British actress Mya-Lecia Naylor, who died at the age of 16 earlier this year, hanged herself and unintentionally took her own life, according to reports.

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.

The article goes on to state the following:

“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.
