They ruled out any criminal act, but her family always said that she could not believe that she had gone out alone and that she could not mourn until all the issues arose. were not resolved.

Nora – who has learning difficulties – may have wandered alone in the jungle, frightened and hungry for a week after her fainting on August 4th.

Schoolgirl's grandfather, Sylvain Quoirin, insisted on "cleaning the dark areas so the family can cry peacefully".

Mr. Quoirin, mayor of a small town in Burgundy, thinks that Nora's body was put there "to get rid of it".

"She was not there yet [during previous searches]. Someone put it there, "he said.

"Can you imagine him walking 2.5 km, naked and barefoot, on rocks, in the middle of the night? For me, it's absurd. "

Pacome Quoirin, graphic designer, of Nora's uncle, is also concerned about the elimination of any criminal element.

"How could she survive for five days in the jungle without food or water, if we believe the theory that she left the hotel alone? We remain very doubtful.

"The conclusions announced do not discredit any criminal act. She could have been kidnapped and fed at first. There is insufficient evidence to draw definitive conclusions. "

Family lawyer Charles Morel said the parents of 45-year-old Nora, Meabh, and 47-year-old Sébastien were treating the autopsy results cautiously and that they were not safe. they did not exclude any criminal aspect of his disappearance.

He told the Irish channel RTE: "We must be very careful about the interpretation of the first result of the autopsy.

"The risk is that if you exclude the criminal hypothesis, it's too early to say."

Nora was "very shy, dependent on her mother and not in her temper to go out at night after a long trip to a place she does not know, in the jungle," Morel said.

"THE FAMILY WANTS THE TRUTH"

He added: "And even at the place where she was found, two kilometers from the seaside resort, it is very strange that she could go alone to not exclude the criminal hypothesis. .

"The family is still struggling to understand that she would have been alone in the jungle."

Mr Morel said the family is waiting for the results of the DNA analysis, which she hopes to have quickly.

"I know the family is very traumatized, they loved their daughter, she was an angel," he said.

"But they are now concerned about the truth because they owe it to Nora, what happened and how she died."

The family's attorney also said that the Malaysian authorities "might tend to prefer the theory of disappearance to the criminal hypothesis", instead of Malaysia's good image for tourism.

The autopsy concluded that the teenager died of internal bleeding from the bowel after an ulcer in the stomach and after a prolonged period of hunger and stress.

Negeri Sembilan police chief Mohamad Mat Yusop said today that the authorities had found no evidence of misconduct and that the autopsy had also revealed that she had not been sexually assaulted.

The officer told the Malay Mail that the area where Nora had finally been found had been searched and that she was moving as rescue teams were trying to locate her.

"We will continue to investigate and find out what has really happened," he said.

How stomach ulcers can lead to death

When a stomach ulcer bursts – known as the medical term of perforation – it can prove deadly.

The ulcer eats through the stomach or intestinal mucosa, allowing bacteria that live in the stomach to escape and infect the lining of the stomach. abdomen – the peritoneum.

This is known as peritonitis.

Peritonitis can very quickly spread and cause sepsis or intoxication by blood, before spreading to other organs and causing organ failure.

If it is not treated, it can prove fatal.

Ulcers can be caused by a variety of causes, ranging from H. pylori digestive tract bacteria to certain medications, including nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen.

Although this is not a direct cause, extreme stress can aggravate an underlying ulcer and make more likely complications such as perforation, according to the Mayo Clinic.
