A party-loving sex slave priest accused of embezzling $1 million (£775k) from his church on a bondage "master" so he could drink his urine has died of alcohol abuse.

The disgraced Reverend Peter Miqueli, 57, was found dead at his New Jersey home in July, four years after he resigned from his role when parishioners sued him for stealing their money.

They claimed he used their donations to pay his BDSM master, Keith Crist, for $1000 (£749)-a-pop sordid romps.

The lawsuit was not resolved but he was cleared of wrongdoing by The Bronx District Attorney’s Office.

Churchgoers claimed Miqueli blew $60,000 (£44,949) of the stolen funds on ­"illicit and prescription drugs".

He also allegedly used the cash to buy his $264,000 (£198k) home and to pay Crist's rent for his apartment.

In a civil suit, it was revealed that the sex loving master would force Father Maqueli to drink his urine.

The priest stepped down and was suspended by the Archdiocese of New York three years later.

New York Daily News reported that the results of the disgraced clergyman’s autopsy revealed he died of arrhythmia due to occlusive coronary heart disease associated with severe cardiomyopathy.

The condition is often caused by excessive drinking.

Coroners also noted a "massive liver steatosis consistent with chronic alcohol abuse," the Daily Mail reported.

Filed in 2015, the lawsuit against Miqueli claimed that he used stolen cash – some of which was donated for a new church organ – to fund his sex sessions and go on holidays to Europe.

He is said to have paid Crist to go to his house in New Jersey for sessions.

In text messages to his ex-girlfriend, Crist called the priest a "clueless a**hole" and said he was paying his rent.

He said he wanted to be publicly humiliated by him, laughed at and degraded.

It's unclear if Miqueli was living with anyone when he died.
