Hi All,

Wondering what you think about the latest horrifying case of violence against a young and perhaps naive Filipina, PAL Express flight attendant Christine Dacera.

Philippine Airlines subsidiary PAL Express on Tuesday, January 5, called for justice for its flight attendant Christine Dacera, as it mourned the death of the airline worker who was found dead in Makati City on New Year's Day.

PAL Express said in a statement on Tuesday that it would extend full support to Dacera's family.

"We are extending full support to the flight attendant's family at this most difficult time. Our desire is for the truth to come out in the interest of justice," PAL Express said.

The airline said Dacera "was an upstanding and professional PAL Express crew member who will be sorely missed by her colleagues and friends."

The Philippine National Police announced on Monday, January 4, that it had solved the rape-slay case.

Three suspects were arrested and charged with rape with homicide, while 9 other suspects were still at-large.

Internet users called for the "protection of drunk girls" in the wake of Dacera's death, as they condemned rape and victim-blaming. – Rappler.com

I read a report on this - apparently the 11 suspects are a mix of gay and bisexual.

Somebody on social media says she died with aneurisma and all the men partying with her in the hotel room were gay.

i find it amazing that the police send every male is automatically going to be charged.. before they have done any forensic testing, DNA matching, evidence gathering, statement taking etc or any of the normal things one would expect from a crime scene.

Its the equivalent of a guy being murdered at a football match and 100,000 spectators being arrested " because they were there"

 

Its that or just very bad journalistic reporting which is also happens here regularly. Nothing like getting the facts straight !

Solved but the suspects are missing.. Im not sure how that works .......

They have detained 3 so I suppose that covers it in terms of their definition of solved.  Some definition they use - basically they could detain any Tom, Dick or Harry and call the case solved.

I think the local police is keen to show "progress" and what better than making some names? :dance:

The family of alleged rape-slay victim Christine Dacera refuted the earlier findings of the Scene of the Crime Operatives (SOCO) that the 23-year-old flight attendant died of aneurysm.

Atty. Brick Reyes, spokesperson of the Dacera family, bared he could not believe it when he saw Christine’s death certificate.

“When we saw the certificate of death, we took photographs of Christine's injuries to show that 'what kind of autopsy is this? Why did you not specify the other injuries?'” Reyes said in a press conference on Tuesday.

“That’s why it’s important to wait for the other medico legal report so we can exactly determine what were the findings. We disagree with the findings of the SOCO. We have conducted a separate autopsy and medico legal examination,” Reyes added. | via Ralph Villanueva

The police had also reported that semen had been found inside her, and that there were injuries to her sexual parts....so, perhaps the guys there weren't all gay. 

Anyway, the whole thing sounds pretty horrific (imagine it was YOUR daughter), so let's hope the truth will out, and the alleged offenders be brought to justice.

I believe the irresponsible (?) hotel is also being investigated for breaking the rules applicable to government-approved quarantine establishments . In other words...hardly the place to be holding a private party of world travellers. :rolleyes:

I wonder if a toxicology report was done to see if there were any 'date rape' drugs used.
