The father of a French-Irish teenager, who was found dead near a Malaysian jungle resort after he went missing on a vacation last year, says his daughter did not have the stamina or instinct to survive for days in the jungle.
KULA LUPUR, Malaysia – The father of a French-Irish teenager, who was found dead near a Malaysian jungle resort after he went missing on a vacation last year, said on Thursday that his daughter had days to survive in the jungle Will not have stamina or instinct. .
Sebastian Quorin told an inquest about the death of Nora Anne Quorin that the condition of the 15-year-old’s body also did not support the police theory that she got out of the family’s hut on her own, walked and hid in the woods.
He said he had visited the area where Nora’s body was found, including a drive from the resort and another hour of walking along a rocky stream in a dense and slippery area.
“I don’t believe she used to mimic at all … she didn’t have a living instinct,” the French man said via video link from his London home. “I don’t think Nora would have the stamina or the strength … to move forward for days. Nora doesn’t know what to eat, she will be severely dehydrated … she will be very weak.”
The massive discovery came a day after his family went missing on August 4 last year from his family’s slum at the Dusun eco-resort in Nora’s southern Negeri Sembilan state. His body was found on August 13, about 2.5 kilometers (1.6 mi) from the resort, near a stream in a Palm Oil estate.
Her family believes that she was kidnapped because she had a mental and physical disability and she could not get away on her own.
Police said during interrogation that an investigation showed no criminal activity and Nora was not kidnapped. Police believe that she came out of a window on her own and the autopsy showed that she was bleeding from the intestines due to starvation and stress.
Quorin said the rescue team combed the area where she was found four times with a canine unit but failed to see her.
When he and his wife were asked to identify the corpse, they said they noticed that Nora’s legs “did not seem particularly damaged” and were only soiled.
“I try to think how this was possible because the police told us that Nora is on the move. … I am not an expert but for us, Nora’s body did not seem favorable for someone walking in the woods half-naked without shoes, “he said.
Quorin said when she feared that Nora’s usual reaction is to “freeze, look down and call for Daddy or Daddy”.
He said that it is possible that the kidnappers later caught Nora on her handicap, large-scale search operation and media attention on the case.
In her testimony on Wednesday, Nora’s disability spoke to Mabeh Quorin, the girl’s Irish mother. She has said that it would be impossible for her daughter to defecate in the open and climb out of a window in a hut. The window was not closed due to broken latch.
She said that Nora and her two siblings were only wearing their underwear when they went to bed because it was a hot night. Nora’s body was found naked, and it was unclear what happened to her panties, but police said the autopsy showed no indication that she had been sexually assaulted.
The couple’s two young children were to testify in private later on Thursday. The coronovirus epidemic is being questioned through video conferencing. Later this month, a British physician who conducted a second autopsy would also testify remotely.
The Quorin family has sued the resort owner for alleged negligence. He stated in his lawsuit that there was no security at the resort and Nora was found missing in the morning with a broken latch window.
