Nora Anne's family appeals for end to speculation on her death

SEREMBAN: The family of Irish teenager Nora Anne Quoirin has appealed to all parties to stop speculating on the cause of her death.

"We urge an end to speculation. Please let the family grieve in peace and the authorities do their job, " said a statement issued on their behalf by the Lucie Blackman Trust.

There have been lots of speculation on the cause of Nora Anne's death which prompted the authorities to issue a warning against those sharing fake news.

A search-and-rescue team found Nora Anne's remains in a ravine at 1.57pm on Tuesday (Aug 13).

Her remains had to be winched up by helicopter and taken to the hospital for the post-mortem.

Nora Anne's naked body was found in a stream some 2.5km from the resort she was staying in.

The teenager disappeared from the resort she was living with her family on Aug 4.

She had checked into the property with her parents Sebastian Marie Philipe and Meabh Jaseprine Quoirin and siblings Innes Julia and Maurice Arthure a day earlier.

However, she was not found in her room she shared with her siblings the following morning.

A window in the room that could only be opened from the inside was open.

The girl who is of French-Irish parentage had learning difficulties.
