Police said that before dying in hospital da Costa identified the man who shot him. They are currently trying to locate the suspect, who is already known to local police. Emma Kelty Credit: Twitter/Emt101s Police believe that da Costa was the leader of the local gang of pirates responsible for killing Miss Kelty. A police spokeswoman said: “After killing Emma and stealing her money and possessions, the suspects celebrated and drew a lot of attention to themselves. Other criminals came looking for them.” So in or near coari (100km away) i will have my boat stolen and i will be killed too.

Three days before she was last heard from, Miss Kelty wrote on Facebook on September 10: “So in or near coari (100km away) i will have my boat stolen and i will be killed too. Nice.”
