A FLIGHT attendant found dead in the bathub of a posh hotel in the Philippines may have been gang raped, police suspect.
Christine Angelica Dacera, 23, had checked into the the City Garden Hotel in the city of Makati to celebrate the new year with friends.
Ms Dacera was with several colleagues at the party and one of them, Rommel Galida, woke up at around 10am and noticed her asleep in the bathtub.
Mr Galida says he covered her with a blanket before going back to sleep.
When he woke up several hours later, he found her unconscious and starting to turn blue.
Mr Galida raised the alarm and Ms Dacera was given CPR, but failed to respond.
She was rushed to hospital where doctors confirmed her death.
Investigators said they are waiting for an autopsy but confirmed that the young woman’s body did have bruises and cuts including on her thighs and knees.

According to reports, officers discovered that around 10 people attended a private party in the room the group had rented, and one of the theories they are investigating is that she might have been raped or gang-raped.
The police are also waiting for the toxicology report to see if she had taken drugs or alcohol.
The investigation continues.
