How Kinky Gay Sex In the Park Turned Deadly

 Kinky sex gone wrong, or murder by strangulation? That's what a San Francisco jury is deliberating on today.

“He told me he liked it,” 25-year-old David Munoz Diaz (pictured) testified in a San Francisco court. “He said it excited him and he wanted to [orgasm].”

David Munoz Diaz says he met 23-year-old Freddy Canul-Arguello at a taqueria in the Castro at around 2 a.m. on June 10, 2011. They walked to nearby Buena Vista Park, a popular area for gay cruising. What happened next, the defense has argued, was a case of erotic asphyxiation gone very, very wrong.

According to Diaz, Canul-Arguello began performing oral sex on him. Then he asked to be strangled, showing Diaz exactly how he wanted it done. Diaz stood behind Canul-Arguello, choking the young man while having sex. When Canul-Arguello asked to be choked “a little bit harder,” Diaz obliged.

Then, “at a certain point, he stopped moving,” Diaz said. He tried to resuscitate him but was unsuccessful. In a flight of panic, Diaz dragged the body next to a nearby recycling bin then lit the can ablaze in an effort to “signal for help.” Then he pulled a fire alarm and called 911 about the fire before fleeing the scene.

The prosecution painted it as a case of a rage-filled, closeted Mexican man who violently turned on his sexual partner, strangling him and then lighting his body on fire in an effort to destroy the evidence, then lying to police about it.

But one of Canul-Arguello’s friends testified that he had once told her he liked being choked during sex, asking her if she thought it was weird.

How will the jury find? We're holding our collective breath.
