A STUDENT accidentally choked him-self to death after a sex act went wrong.
A toxicology report showed no drugs and a level of alcohol just above the UK drink-drive limit in his body. Mr Harris had been out with friends the evening before he was found.
Oxfordshire coroner Darren Salter said: “Daniel Harris never spoke to him in detail. He never thought Daniel had used auto-erotica and thought he was just making a joke.”
In another statement, constable Iain Adcock from North Sydney Police said: “I am of the opinion that between midnight and 8am Daniel Harris looped a belt around his neck and tied it around the door knob. It is unlikely he tried to attempt suicide.”
Mr Salter said: “Very sadly, it is an accidental death, it seems, on the evidence.” He added: “It is a sad case, extremely sad.”
