The Malaysian police have issued the results of Nóra Quoirin’s autopsy. The teenager went missing from a family holiday in Malaysia last Sunday.


Malaysian police have revealed that, according to an autopsy, teenager Nóra Quoirin died of internal bleeding in her intestine, which was likely caused by “hunger or extreme stress”.

Nóra was reported missing on Sunday, August 4, after her father discovered she was not in their hotel room.

At a press conference at Negeri Sembilan Police HQ, just before 2pm local-time (7am Irish-time), the police said that “for the time being, there is no suspicion of foul play” and no signs of violence or abduction.

They added that it is thought that Nóra died two to three days after disappearing.

Nóra’s body was found on Tuesday after a 10-day search. She was found just over a mile (2km) from the hotel where she went missing. Her parents identified her body.

A tribute

The Lucie Blackman Trust, a British charity that supports the families of those of have gone missing abroad, issued a statement yesterday on behalf of Nóra’s parents, where they paid tribute to their daughter. They said: “Nóra 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.”

Nóra had previously been described by her parents as “a very special person” who is “fun, funny, and extremely loving”, and whose family was “her whole world”.
