Dafa practitioner Shi Hongjie was from Wubei Town, Laixi City. The police found some Dafa truth clarifying materials when they illegally searched and ransacked his home, and took this as an excuse to brutally torture Shi and force him to reveal the origin of the materials. However, Shi Hongjie firmly resisted the persecution throughout and was eventually tortured to death. It is said that one of his ribs was broken as a result of the torture. His remains have been kept for 12 days without cremation. The details will be revealed upon further investigation.
