Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, January 10)— Flight attendant Christine Angelica Dacera was laid to rest on Sunday, more than a week after her controversial death on New Year’s Day.

Dacera’s family and friends gathered at the Forest Lake Memorial Park in General Santos City on Sunday morning for one final view.

The 23-year-old was found unconscious in the bathtub of her hotel room in Makati City following a New Year’s Eve revelry.

TIMELINE: The Christine Dacera case

Three individuals who were with Dacera during the night were earlier detained and were slapped with rape with homicide complaints. But they were released on Wednesday following an order from the Makati City Prosecutor’s Office, which noted that more evidence is needed to establish the nature of the incident. DOJ Prosecutor General Benedicto Malcontento also labeled the initial complaints as “premature.”

The respondents tagged in the case have also denied the allegations against them.

An initial medico-legal report listed "ruptured aortic aneurysm” as Dacera’s cause of death, but her family sought a second autopsy, as they believe she did not die of natural causes. The family, however, decided to keep its results confidential for the meantime.
