Yesterday (Tuesday, 13th August), Nora Quoirin’s body was discovered at approximately 2.5km from The Dusun Pantai Hill resort.
That same night, her family members arrived at the forensics department and confirmed her body. Parents Sebastien and Meabh declined to speak as they left the mortuary moments later.
However, this morning (Wednesday, 14th August), the family has released an official statement via missing persons charity the Lucie Blackman Trust. It reads:
“We would like to thank all the people that have been searching for Nóra and trying their best to find her. We thank the local people here and those far and wide for their prayers and support at this time. Nóra has brought people together, especially from France, Ireland, Britain and Malaysia, united in their love and support for her and her family. She has truly touched the whole world. To all our friends and family at home, we can’t thank you enough for all your love.
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.”
May she rest in peace 🙁
