Nora Anne Quoirin Wiki – Nora Anne Quoirin Biography
Nora Anne Quoirin, the London schoolgirl found dead while on vacation in a Malaysian jungle, has said they are “totally disappointed” after a coroner ruled that no third party was involved and that she likely died as a result of an accident.
Coroner Maimoonah Aid ruled out homicide, natural death and suicide on Monday and said the 15-year-old French-Irish girl was likely lost after leaving her family’s cabin alone.
“After hearing all the relevant evidence, I ruled that no one was involved in Nora Anne’s death,” Maimoonah told a court in the city of Seremban. “It is more likely that she died by accident.”
Maimoonah said there were no suspicious circumstances prior to the disappearance, no request for ransom or signs of intrusion into the family’s chalet. The teenager probably left the homestay “on her own and then got lost in the abandoned palm oil plantation,” she said.
“For me to speculate and boast about her actions and the involvement of a third party without any proof, that would be a breach of my duty, so the investigation is closed.”
Nora Anne Quoirin Age
Nora Anne Quoirin is 15 years old.
Nora’s parents, waiting for an open verdict and listening from their home in London, said in a statement: “Once again we see that justice fights to support the most vulnerable in society, committing only to special needs to a superficial level, and not at the level that really reflects children like Nora.
“We believe that we have fought not only for Nora but in honor of all children with special needs in this world who deserve our most committed support and the most careful application of justice.
“This is Nora’s unique legacy and we will never let it go.”
Nora’s parents, who spoke via video link, questioned these findings and criticized aspects of the police response. Meabh and Sebastien Quoirin repeatedly emphasized that it would have been completely out of place for her to have left alone.
Her parents talked about how Nora had a neurological condition that meant she would have had a hard time venturing that far. Nora, who was 15, was born with holoprosencephaly, which affected both her balance and mobility, and her family described her as vulnerable.
Her mother told the forensic court that she doubted that Nora, who weighed 30 kg (4 10 pounds), would have been strong enough to open and climb out of the chalet window. Nora had never walked out the door of her house at home, the court heard.
At the time of Nora’s disappearance, her parents had repeatedly warned her that they believed she had been abducted, but the police continued to treat the incident as a missing person case.
Meabh said she feared crucial evidence had been lost because police were too slow to investigate the possibility of a criminal element, and described problems with the response. The officer sent to take a statement had trouble communicating in English, he said, while some police officers were “quite rude and arrogant.
Both parents said they heard muffled whispers inside the family chalet the night their daughter disappeared. They had been half asleep at the time and therefore did not act.
Nora, from Balham, south London, disappeared overnight during a family holiday at a resort in Seremban, south Kuala Lumpur in August 2019. She had been sleeping in a bedroom with her brother and sister, but when she family woke up one morning. they found that she had disappeared. She was barefoot and wearing only underwear. A large window was found open in the family’s chalet.
After a 10-day search, Nora’s body was discovered naked next to a stream in a dense jungle, 1.2 miles (1.9 km) from the compound where she had been staying. An autopsy concluded that Nora likely died of hunger and stress after spending seven days in the jungle.
Police said their investigations found no evidence that Nora had been abducted, and Malaysian authorities later classified the case as “requiring no further action”. However, Nora’s parents lobbied for an investigation, stating that many questions about her disappearance remained unanswered.
During the investigation, which began in August, a senior police official, Mohamad Mat Yusop, said he did not see anything suspicious when inspecting the chalet where Nora had been staying and that he believed she had slipped out of the window.
