Singapore - A 15-year-old teenager, whose body was found in a ravine in Malaysia after a ten-day-long search, died from gastrointestinal bleeding caused by starvation, autopsy results showed.
"[Nora Anne Quoirin's] cause of death is gastrointestinal bleeding due to duodenal ulcer complicated by perforation," authorities told reporters in a press conference on Thursday.
The 12-hour-long forensic exam showed the teenager had been dead for 2 to 3 days before her naked body was discovered in a ravine 2.5 kilometres from where she went missing. The autopsy found no evidence of rape.
Authorities also said that "for the time being" they had found no elements suggesting the Irish-French teen was abducted or kidnapped.
Quoirin was reported missing from her hotel room by her family on August 4 at Dusun Resort in the south-western state of Negeri Sembilan, about 80 kilometres from Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur.
