Nora Quoirin Post-Mortem Reveals Teenager Died Of Starvation In Malaysia
The teenager, who was born with the brain defect holoprosencephaly and was described by her family as “vulnerable”, went missing on Sunday August 4.
Her unclothed body was discovered on Tuesday following a 10-day search. police have also said there was “no suspicion of foul play”.
In a statement released on Wednesday, Nora’s family said their “hearts are broken” and paid tribute to her as “the truest, most precious girl”.
They said: “Nora is at the heart of our family. She is the truest, most precious girl and we love her infinitely.
“The cruelty of her being taken away is unbearable. Our hearts are broken.”
They offered thanks to those involved in the search for the teenager, adding: “Nora has brought people together, especially from France, Ireland, Britain and Malaysia, united in their love and support for her and her family.”
Hundreds of people were involved in the search operation and it was volunteer helpers who found the teenager’s body.
Deputy police chief Mazlan Mansor told reporters at a press conference on Tuesday that the body “was not in any clothings” and that the probe was considering all possibilities, including the “angle of criminal investigation”.
He said the body was found in an area that had previously been searched by rescuers.
During the 10-day search, the teenager’s parents, Meabh and Sebastien Quoirin, thanked those looking for her, as fundraising pages set up by Nora’s aunt and uncle collected more than £100,000 from well-wishers.
A book of condolence was opened on Wednesday at the city hall in Belfast, where Quoirin is from, with Lord Mayor of Belfast John Finucane the first to sign it.
He said the teenager’s death was “heart-breaking”, and praised the “clear and positive” show of solidarity from the Belfast public.
A special service was held on Tuesday at the south Belfast church where Nora was baptised. Her grandparents are parishioners.
The head teacher at Nora’s school in Wandsworth, south-west London, paid tribute to her as “a delight to work with” and said her fellow pupils and others who knew her will be supported during a difficult time.
The Quoirins said Nora’s condition meant she was not independent and had difficulty walking.
Describing her as a “very special person”, they said she would not have gone anywhere alone.
Search crews looking for the teenager played her mother’s voice in the dense Malaysian forest near where she disappeared.
Police had said Nora, who was travelling on an Irish passport, was believed to have climbed out of her resort room window.
The Paris prosecutor had opened a criminal investigation into Quoirin’s case for kidnapping on August 9, a spokeswoman told Reuters news agency.
French prosecutors regularly launch investigations on cases involving French citizens abroad. Nora’s mother is from Belfast while her father is French. The family lived in Balham, London.
A police press conference is expected to take place later today. Related... Nora Quoirin: French Police Launch Criminal Investigation Into Teenager's Death Family Of Nora Quoirin Issue Emotional Statement After Her Body Is Found In Malaysia
