Dacera’s autopsy report lacks ‘many’ details – forensic pathologist

A forensic pathologist said Thursday the report prepared by the police on Christine could not answer a lot of questions concerning the flight attendant’s death.

“Marami (many)… because that’s exactly standard forensic autopsy report,” Dr. Raquel Fortun said when asked if anything is lacking on the medic-legal report.

When asked for an example of other details she was looking for in the report, Fortun cited Christine’s contusion, “lesion sa back of one hand.”

“Contusion implies bruise, bugbog so sugat ‘yan. However, doon sa alleged contusion na ’to, mayroon daw needle puncture mark so ano ibig sabihin nito? Are you telling me that the hemorrhage you saw here is an attempt to inject something or insert an IV line? So it’s not clear to me. There are many things I’m not sure,” she added.

Earlier, Philippine National Police insisted that the victim was raped before she died.

Dacera’s autopsy report lacks ‘many’ details – forensic pathologist

This is what PNP chief Police Gen. Debold Sinas said at a briefing on Wednesday, amid questions on Christine’s real cause of death.

“I think there’s really rape. ‘Yung babae, with bruises, confirmed lacerations tapos may fluid sa private parts niya… It really happened,” said Sinas.

“Ipagpalagay na nating nalasing ‘yung babae… Ay wala namang karapatan ang isang lalaki na makipag-sex sa babae [nang walang pahintulot].”

However, Dacera’s initial autopsy report stated that she died of a “ruptured aortic aneurysm.”

Authorities were also investigating if the flight was drugged before she was raped because one of the persons being involved in the case said Christine told him that she thinks someone might have put something in her drink because she felt different.

The family and authorities are still waiting for the further results of the second autopsy done on Dacera’s remains.
