Dr. Raquel Fortun, an expert forensic pathologist, was interviewed by Zyann Ambrosio of ABS-CBN and she discussed the circumstances on the Dacera case including the autopsy report that has been circulating.
In the ABS-CBN report, it showed a copy of the said autopsy as well.
According to Fortun, Dacera was too young to suffer from a ruptured aortic aneúrysm or when a vein in the heart would burst, saying that that cause of this is often high blood pressure, of which at 23 years old, is considered too young.
The forensic pathologist also said that it is hard to connect party drúgs and thoracic aneúrysm, which was the cited cause of death on the autopsy.
Regarding toxicology, "Best sana kung kinunan ng blood at urine although sabi dito walang laman."
Fortun said that based on the autopsy report, there were no signs of rape.
She then added a statement, which was narrated like a piece of advice.
"Why not just zoom in on the possibility that the drúgs, whatever it was, individually or in combination caused death, intoxication of something. Alcohol is a drúg."
Regarding the alleged semen found, she said that it is inconclusive of rape.
"Kung sinasabing may nakitang spermatozoa, malabong ma-conclude na rape agad ito."
Christine Dacera was found lifeless in a hotel in Makati City after the New Year’s Eve. She reportedly attended a private party with her colleagues and “friends of friends.” Investigators are looking into the possibility that the woman was abused by more than 10 people.
The photo of PAL flight attendant Christine Angelica Dacera which was the one she uploaded last on her Instagram account has gone viral. The caption on the photo of Christine was "Last flight for this one helluva year." The upload was made before the news of the 23-year-old's demise broke.
Friends of Christine Dacera gave an interview to ABS-CBN and recounted how good their friend really was. One of her friends, Andrei Barretto, candidly recalled his last conversation with Christine on New Year's Eve on IG. Andrei said that he replied to her story and that while he told Christine that he was at home, she told him that she booked a room with friends. When Andrei told her, baka "mapano ka dyan," she replied that it's negative because her companions were "mas babae pa" than her.
