The family of Nora Quoirin have requested the ending of "unhelpful" comments by family members or those claiming to act on their behalf following the death of their daughter in a Malaysian jungle.

Nóra's body has been claimed by her family and was removed from Tuanku Ja'afar Hospital in Seremban last night after a post-mortem examination on Wednesday. 

The Lucie Blackman Trust is arranging for the repatriation of Nóra's body back to Europe.

However, further details will not be released from the charity due to privacy reasons. ‬

A statement from the Quoirins, through the Lucie Blackman Trust, has also warned against the dangers of comments that do not necessarily reflect the immediate family's views.

"Nóra's family are concerned that continued reporting of comments such as those recently reported are unhelpful and may hinder any investigations, as well as causing confusion and distress for them," the statement said.

"The Lucie Blackman Trust is arranging repatriation of Nóra's body and no further information concerning this, including dates or destinations, will be released at this point."

The statement, issued on their behalf by LBT, added: "The initial postmortem results have given some information that helps us to understand Nóra's cause of death.

"But our beautiful innocent girl died in extremely complex circumstances and we are hoping that soon we will have more answers to our many questions."

Malaysian police said Nóra is likely to have spent a week in the jungle on her own.

The 15-year-old, who was born with the brain defect holoprosencephaly and was described by her family as "vulnerable", went missing from the resort of Dusun on Sunday 4 August.

She died between two and four days before her body was discovered, the post- mortem revealed.

The family said they will be bringing Nóra's body home "where she will finally be laid to rest, close to her loving families in France and Ireland".

Nóra lived in London and was the daughter of French-Irish parents Sebastien and Meabh Quoirin.

The family also thanked Malaysian authorities and search parties for their efforts locating their daughter.

"Tragically, as we know, this wasn't enough to save Nóra," they said.
