The best known forensic cases are those “Brought in Dead,” i.e., BID. Perhaps, there is need to appreciate other cases marked by reaching the hospital but dying there, i.e., “Brought in Dying.” Examples of the latter need both recognition and documentation. This was achieved in the present paper concerning members of the Igbo Ethnic Group who are domiciled in South Eastern Nigeria. It is hypothesized that there should be wider knowledge of the phenomenon of “Brought in Dying.
