NBI establishes identities of Dacera’s guests billeted in other room
MANILA, Philippines — The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) already knows the identities of flight attendant Christine Dacera’s guests in room 2207 on the night that she was found dead at a hotel in Makati.
“I think they have been invited to appear at the NBI to provide any relevant information,” Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said Monday.
He said the NBI also knows the name of the person who registered at the reception.
Dacera celebrated New Year with her friends at a hotel in Makati. She was found unconscious in a dry bathtub inside room 2209. Her friends took her to the Makati Medical Center where she was declared dead on arrival.
Her friends from room 2209 were among the respondents in the complaint for rape with homicide filed by the police. The respondents, however, revealed that there are also friends of Dacera in another room–2207.
“We have very encouraging leads,” NBI Deputy Director Ferdinand Lavin said.
“I rest assure the public that we have very encouraging leads. We have very encouraging pieces of evidence. Believe me, believe me makikita dito kung may lapses doon sa una [you can see here if there are lapses],” Lavin told reporters.
Guevarra said the NBI will come up with the forensic results in less than a week.
