British schoolgirl Nora Quoirin was ALIVE for a WEEK before she died from internal bleeding caused by starvation after she got lost in Malaysian jungle, autopsy reveals
Tragic teenager Nora Quiorin was alive in the Malaysian jungle for a week while rescue teams desperately searched for her before she died from intestinal damage caused by hunger and stress, police have revealed today.
The 15-year-old had no signs of physical or sexual violence on her body, pathologists revealed after a 12-hour autopsy, following fears that she could have been kidnapped and killed before her remains were dumped.
The post-mortem result will add further agony to her parents as it meant she had been alive and lost in the jungle for a week while hundreds of search and rescue personnel looked for her.
The remains of the 15-year-old, who vanished on August 4 while on holiday with her family, were discovered naked near a waterfall Tuesday just 1.5miles from where she disappeared.
Her body was taken to a hospital Seremban where pathologists carried out a post-mortem, with the results revealed at a press conference this morning.
Four pathologists had carried out a 12-hour autopsy to determine cause of death after the special needs teen was found following a 10 day search.
The ruptured intestine was most likely caused by stress brought by not eating any food.
Police chief Mohammed Yusop said she had not eaten any food and this was a factor in her death.
Addressing a packed press conference the police chief said her leg had scratches but there was no other sign of violence.
Further tests will be carried out at a laboratory for chemical analysis.
Nora’s parent were this morning informed of the results.
