However, according to the latest reports, Mya-Lecia unintentionally took her own life. The assistant coroner in the case, Toby Watkin, said Naylor’s death was by “misadventure,” and was not intentional, per the Daily Mail and E! News.

“Death by misadventure indicates although the deceased deliberately carried out the acts, they did not intend to bring about their death,” Watkin said, adding that Naylor died at the hospital from “fatal pressure to her neck. I find she did not intend to end her own life,” stated Watkin.

The actress’ father, Martin Naylor, told the South London Coroner’s Court his daughter was “stressed about her exams” and had “not been her normal self.”

“She knew she needed to get on with her revision and she had plans scheduled out for her revision,” he added.

It was also said that before Naylor’s death, she had been grounded by her parents after they received a phone call from her school that her grades were slipping,” the outlet said. Naylor was also told she couldn’t attend a party with friends, and had to stay home.

“I honestly believe she was just making some sort of point,” Naylor’s father told the Coroner’s Court. “I genuinely believe she did not mean to do it. It was a silly spur of the moment thing. She clearly had plans for the future.”
