The Coroner’s Court in Seremban was told yesterday that eight fingerprints were lifted by the photo and fingerprint unit of the Nilai district police headquarters (IPD) from the side of a window on the lower floor of the villa occupied by Nora Anne Quoirin on the night of Aug 4, 2019 when she went missing.

ACP Wan Rukman Wan Hassan, 55, who is now the strategic planning officer at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in Bukit Aman, said 20 fingerprint samples were also taken for comparison from the family members of Dusun Resort manager Haanim Ahmed Bamadhaj, employees and former resort workers, as well as Nora Anne’s family.

Wan Rukman, who is the 11th witness in the inquest proceedings to determine the cause of the teenager’s death, said the samples were sent to Bukit Aman for analysis and matching.

“The results found that four of the eight fingerprints had inadequate features and could not be matched, while four were in suitable condition and one matched the mother of the missing person,” he said when testifying on the seventh day of the proceedings before the coroner Maimoonah Aid.

Wan Rukman, who was with the Negeri Sembilan CID at the time, said the results of the fingerprint analysis were conveyed to him two days after Nora Anne was reported missing from her accommodation at the villa at Sora House, Dusun Resort, Pantai.

When asked by the family’s lawyer S Sakthyvel what he meant by inadequate features, he said only experts could determine them.

When asked if the eight prints included one from Nora Anne, Wan Rukman said they could not be matched as the teenager’s fingerprint sample was also inadequate.

He added that the girl’s fingerprint sample was obtained through assistance from Interpol.

When asked if Nora Anne’s sample was taken when her body was found on Aug 13, Wan Rukman said some were taken for comparison but could not be used as her fingers had shrivelled.

The court was also told that eight other prints were found on the window frame of the upper floor of the villa, as well as a blood stain in the bathroom.

Nora Anne, 15, went missing on Aug 4 last year, a day after she and her family arrived in Malaysia for a two-week holiday at a resort in Pantai, about 60km south of Kuala Lumpur.

Her body was found on Aug 13 near a creek in a ravine, about 2.5km from the resort.

Preliminary surgical reports found no criminal elements in her death. She was said to have died from gastrointestinal bleeding due to prolonged hunger and stress.
