Suicide at the Burj Khalifa

Laura’s Voice Whispers from an Angel. An extract from page 7.

Her love for Mubarak, her need to be loved by him, brought out an intense vulnerability in her. In another message to the same friend, she said, “Mubarak messed me so much. I fell so hard, until the end, because I needed to know the truth. I could not let go of him until life forced me to.”

20 May 2015…my last day in Dubai before leaving the following morning for South Africa…lunch in the Dubai Mall with a young student from Scotland who also lived at the Abidos Hotel, a book she had just bought for herself…her own search into Islam…her desire to mix with the locals…like Laura many years earlier. She gave it to me instead…Laura Vanessa Nunes_Laura's Voice Whispers from an Angel_Suicide from the Burj Khalifa_Leona Sykes IMG_2457.JPG

‘Suicide at the Burj Khalifa’, the book, which I have been wrestling with for nearly four years, and hard to write when I relive what Laura went through. This book contains the facts and documents relating to her death. How the government of Dubai (and I include businessmen from Dubai because they have all worked for the government at some stage of their careers), concealed her death, and after the Daily Mail expose, they denied that she had fallen to her death from the Burj Khalifa. So this book is to set the record straight.

“She fell to her death from the 14th floor of her Jumeirah Lakes Towers apartment”, part of the misinformation given by the government controlled media to the Dubai police. I am still trying to work out how my daughter’s body managed to travel 24.6 kilometres, to land outside the balcony of Amal Restaurant which is part of the Armani Hotel, on the third floor of the Burj per the Coroner’s Report issued by the government of Dubai. Laura had been staying in Room 309 Abidos Hotel Dubailand, and the Dubai police knew that.

The question remains. Why did the government of Dubai go to such extremes to cover-up Laura’s death from the Burj Khalifa? I don’t expect to receive any answers from them. I have drawn my own conclusions!
This book is about the truth…nothing more, nothing less!!!

Over the years Laura sent many links of music videos to Mubarak. These are the final two which she sent on 3 November 2014…thirteen days before her death. For you Mubarak…

17 August 2013…included in an email to Mubarak…page 216 from Laura’s Voice Whispers from an Angel…’But for now in this realm we have to part, but it’s not goodbye…Just for now and a short space of time…

25 July 2018…from wikipedia…


Within 17 months of the building’s official opening, a man described as “an Asian in his mid-30s” who worked at one of the companies in the tower, died by suicide on 10 May 2011 by jumping from the 147th floor. He fell 39 floors, landing on a deck on the 108th floor. Dubai police confirmed the act as a suicide, reporting that “[they] also came to know that the man decided to commit suicide as his company refused to grant leave.”[125]

The Daily Mail reported that on 16 November 2014, Laura Vanessa Nunes, a Portuguese national who was in Dubai on a tourist visa, fell to her death from Burj Khalifa’s “At the Top” observation deck on the 148th floor.[126] However, on 18 May 2015, Dubai police disputed the report made by the Daily Mail on this incident and said that this incident took place in Jumeirah Lakes Towers.[127] A Dubai coroner’s report stated her body was found on the third floor of the Burj Khalifa.[128] Emails obtained under the Freedom of Information act from Portugal’s embassy in the UAE also confirmed that she had committed suicide from the 148th floor of the Burj Khalifa.[129]

From Suicide at the Burj Khalifa. To Asima (name changed to protect her identity). 15 April 2014, she was back in Dubai. Speaking about Mubarak…

“And after three weeks I was here I told him I was here…but still did not see him…nor want to right now! If I am meant to be with him it will happen. But Allah brought me back here so will see and be patient meanwhile.”

19 May 2015. Part of an email I sent to Dana Moukhallati of The National, United Arab Emirates, following the lies and denial from the government of Dubai.

“Major General Khalil Ebrahim Al Mansouri is a liar. The CID know exactly where my daughter was staying at the time of her death, something they tried to conceal from me, but I eventually found out. If he can lie about a major detail like this, his statement is totally discredited.”

“As the chairman sits in his office on the 152nd floor of his blood soaked tower, he should reflect…”

27 September 2015, a message to Maktoum. Needless to say I never received a reply from him…
