This poster reports a fatal overdose case involving Bromo-Dragonfly. Bromo-Dragonfly is a common name for 1-(8-bromobenzo[1,2-b; 4,5-b´]difuran-4-yl)-2-aminopropane. Structurally, it is closely related to phenylethylamines like 2C-B and DOB. Bromo-Dragonfly is considered an extremely potent hallucinogen, only slightly less potent than LSD. In the present case from Denmark an 18-year-old woman was found dead one morning in October 2007. The previous evening she and her boyfriend had both ingested a hallucinogen LSD-like liquid. A medico-legal autopsy was performed on the deceased. Liver, blood, urine and vitreous humour were submitted for toxicological examination. Furthermore a bottle found next to the deceased containing a colorless liquid was subjected to analysis.
