    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — A British pathologist said Monday there was no positive evidence that a French-Irish teenager found dead last year near a Malaysian jungle resort was sexually assaulted, but he couldn’t fully rule it out due to severe body decomposition. Nathaniel Cary, a forensic pathologist who performed a second autopsy on the body of Nora Anne Quorin in the United Kingdom, said he agreed with Malaysia’s findings that the teen died of intestinal bleeding due to starvation and stress. But he also told a Malaysian virtual inquest into Nora’s death that he couldn’t fully exclude that the teen was sexual assaulted as sometimes it may not show. He also said the poor condition of the body made it hard to determine if there were semen traces or the DNA of strangers. “I think we can exclude very serious trauma to the genitalia … but I won’t be able to exclude minimal trauma because of the decomposition obscuring things,” Cary said from the U.K. “The difficulty here is because of the decomposition, the forensic evidence would be disadvantaged...

Lawyers for the resort then asked Mrs Todd to elaborate on someone breaking in that would be "highly unusual". She explained how her family...
    The father of a French-Irish teenager whose body was found in the Malaysian jungle told an inquest Thursday he heard noises in the family's holiday chalet before she disappeared. The body of Nora Quoirin, a 15-year-old with mental and physical disabilities, was discovered unclothed last year after a massive hunt through the rainforest. Authorities insist there was no foul play but her parents believe she was abducted from the resort where they were staying near Kuala Lumpur, saying the teen would not have wandered off alone. Testifying at the inquest into her death, Sebastien Quoirin said he "heard some muffled noise coming from the chalet" late at night on the day the London-based family arrived.

    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — The father of a French-Irish teenager who was found dead last year near a Malaysian jungle resort after vanishing on a holiday said Thursday that his daughter would not have had the stamina or instinct to survive for days in the jungle. Sebastien Quoirin told an inquest into Nora Anne Quoirin’s death that the condition of the 15-year-old’s body also didn’t support the police theory that she ventured out of the family’s cottage on her own, walked and hid in the forest. He said he had visited the area where Nora’s body was found, which involved a drive out of the resort and another hour of walking along a rocky stream in dense and slippery terrain. “I don’t believe she would have coped at all … she didn’t have a survival instinct,” the French man said via video link from his London home. “I don’t believe Nora would have had the stamina or the strength to be on the move for … days. Nora would not know what to eat, she would be...
    KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — The mother of an Irish-French teen whose body was found last year near a Malaysian jungle resort where she vanished while on vacation said Wednesday that evidence may have been lost because police were slow to act on the possibility that her daughter could have been abducted. Meabh Quoirin told an inquest into her 15-year-old daughter’s death that she believed she heard “muffled and whispering” sounds of two people inside the family’s cottage the morning Nora Anne Quoirin disappeared, but that she took no action because she was asleep and not fully conscious at the time. The mother, who is Irish, said police were more focused on search and rescue, and only started looking for fingerprints and interviewing resort staff several days later, by which time many people had passed through the property. She said that the police officer sent to take her statement also struggled to communicate effectively in English and that she had to explain herself repeatedly. Some senior police officials who later approached her were also “quite rude and arrogant,” telling her...
    In an age of virtual birthdays, weddings and other major milestone events that are now celebrated from a social distance during COVID-19, one vacation company is aiming to bring families together for the holidays to celebrate in-person — in what it's calling a "resort bubble." Club Wyndham, a national timeshare vacation rental company with more than 200 resorts in popular vacation destinations, has launched a 15-night “Quar-nucopia Package” inviting extended family members to book a getaway inside separate apartment-style suites. The "Quar-nucopia Package" boasts a 15-day vacation package for immediate families to quarantine while on vacation separately ahead of Thanksgiving. (iStock).  Families can stay at the same resort — however, each immediate family will be provided with resources to quarantine for 15 days in their own two-bedroom suite, culminating in a Turkey Day dinner on the final day, when the extended group will gather on property. The idea is to minimize the risk of COVID-19, Club Wyndham says. It's unclear, however, if guests will be tested pre-trip or post, on the property.  FAUCI SAYS THANKSGIVING PLANS WILL BE AN 'INDIVIDUAL CHOICE'...
    For more than 150 years, Scott’s Family Resort has beckoned families to its nearly 1,000 bucolic acres. But the waterfront compound in Deposit, New York — just under a three-hour drive from the city — is best known as the idyllic backdrop for a few beloved episodes of Amazon Prime’s hit series, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” The Catskills retreat in Delaware County, near Binghamton in upstate New York, has been operating since 1869. But now, due to lingering debts and the ailing health of its owners, who are in their 90s, the Scott family is ready to pass the torch to a new proprietor for $6 million. The auction for the property ended on Sept. 17 without a qualified bid, so it still remains on the market. After its star turn in “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” Scott’s Family Resort is now for sale.Scott's Family Resort In the show, set in the 1950s and ’60s, Miriam “Midge” Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) is a housewife turned standup comedian who spends summers at the fictional Steiner Resort in the so-called “Borscht Belt.” She and...

    (CBSDFW.COM) – Slowly — and cautiously — students are returning to classrooms across North Texas. But, they’re not necessarily returning to campus. Many of those classrooms are at home. “All we had to look at is what we had in the spring,” said Jillian Glawson of Prosper. “And I knew for sure that’s not what we wanted for our family in the fall.” Certain that they’d had enough of the uncertainty, they joined the exodus of families looking to homeschool. “Not knowing. Would schools be closing again? Were they going to open virtually? Were they going to open in person?” she said of the questions that shaped their decision. “I just really wanted a full year of as few interruptions as possible.” And they are not alone. According to the Texas Home School Coalition, public school withdrawals are up 400% over August a year ago — and that’s just the withdrawals processed through the agency’s website. As for Glawson, she says the change has been good for her family. “Seeing my kids bond and seeing how well they are getting...

    By Ebrahim Harris SEREMBAN, Malaysia (Reuters) - A Malaysian court opened an inquest on Monday into the death of an Irish teenager whose body was found near a jungle stream, 10 days after she went missing during a family holiday at a rainforest resort. The naked body of Nora Anne Quoirin, 15, who suffered from learning difficulties, was found in a ravine near the Dusun resort in Seremban, about 70 km (44 miles) south of the Malaysian capital in August last year. Police ruled out abduction as a motive, saying they had found no sign of foul play, but her family questioned the findings and said she had never before left them voluntarily. The inquest aimed to answer questions including "when and where did the deceased die, how and in what manner the deceased came by her death, and ... whether there is any person who was criminally concerned in the cause of death", coroner Maimoonah Aid told the court. Government lawyer Muhamad Iskandar Ahmad said 64 witnesses were expected to be called during the two-week inquest at the Seremban...
    SEREMBAN, Malaysia (AP) — A Malaysian coroner began an inquest Monday into the death of a French-Irish teen, a year after her naked body was found near a nature resort where she mysteriously vanished while on holiday. Nora Anne Quoirin’s disappearance from her family’s cottage at the Dusun eco-resort in southern Negeri Sembilan state on Aug. 4 last year, a day after her family arrived for their holiday, sparked a massive search operation. Her naked body was discovered Aug. 13 beside a stream in a palm oil estate about 2.5 kilometers (1.6 miles) from the resort. Coroner Maimoonah Aid said the inquest is aimed at determining when Nora died, the cause of her death, how she came to her death, and if anyone was criminally involved. Police have said there was no sign the teen was abducted or raped, with an autopsy showing the 15-year-old succumbed to intestinal bleeding due to starvation and stress. But her Irish mother and French father, Meabh and Sebastien Quoirin, believed Nora was abducted as she has mental and physical disabilities and couldn’t have wandered...

    BOSTON (CBS) – After a seven-month odyssey, Albie is finally home with his family. “We’re very lucky that we were able to get him back,” said Amanda Argentieri. It was more than luck, it was love and determination that brought Albie home. Earlier this year, Argentieri was living in Shanghai, China. She left Albie at a Chinese pet resort for a week’s vacation in the U.S. While she was away, the coronavirus broke out. Earlier this year, Amanda Argentieri was living in Shanghai, China.

But at the last minute, the flight was canceled. Argentieri had to find another way to get Albie out – and she did. “Our flight volunteer was...
    In an attempt to breathe new life into their marriage, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian-West have rented out an entire 500-acre resort deep in the San Juan Mountains. The Wests left Colorado’s Dunton River Camp earlier this week for the former cattle ranch along the Delores River, renting out the entire property for a whopping $43K per night, TMZ reports. The high rate gave the family exclusive access to the resort’s campfires, cabins, hot springs, hiking trails and everything else needed for a glamping getaway. This latest family vacay follows a weeklong trip to the Dominican Republic where West was reunited with his four kids, North, 7, Saint, 4, Chicago, 2, and 15-month-old Psalm, after being holed up for weeks at his $14 million Wyoming ranch. “They decided to travel together so they can be away in private,” a source told People, adding that the “focus is on their marriage.” The site also reports that Kardashian, 39, is “exhausted.” “Between the kids, work, and dealing with Kanye’s bipolar episodes, it’s been hard for her to think clearly,” the source...

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Three teenagers fleeing police while carrying a semiautomatic gun in a backpack jumped a wall at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, but probably didn’t know that’s where they were, authorities said Wednesday. Palm Beach Police spokesman Michael Ogrodnick said the 15-year-old boys were arrested shortly after they entered the grounds of the resort Friday and dumped the backpack, which contained a mini AK-47 with a loaded 14-round magazine. He said the three are lucky that neither the president nor any family members were there, because Secret Service agents might have shot them. The club is closed for the summer. “They had no idea where they were,” Ogrodnick said. According to a police report, a Palm Beach officer spotted the teens sitting in a parked car early Friday morning about 2 miles (3 kilometers) north of Mar-a-Lago. When he turned on his overhead lights, the car sped south toward Mar-a-Lago. As they approached the club, the teens spotted a second officer who was conducting an unrelated traffic stop and abruptly stopped the car, probably thinking it...

    After almost 5 months of hiatus, the NBA will return on July 30 in a bubble in Orlando on the ESPN Wide World of Sports in Walt Disney World. The LA Clippers, led by Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are one of the favourites to win the title. They currently sit second in the Western Conference. One of the veterans on the team is veteran sixth man and offensive plug Lou Williams, who answered media questions on a Zoom call. Answering questions about the bubble to the media, Lou Wil said “The process, it’s been unique, you know, getting tested every day. You have to wear your masks everywhere besides the gym. It’s just been a unique experience. It’s like walking around if you’re on vacation with your family in a resort, and it’s just basketball players everywhere. That’s what it feels like. That’s what it looks like, and then you get to play basketball at the same time.” Williams has averaged 18.7 points this season on 41% shooting on two-point attempts and 36.3% outside the three-point line....
    Jennifer Alejandra Insuasti, 32, who worked at Walt Disney World in guest relations has been charged with first-degree grand theft A woman who worked in guest relations at Disney World has been accused of stealing $100,000 from the company which she allegedly funneled to her friends and family under the guise of refunds. Jennifer Insuasti, 32, from Kissimmee, Florida, has been charged with grand theft. Her job involved offering cash refunds to guests who were unhappy about their experience for any reason while visiting the popular Orlando theme park.  Her role also allowed her to also offer free tickets as compensation. But for two years, between March 2016 and July 2018 she allegedly issued more than 40 fake refunds, and directed the cash towards the bank accounts of people she knew, according to the Orlando Sentinel. 'Agents found that, on numerous occasions, using old refund accounts as a cover, she misdirected money into her personal account or the accounts of her friends,' the Florida Department of Law Enforcement alleges.  'Guests still received their refunds, but money was stolen directly...
