The post-mortem on Nora Quoirin did not find any signs of injuries or violence on her body and concluded that she likely died around four days before she was found, Negri Sembilan police chief Datuk Mohamad Mat Yusop said today.
During a press conference to announce the results of the medical examination from yesterday, he said there were signs she suffered intestinal bleeding but this was likely due to stress and having gone without food for days.
“There were no signs of rape. The bruises on her legs do not indicate foul play,” he said.
“There are no suspicions of foul play,” he emphasised.
The state police chief said the time of death was likely no more than four days before she was found.
There was also no evidence “for the time being” to indicate she was a victim of kidnapping, police said.
Samples from her body were sent for toxicological tests but results are still pending.
He added that the Quoirins may now claim her body at any time but said they have yet to make preparations to do so.
