Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Huang Zhao was born in 1972. She was an employee of the Qiaokou District Grain Administration, and lived in the Shangzha Commune on Hanzhong Street in Qiaokou District, Wuhan City, Hubei Province.

Ms. Huang started practicing Falun Dafa in 1995. She went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa in December 1999. In 2001, She was detained in the Wuhan City No.1 Detention Center because she produced Falun Dafa truth-clarifying materials. Because of the physical torture she was subjected to, she was let out on medical parole for two years. However, police and "610 Office" personnel continued harassing her even after she returned home. Her husband Liu Ning and she had to become destitute and homeless in order to avoid being arrested at home at the end of 2002.

Around 10:30 p.m. on April 1, 2004, police officers Jin Zhiping and Xiao from the Qiaokou District Station brought police to their rented home, took away their notebook computer and printer, among other things. The police did not show their IDs or any legal documentation. Her family went many times to request the release of Ms. Huang, but the police refused to tell them where Ms. Huang was detained.

By the second day of her detainment, Ms. Huang was beaten to the point where she could not walk. Three days after her arrest, she was taken to the No.1 Branch of Wuhan City Police (the city's "610 Office"), and was brutally beaten because she refused to give in to their demands.

On the morning of April 16, police told Huang's family that Ms. Huang had died in the Wuhan City No.3 Hospital at 3 a.m. We do not know exactly what kinds of torture she endured during these 15 days. Her husband Liu Ning was also severely tortured after he was abducted, and his body was extremely weak, so the police let his mother take him home. But when he tried to visit his mother-in-law, he was arrested again. He still does not know about his wife's death.
