Brit dancer, 29, lay dead for 31 HOURS on strip club sofa after taking cocktail of drugs

THE BODY of a British dancer who died abroad from a cocktail of alcohol, MDMA, cocaine, and heroin, was left for 31 hours after neither of the men present called an ambulance or tried to assist her.

Stacey Tierney, 29, was found dead on a sofa after overdosing following an 'after-party' at the strip bar at the Dream's Gentlemen's Club in Melbourne, Australia.

The Brit fitness instructor started to work at the club in November 2016. Although she did not like the work the money was good and she had gained a study visa to save up to pay for a nursing studies course.

After she had finished working for the day, Stacey had joined one of the club's VIP lounges with two men, where they held an 'after-party'.

This was the only part of the club not covered by CCTV.

In November 2018, a coroner ruled drug toxicity from the cocktail of drugs had killed the young woman, two days before Christmas.

Alison Mutch, senior coroner for South Manchester, at the time recorded an open verdict into Stacey's death, saying there were still "unanswered questions" about what happened for a long period of time shortly before her death.

A Victorian Gambling and Casino Control Commission inquiry yesterday, however, was told Stacey's body had been left for 31 hours after spending the evening in the private room with two men, Joseph Berhe and Tomas Mesfun, and dying from the overdose.

During the 2018 coroner hearing, Stacey's tearful mother and other family members demanded to know why no help was called.

"They didn't bother to help her," Mum Michelle Frost said.

"They didn't phone for an ambulance. She was a good person. I feel there's been an injustice somewhere.

"Why would you watch somebody die?"

David Frost, Stacey's stepfather said the tragic case had left the family "baffled".

"Surely they are hiding something?" he asked, referring to the two men and the club management.

More recently, owner Salvatore Aparo has been defending his bar after the exotic dancer's tragic death as there is an inquest into his suitability to hold a liquor licence.

The Commission inquiry was also told there was a culture of staff drinking at the club on their days off.

Aparo said: "We did not have a rule about upper management not being able to come in on their night off."

He also informed the inquiry that he let managers run the club while he concentrated on another business, reports the Herald Sun.

But Aparo has now claimed that although he was a "hands-off" manager at the time but is now a hand-on owner who runs the club with his fiancee.

He was running a construction business and delegated the running of Dreams Gentlemen's Club to others, while he visited a few times a week.

Aparo added that Stacey's tragic death had damaged the business' reputation and he said that while he accepted "a lot of responsibility", it could only go so far.

When the owner was asked if he put his trust in the wrong people he said "we all learn by our mistakes".

He denied the club operated after hours and outside its licensing hours, adding that he ran "a very respectable business".

Mr Aparo was questioned about the manager's lounge where Ms Tierney was found dead.

He said it was his private room when he attended the club. The hearing heard that managers had access to it and 24-hour access to the club.

The Gambling and Casino Control Commission will do an onsite inspection at the club next week and deliver its finding on the liquor license in June.
