The mother of Christine Angelica Dacera, the flight attendant found dead at a luxury hotel on New Year's Day, has slammed the autopsy report that claims she wasn't raped. Sharon, according to The US Sun, said she "cannot accept" the finding with the claim as she insisted her daughter was sexually assaulted. Christine's body was found in a bathtub of the City Garden Hotel in Makati, the Philippines.

Initially, the police suspected foul play. They provisionally charged 11 men who she partied with although the autopsy reads the 23-year-old died due to a "ruptured aortic aneurysm." Recent developments see her mother, Sharon lash out at the report. Talking on Headstart, she said, " For me, my daughter was raped."

"If you see the body of Christine, if you are the mother you will surely feel the pain suffered by Christine from them but my daughter cannot speak anymore because she died," she added. The footage of Christine kissing a man was also seen hours before her death. She was found dead the following day with "sperm and lacerations" on her body. There were also bruises and scratches that led the police to believe she was raped. Rommel Galido, one of the people partying with her, said someone had added something to his drink.

Philippine National Police Chief Director Debold Sinas said that apart from Galida, 29, John Pascual Dela Serna III, 27, and John Paul Reyes Halili, 25, have also been taken into police custody. According to Heavy, Galida said that he woke up around 10 am and found Dacera asleep in the bathtub.

Galida said he put a blanket over her and returned to bed but when he woke up a few hours later, she was unconscious and turning blue. He then reportedly called for help and coworkers tried to revive Dacera. However, she was declared dead after being rushed to the hospital.

The Dacera family is now asking for the Philippine National Police’s medico-legal officer to be fired for reportedly bungling the autopsy. According to their lawyer, Brick Reyes, they believed Christine was drugged and abused before her death. “We know that it was quite impossible (to get proper evidence) considering that there have already been some compromises and the body has shown signs of deterioration but we were not discouraged by that,” he said in an interview on Saturday night.

Recent updates also include an NBI notification on Tuesday that her urine samples were successfully taken and would help in aiding the forensic team. Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said: "The results of the laboratory examination may come out in a few days."
