The mother of late flight attendant Christine Dacera insisted Tuesday that her daughter was raped even though the initial autopsy report showed that the 23-year-old died of aneurysm.
Sharon Dacera said she could not accept the findings of the initial autopsy report because it did not include details on the bruises she saw on her daughter's body.
"Para sa akin, ni-rape ang anak ko," Dacera said in an interview on ANC."'Pag nakita mo yung katawan ni Christine, if you are the mother, you will surely feel the pain suffered by Christine from them. My daughter cannot speak anymore because she died."
MORE ON DACERA CASE:
The 23-year-old was found lifeless in her hotel room bathtub on New Year's Day after a night of partying. Dacera family lawyer Brick Reyes earlier said the family believes she was drugged before she was found dead.
Asked if she has seen the full CCTV footage of the night before Christine's death, Sharon admitted that she had not and appealed to the City Garden Grand Hotel to release a full and unedited copy.
An initial autopsy on Christine's remains showed that she died of aneurysm, which her mother disputes, saying the late flight attendant was "healthy."
"'Di ko to tanggap itong autopsy na ginawa nila," Dacera said.
Rommel Galido, a friend of Christine, said last week that Christine told him that she believed a certain "Mark" spiked her drink during the party. A Philippine National Police statement last Jan. 4 also identified a certain Mark Anthony Rosales as among Dacera's companions at the hotel.
Dacera' mother said Galido could have asked the hotel for help when Christine already told them that she was not feeling well.
"Sana nung nalaman nila nagkasakit-sakit ang ulo nga anak ko, mayroon naman clinic siguro ang hotel para magpatawag siya sa information desk...Bakit di niya ginawa?" she said.
"Talagang krimen, patay na anak ko. Talagang may krimen."
Results of a second autopsy done on Christine's embalmed body are expected to come out soon.
