The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) will examine the contents of the mobile phones of the persons of interest in the death of flight attendant Christine Dacera.


“The NBI digital forensic team will now proceed to examine the data in the mobile phones of the persons of interest,” Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said on Monday.

Guevarra said “the NBI has completed its forensic examination of tissues obtained from the subject’s remains.”

“It is currently coordinating with the Makati Medical Center on related issues,” he added.

Guevarra declined to reveal the contents of the results of the forensic examination on the remains of Dacera.

“I will leave it to the NBI to release the results,” he said.

Dacera was found unconscious last Jan. 1 in the bath tub of Room 2209 of the City Garden Grand Hotel that she rented with her friends to celebrate the new year.

She was rushed to the Makati Medical Center but was declared dead on arrival.

It was also learned that her group was also mingling with a group occupants of Room 2207 of the hotel.

Last week, 12 occupants of Room 2207 appeared at the NBI at the invitation of investigators and have also subjected themselves to drug tests.

Occupants of Room 2209 have also been invited by NBI investigators for questioning.
