CCTV footage from room 2207, another room visited by flight attendant Christine Dacera was released a few hours before she was found dead in the bathtub of the City Garden Grand Hotel in Makati on January 1, 2020.

According to hotel manager John Paul Halili, he arranged the accommodation for the two groups.
So according to the police source, it is impossible that Dacera’s group did not know the people in room 2209 in room 2207. Because of this, the people in room 2207 are also invited to issue their statement especially and their names are obtained by the National Bureau of Investigation.
JP Dela Cerna, another member of the group, allegedly introduced Halili to the people in room 2207. Contrary to the previous statement of some of Dacera’s friends that they did not see any party drug on the occasion.
“Wala akong nakikitang isang matinding dahilan para gawin ng mga tao sa [Room] 2209 yung foul play na binibintang nila sa amin or binibintang nilang nangyari kay Tin. Dahil lahat ng tao dun isa lang ang gustong mangyari, kundi magsaya,” said JP Dela Serna.
Dela Cerna mentioned in his sworn statement that their companion named Mark Anthony Rosales allegedly carried a powder drug but the other one they were with, Louie De Lima, was the only one to receive it.
