A heroin addict found dead in a disabled toilet at Oxford’s Pegasus Theatre had been there overnight, an inquest at Oxfordshire Coroner’s Court heard yesterday.

Slimane Benhalilou, a 45-year-old French immigrant, was discovered by a cleaner at the theatre on Wednesday, January 15, alongside hypodermic needles and citric acid, both used to take heroin.

Assistant coroner Nicholas Graham said CCTV footage from the theatre showed Mr Benhalilou, of Asquith Road, Rose Hill, entering the toilet the night before. He ruled Mr Benhalilou died a drug-related death.
