Warning: the following contains details that may be distressing.
Ms Dhu was 22 years old when she was dragged, handcuffed, from a cell at South Hedland police station in Western Australia on August 4, 2014. The Yamatji woman was limp, aside from small movements of her head and hands.
Two officers loaded her into the back of a police van, and drove to a nearby hospital. It was her third hospital visit in as many days, due to pain caused by previously broken ribs. It was also her last.
Ms Dhu, whose full name is withheld for cultural reasons, was pronounced dead by hospital doctors that afternoon.

In 2016, the Western Australian Coroner concluded that Ms Dhu had died of septicaemia and pneumonia.
The inquest heard that a police officer at South Hedland lockup thought Ms Dhu was "faking it", when she complained of feeling unwell.
"In her final hours she was unable to have the comfort of the presence of her loved ones, and was in the care of a number of police officers who disregarded her welfare and her right to humane and dignified treatment," the coroner concluded.
The reason for Ms Dhu's imprisonment?
$3,662.34 in unpaid fines.
Ms Dhu's legacy.
Ms Dhu was imprisoned under controversial WA law, which saw people who are unwilling or unable to pay a fine serve time in police or prison custody instead. Each day behind bars counted as $250 towards the amount due.
Late on Tuesday, the Western Australian Government passed legislation to change that.
Under the amended laws, most fine defaulters will be ordered to perform community service, and imprisonment will be a last resort that can only be ordered by a magistrate.
