On September 28, 2002, Hu Hongyue and another practitioner disappeared mysteriously near Funanhe River in Chengdu City. In November 2002, her work unit received a notice from the Public Security saying that Hu Hongyue had died. The policemen only showed a picture of Hu and told her family that she "died from starvation." On November 19, 2002, the police cremated her body without the consent of her family. In fact, neither her family members nor her coworkers were allowed to see her body for the last time.
The death of Hu Hongyue is another crime that Jiang's political gang has committed against Dafa practitioners. The details of her death are yet to be investigated.
