A Spanish porn actor is being investigated on suspicion of manslaughter after a photographer died during a toad-venom ritual, police say. Nacho Vidal, 46, and two others were briefly detained last Friday over the death. Spanish police said the photographer died after inhaling the poison of an endangered North American toad. The “mystic ritual” reportedly took place at Mr Vidal’s home near the southern city of Valencia last July. A lawyer for Mr Vidal said his client “considers himself to be innocent”, describing the death as an unfortunate accident.
