Fifteen-year-old Nora Quoirin; Malaysian police press conference


RTÉ journalist Jackie Fox told RTÉ’s News At One:

“After eight hours, the police just came out to reporters there within the last few minutes and, speaking in Malaysian, we’re just getting some translation here.

“They said that the post-mortem started at 11.45am [local time] today on the remains of Nora Quoirin and police said that no cause of death has been determined yet after almost eight hours of examination.

“They said that four pathologists are working on it at the moment, including one from Kuala Lumpur hospital. They said that tomorrow they will hold another press conference. They did not give time or detail on that at the moment.

“But we’re still going to have to wait for answers on what happened to Nora Quoirin.”

    I hope the family are getting the privacy and calm they need to deal with this trauma

      In the land of sunshine and rainbows, where unicorns are running freely, do you really think the media will leave the family alone? Look at what happened to the Hartes after Michaela was murdered on her honeymoon.

            True. I must be merely naive, hoping that the media would respect a grieving family but past precedent tells me it won’t.

            Naive, millie? I think not. Maybe just hopeful, yet. Please stay that way. The world needs more hope

          I didn’t mean to be cynical – I wish that everyone loves and respects everyone else – is all. Sadly, it’s not so much the case.

    Broadsheet could lead the way here by not following the media pack and doing something different.

    Some horrible creatures on Twitter playing Inspector Clouseau and pointing the finger with gay abandon instead of waiting for the results of the post mortem.

        They hired a lawyer. Do you blame them? They need someone on the ground who speaks English to liaise with the cops. How would you react if your daughter disappeared? Most people would be frantic, hysterical even, and would pull out all the stops. I remember my godson going missing on a mountain years ago – he was about 4 at the time – for about five minutes, and it was the longest, most desperate five minutes of my life. Have mercy on them.

          1. Lilly

            Where you’re fighting for your daughter’s survival in unfamiliar surroundings, a lawyer is a good person to have in your corner. Why would you question this family’s judgement in such a distressing situation?

    A child is dead

    I don’t care who you are
    Or who the family have engaged
    Or what language the investigation is conducted through

    This is a time for Decency and Humanity
    Nothing else
