22. Not according to the pathologist
Consultant pathologist Dr Andrew Hitchcock, who carried out the postmortem examination, said that he found no evidence of substance abuse.

He also found no evidence of any life-threatening diseases, alcohol or drugs in Daniel's body.

He said: "What we have in this case is someone who may well have had a cardiac abnormality in the presence of the solvent.

"There is a very reasonable assumption that the passive inhalation (of the solvent in the deodorant) almost certainly led to his death."

And, as the Australian story also points out (as well as the local paper I've linked to), the boy used a lot of gels, and sprayed his clothing as well as his body.
