Christine Angelica Dacera was found dead in Makati, near Manila, Philippines.
The 23-year-old flight attendant had spent New Years Eve with colleagues at the City Garden Hotel.
On January 1 around 10 a.m., after a drunken evening, one of them woke up and discovered the young woman in the bathtub.
Thinking that she was sleeping, Rommel Galida covered her with a blanket before going back to bed.
Then, several hours later, he noticed that she hadn’t moved and was turning blue. After trying unsuccessfully to revive her, he sounded the alarm.
The victim was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Bruises were found all over her body and cuts on her thighs and knees. Semen was found in the young woman’s vagina.
An autopsy will be performed and DNA samples taken.
About ten people participated in the same New Year’s Eve. The trail of gang rape is privileged, and eleven men were indicted on Monday.
