[UPDATE: Nurin’s parents accepted the fact that the body found in a bag is their daughter due to overwhelming scientific evidence found by the police. Click here.]
Late yesterday afternoon, an incessant beep from my motorola pierced the thoughts in my head. An old friend sent me a text message I will never forget: “Jane Doe is Nurin!” My heart sank a million times. In a cruel twist of fate, Nurin Jazlin went up to heaven to be with God. In the heart of my hearts, I am eternally grateful to know that she suffers no more.
I silently said a prayer for her. I believe in science and of course, I believe in DNA. My heart goes out to Nurin’s parents and family. No parents should outlive their children – so I was told. I hope the second DNA test will give Nurin’s parents the closure they badly need.
I tried to compose this posting since last night but to no avail. Anger and despair overwhelmed me.
Dear God, why her?
To the pepertrator of the despicable act: I hope you die a thousand painful deaths in this life and after. I hope God bestows upon you the same pain you subjected her to. And for as long as I live, Nurin Jazrin will always be in my prayers.
To Farah Nellia Mohd Faizal, Nurul Ariesya Ezhar Fahim, Nur Aishah Mahadi, Aishah, Nur Dinie Sani Hasrul Sani, Kak Ngah, Zahra Syakira Zairul Hisham, Iman Amani Azmi, Tatiana Zainal Remy, Shahirah Mohd Asri, Dina Nazman, Qistina Reza, Qistina & Irina my nieces, unborn Lufty’s girl, Sofia Darwina and the names I untentionally left out here: stay where your parents can see you and don’t, ever, talk to strangers.
