A British woman who was found dead in an Australian skating dance club may have been drinking her drink, a research that is being heard today.
Stacey Tierney, 29, who died of a drug overdose, appeared to be partially dressed on a sofa with tests showing that she had traces of MDMA, cocaine and heroin in her system.
An investigation into her death found that her boss found her body 30 hours after she was last seen, but two men Joseph Berhe and Tomas Mesfun were in the room with her all the time, even when she fainted and died later.
During the hearing at the Stockport Coroner's Court, the former fitness instructor heard the drugs at a staff party at the Gentleman's Dreams Club in Melbourne, but was then left in the barmanager's office.
The police were warned of the tragedy only more than a day after the party began when club owner Steve Kyriacou arrived for his work and discovered it.
Berhe and Mesfun, who were found in the same room as Miss Tierney, were interrogated by the police during death but released without charge.

The hearing was told Miss Tierney (shown left and right) had moved to Victoria in Australia after her friend got a technical job
When paramedics were present on December 19, 2016, one of the men heard from another man: & # 39; I think we are good here. & # 39;
The police discovered that the office was cleaned up & # 39; before agents arrived.
In a survey in Stockport, the Miss Tierney family accused the members of the group that & # 39; inhumaan & # 39; as a coroner, an open verdict.
The inquest heard that a fellow suspect had sent text messages saying: "This girl has fainted and I can not leave her; it scares me. & # 39;
Stacey's mother, Michelle Frost, from Withington, Manchester, cried when she said: "I do not think we'll ever get the answers we want because I do not think they're telling the truth.
No one tried to help her, They did not pick up the phone for an ambulance and I do not know why.

Timeline of the tragedy: how the body of Stacey Tierney was found two days after she arrived for her work
Saturday, December 17, 2016:
8.30 pm: Miss Tierney starts her service at the club in the neighborhood.
She is seen on CCTV that works normally and does not seem to be overly drunk & # 39 ;.
3.41u: After work, in the early hours of the next day, Miss Tierny is seen by entering the executive offices for an after party. Six people entered the office.
Some time later: another woman, the bar manager and his friend left, CCTV unveiled. But Miss Tierney stayed with Berhe and Mesfun.
12:30 pm, Sunday 18 December: a text message is sent to the bar manager with the announcement: "This girl has fainted and I can not leave her behind. She scares me. & # 39;
5.30 am: A second message read: & # 39; I no longer know what to do. & # 39;
Miss Tierney dies around this time (showing pathology reports).
11.43 am, Monday, December 19: Steve Kyriacou, arrived to find Berhe and Mesfun along with the lifeless body of Miss Tierney on a sofa and emergency services were called.
& # 39; To see someone die like that. They have reasons, but what are these reasons?
& # 39; That's what I feel; it stinks, it is lies, how can a person not do something to help someone else.
It was a good person and I feel that there has been an injustice somewhere, but I do not think that I will ever find the truth. & # 39;
The hearing was told Miss Tierney had moved to Victoria in Australia after her boyfriend got a technical job.
She traveled through Australia and when her study visa was accepted in November 2016, she started working at Dreams Gentleman & # 39; s Club.
The court investigation found that she had told friends that she was not fun & # 39; was to work at the club, but she was trying to save to fund her studies and "the money was good."
She arrived at the club at 17.20 on 17 December and worked until the early hours of the morning.
After all customers had left the building at four o'clock in the morning, the staff were held at the manager's office at the after-party.
Det Supt Estelle Matheson, of the Greater Manchester Police, said: "It is almost impossible to determine what happened in that room.
& # 39; That room was the only place where there were no CCTV images. Once she has disappeared into that room, she is no longer seen alive.
& # 39; The accounts that were given were inconsistent, some aspects were similar, but there were many inconsistencies with the given accounts. & # 39;

The investigation was told that a pathologist had given an estimated time of death of 5:30 on December 18, but the police were not warned until about noon on December 19.
Det Matheson added: & # 39; Just after 5.30 am one of the main suspects informed the manager at 5.34 am and said: & # 39; I do not know what to do, she does not respond. & # 39;

Alison Mutch, senior coroner of South Manchester, filed an open verdict on the death of Miss Tierney, and said there are still & # 39; unanswered questions & # 39; were dead around her
& # 39; He aroused concerns about her. They did not take any steps to help her. That text suggests that she was possibly dead at 5.30 am or very sick.
& # 39; Another message was sent to the owner with the message & # 39; I no longer know what to do & # 39 ;.
She added that no evidence or drugs were injected, but officers could not exclude that her drink had been enriched.
Stacey's stepfather David Frost said: "I am struggling to reason why they have never answered questions.
& # 39; Why were there no answers to those questions? Just as when they left the room when the ambulance arrived, a boy said to another: "I think we're good here."
& # 39; It is hard to really believe. We thought it was basic police work and that the police worked together in different countries.
& # 39; We have found it difficult not to have the answer to our questions and we have remained stunned. & # 39;
Police said no evidence or drugs were injected into Miss Tierney, but agents could not exclude that her drink had been enriched
