Nora Quoirin's family says it has 'many questions' about the teenager's death

Grandfather Sylvain Quoirin

The grief-stricken parents of a Franco-Irish teen found dead in Malaysia after she disappeared from a rainforest resort claimed her body Friday, police said, following an autopsy that showed no signs of foul play.

They emphasised this was not the end of the case and the criminal and missing persons investigations continue.

A post-mortem result declared that Nora had died of starvation and stress after getting lost in the jungle near Dunsun, a resort some 39 miles south of the country's capital, Kuala Lumpur.

Mohamad Mat Yusop, the police chief of Negeri Sembilan state where Nora Quoirin died, told AFP her remains would be repatriated to London where she had lived with her family.

They also thanked Malaysian authorities and search parties for their efforts locating the teenager.

"We will be bringing Nora home where she will finally be laid to rest, close to her loving families in France and Ireland", the family added.

She is believed to have died two to three days after disappearing, he said.

"There were some abrasion and bruises on her leg but they were not likely to have led to her death", said Yusop.

Immigrants "most commonly" avoided signing up for SNAP benefits and Medicaid because of the rule , the report said. Trump has denied using that language and said he wanted immigrants to come the United States from all nations.

In their first statement since an autopsy concluded Nora probably died as a result of starvation and stress during a week in the jungle, the family said that while the "initial postmortem results have given some information that helps us to understand Nora's cause of death", they were not entirely satisfied with the findings so far.

Malaysian police have said they do not believe foul play was involved in Nora's case but have not ruled it out.

Mr Morel said: "One of the effects of her condition is that she was very dependent on her parents".

Nora's grandfather Sylvain Quoirin told the Mail there were "dark areas" that needed to be cleared up, suggesting it was possible that the reason her body wasn't found originally was because someone "put her there".

A massive search-and-rescue operation was launched following her disappearance on Aug 4, involving various authorities including the police, military, fire and rescue service and civil defence force as well as the Orang Asli and volunteer hikers.

British and French police asked to stay at the resort (pictured) to test whether an intruder could have taken the teenager away unnoticed.

Nora Anne's father Sebastien Marie Philipe is French while her mother Meabh Jaseprine Quoirin is Irish.
