Reward not paid out after discovery of Nora Quoirin's body, charity confirms

The family of Nora Quoirin have said they hope to have "more answers to our many questions" about the death of their 15-year-old daughter in the Malaysian jungle.

After meeting Malaysia's deputy prime minister and minister for the state on Friday, her family said they are "struggling to understand the events of the last 10 days".

A charity assisting the family of Nora Quoirin have confirmed a reward was not paid out in connection with the discovery of the 15-year-old's body.

The remains of Nora Anne, who is of Franco-Irish parentage, were found on Tuesday following a search and rescue operation mounted by authorities after she was reported missing from an eco-tourism resort near here on Aug 4.

A full postmortem report has not been completed as some test results remain outstanding but her exact cause of death was given by the police as "upper gastrointestinal bleeding due to duodenal ulcer complicated with perforation". She is the truest, most precious girl and we love her infinitely.

The statement, issued on the family's behalf by the Lucie Blackman Trust, added: "The initial post-mortem results have given some information that helps us to understand Nora's cause of death".

Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah and Raja Permaisuri Agong, Tunku Hajah Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah, say they are deeply saddened to hear of her passing.

The 12 homes not cleared for residents to return were in the area "most significantly impacted", the city said Thursday night. The driver was taken into custody and four police officers and firefighters were taken to hospital.


"We know why Nora died, in simple terms from starvation, we know where she ended up, but we don't necessarily know how she got there".

However, Malaysian authorities believe Quoirin may have climbed out an open window in the living room of the cottage.

Nora disappeared on August 3.

'We will be bringing Nora home where she will finally be laid to rest, close to her loving families in France and Ireland'. "The cruelty of her being taken away is unbearable".

Her unclothed body was found after a 10-day search in an area that had previously been searched by rescuers.

Nora's body was discovered 1.6km from the resort near a stream, with an autopsy later determining she died as a result of stress and starvation.

With the post mortem finding no signs of sexual violence or physical injury, they continue to be convinced Nora wandered into the dense jungle of her own free will.
