SEREMBAN: Coroner Maimoonah Aid, who will be presiding over the Nora Anne Quoirin inquest, visited the resort in Pantai Hill near here where the teenager had arrived to spend a holiday with her family last August on Thursday (Aug 13) morning.

The coroner, who was accompanied by the inquest conducting team, police and Fire and Rescue Department personnel, arrived at the property at around 9.15am.

She is expected to spend some time at the property to get a better picture of where the Quoirins had put up and the room where the 15-year-old girl was supposed to have spent the night before she disappeared.

The court will hear testimonies from 64 of the 102 witnesses shortlisted by inquest coordinating officer Muhamad Iskandar Ahmad during the hearing which will be held over two weeks beginning Aug 24.

Nora Anne, who suffered from learning difficulties, disappeared from the resort on Aug 3 last year, a day after her family arrived for a holiday.

Her body was found 10 days later next to a stream in a deep ravine near the resort where the family was staying.

Police have ruled out foul play in her death. An autopsy on her remains revealed that she had died from internal bleeding, probably caused by prolonged hunger and stress.

She had also suffered intestinal damage, and died two or three days before her body was found.

However, her family believes there was a criminal element to her disappearance as she was a special needs child and they claimed she had never before left them voluntarily.

Nora Anne's family is in the UK and will not be attending the hearing.
