Falun Dafa practitioner Wei Zaixin, male, 63 years old, was a senior engineer at the School of Advanced Technological Studies in Fushun City, Liaoning Province. On February 7, 2002, he went to the home of a fellow practitioner where he was abducted, beaten, and cruelly tortured by the police from Section One of the Police Department of Fushun City, Liaoning Province. Police from the Liangzhan Street Police Station were also present to help extort a confession from him. After being tortured for the entire night, he was sent to the intensive control team in Wujiabao Forced Labor Camp. Because of Wei's firm steadfast commitment to Falun Dafa, Wujiabao Forced Labor Camp officials forbade Wei Zaixin's family members from visiting Wei or sending him clothes or other items.

In June 2002, Wei Zaixin was sent to the No.2 Detention Center in Shizilou, Jiangjun District by the Jiangjun Police Station in Fushun City to await his sentence. While Wei was detained there, the police in the detention center instigated criminal inmates to inhumanly abuse him. In July, the Police Department sent Wei Zaixin, who was on the verge of death due to torture, to the city hospital and asked his family members to pick him up. On November 15, 2002, because Wei Zaixin was so seriously injured from the torture by the police, he failed to respond to any medical treatment, and passed away, suffering a wrongful death.
