(Clearwisdom.net) Mr. Xie Wenbi, in his fifties, and his mother Mrs. Li, who was over 80 years old, lived in Gujingwan Village, Jixiang Town in Pengxi County, Suining City, Sichuan Province. Both became Falun Dafa practitioners in 1998.

In 2001 someone in the same village reported Wenbi and his sister-in-law, who is also a practitioner. Police from the county "610 Office" and the local police station arrested them. Wenbi's sister-in-law escaped from the detention center with her strong righteous thoughts and her whereabouts remain unknown. Wenbi was unconstitutionally detained and persecuted at the Pengxi County Detention Center. He was released after six months. His health was extremely poor after he got home, but the police continued to harass him for a long time.

The police also threatened Wenbi's mother, demanding that she tell them where her daughter-in-law was. The older woman was very frightened and upset. She died in March 2003. In July 2004 Wenbi also died from the long-term police harassment and persecution.
