Search for clues in area where Nora Anne was found ends


SEREMBAN: Police have stopped the search for clues in the vicinity where the remains of Irish national Nora Anne Quoirin was found in Pantai Hills near here.

State police chief Dept Comm Datuk Mohamad Mat Yusop said investigators would only return to the area if the need arose.

“As such, we have moved out, ” he said.

DCP Mohamad said that “French and Irish investigators who had been working with Malaysian police have also left the area”.

On Thursday, Malaysian authorities ruled out foul play in the 15-year-old schoolgirl’s death after a nine-hour autopsy which indicated that she most likely died due to upper gastrointestinal bleeding caused by prolonged starvation and stress.

A team of pathologists also ruled that the victim was not raped and that there was no evidence to show that she was abducted or subjected to any form of violence.

Nora Anne’s parents had said although the initial post-mortem results gave some information that helped understand her cause of death, they struggled to understand what truly happened to her.

A search-and-rescue team found Nora Anne’s remains some 2.5km away from the The Dusun resort she was staying in with her family.

She had checked into the resort with her parents Sebastian Marie Philipe and Meabh Jaseprine Quoirin and siblings Innes Julia and Maurice Arthure on Aug 3.
