A postmortem of Nora Quoirin, the 15-year-old girl who went missing in the Malaysian jungle, has revealed no evidence of suspicious circumstances leading to her death.
The police today (August 15) ruled out foul play in the mysterious death of Nora Anne.
Medical experts ruled that her death was caused by upper gastrointestinal bleeding, said state police chief Datuk Mohamad Mat Yusop.
The internal bleeding could have been caused from prolonged starvation.
“They also found that she was not raped.
“There was nothing to show that she was abducted or subjected to any form of violence, ” he told reporters.
The autopsy is one of the longest carried out at the Tuanku Ja’afar Hospital (TJH) in Negeri Sembilan, say local news portals.
“It is reliably learnt that the post-mortem on the remains of the 15-year-old Irish national, which started at 11.45am Wednesday (Aug 14), ended only at 9pm,” said The Star.

The body of the London teenager was discovered by a team of local hikers on Tuesday afternoon after she had been missing for 10 days.
Nora’s body was found unclothed down a steep, inaccessible ravine near a stream.
