Flight attendant Christine Dacera died of natural causes and there was no sign she was raped, according to a latest report from the Philippine National Police (PNP) Crime Laboratory report.
“Based on the available information on hand, the manner of death is classified as natural death,” according to the PNP Crime Laboratory report, pointing to aneurysm as the cause.
“In the person of Dacera, this happened in the aorta that the continuous increase in her blood pressure within it (aorta) further weakened that defect and eventually burst,” the PNP Crime Laboratory report pointed out.
The report showed that Dacera may have partied too hard or drank too much alcohol, which taxed her physically.
“The moment there was a tear in the aorta, blood loss will occur and the patient is expected to feel various symptoms like weakness, nausea, and diaphoresis that can explain why she was feeling weird and unlike the feeling of a hangover from previous drinking sessions,” it added.
“The loss of blood due to the ruptured aorta killed her within a few hours,” it added.
Also, the PNP Crime Laboratory report ruled out homicide as the cause of Dacera’s death.
Furthermore, the report pointed out that there was no evidence that Dacera’s drink on New Year’s Eve was spiked, which could have triggered her aneurysm, as “no alcohol or recreational drugs taken the night prior to her death will cause that kind of dilatation or defect on her aorta.”
The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) is also conducting a parallel probe on Dacera’s death.
Dacera was found dead in a hotel room in the morning of January 1, 2021 by her friends. Her family earlier said initial investigation did not take into account the bodily injuries of Christine, which may indicate she was allegedly beaten up. SOVEREIGNPH
