Dacera kin file raps against PNP medicolegal officer

The family of deceased flight attendant Christine Angelica Dacera has filed an administrative complaint against a medicolegal officer of the Southern Police District for allegedly bungling the investigation of her death at a New Year’s party with several male friends at a Makati City hotel.

Dacera’s parents, Sharon and Jose Nestor, asked the Internal Affairs Service of the Philippine National Police to dismiss Police Major Michael Nick Sarmiento from the service for gross negligence and gross incompetence in preparing his medicolegal report in Dacera’s certificate of death.

In their complaint, the Daceras said Sarmiento ordered the embalming of Christine’s body without her family’s consent and without first conducting a medicolegal examination, or taking important forensic samples.

The Daceras also claimed Sarmiento concluded Christine died of a ruptured aortic aneurysm without considering other conditions on her body, such as cuts and bruises.
