‘Do you think my face is swollen or is it normal?’.‘I think I’m going to die, my friend. Oh Lord, help me. My friend talk to my mum and tell her I love her and my dad. I’m not going to make it. God help me.’
She then managed to send a photo of the hotel business card to her friend to raise an alarm.
Before dying, she spoke to her boyfriend for up to an hour before she slumped.
She was later found dead in her hotel room hours later.
Police believed she smuggled the drug for a £2,350 reward.
