NÓRA QUOIRIN AUTOPSY: Mystery still surrounds death of tragic Irish teenager
FOUR pathologists working on the post-mortem examination of tragic Irish teenager Nóra Quoirin have been unable to determine her cause of death.
The team of pathologists spent eight hours working on Nóra’s autopsy in Malaysia, but their preliminary findings were inconclusive.
“The post-mortem is ongoing, therefore no conclusion has been reached yet,” said Matthew Searle of the Lucie Blackman Trust, which is helping the family.
He added: “There will be a time for comment, but that time is not now. Let the family grieve in peace.”
A further update is expected tomorrow.
Nóra’s lifeless body was discovered yesterday by volunteer rescue workers in the Dusun rainforest resort where her family had been holidaying.
In a statement, Nóra’s family said their “hearts are broken” after the discovery, but also offered their thanks to those involved in the search.
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. We will always love our Nóra.”
