A man whose death was initially thought to have been the result of an extreme sexual encounter has now been ruled as a homicide.

Paul Dawson, 41, was found dead in a hotel room in New York last summer and his death was initially thought to have been caused by extreme sex gone wrong after his head was wrapped in plastic.

However, now police have reclassified the New Jersey resident's death as murder, caused by 'acute methamphetamine intoxication', according to the New York Daily News.

The paper quotes police sources who now believe that one or both of the men involved in the threesome gave Dawson methamphetamines and GHB to enhance the sexual experience.

They also spoke to one of Dawson's relatives who welcomed the new investigation, saying that Dawson was always anti drugs.

The two men who were with Dawson in the hotel room, who were interviewed by police in the wake of his death, may now face charges.
