(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Yu Fenghua was was a music teacher at the Mohan Elementary School of Fengcheng City. She was 57 years old and practiced Falun Gong. She lived in the Aimin Residential Area, Fengcheng City, Liaoning Province.

After Yu Fenghua began to cultivate Falun Gong in 1997, she became very healthy and looked much younger than her age. A 50-year-old lady looked as if she was only in her early 40s. In 1999, Jiang's regime started the persecution of Falun Gong. Since then she had been persisting in cultivating Falun Gong and clarifying the truth and exposing the evil.

One night around 7:00 p.m. in October 2000, several policemen from Dengtiemeilu Police Station suddenly broke into Yu Fenghua's home. They ransacked her home and attempted to arrest her. She was on her way home from work and learned the news from somebody that the police were after her, so she decided to go to Dalian City to avoid the persecution that would face her at home.

One night in January 2001, Yu Fenghua was hanging a banner reading "Falun Dafa is Good" in the downtown area of Dalian. She was abducted by police who had been following her. While in detention, she refused to give up her belief in Falun Gong and firmly resisted the persecution. She also went on a hunger strike to protest. Soon she was sentenced to 8 years in prison. Several months later she was transferred to Dabei Prison in Shenyang City, where she was further persecuted. In the nearly three years of persecution, she never wavered. None of the evil's tactics could move her determination in Dafa.

On May 5, 2004, Dabei Prison informed her family to pick her up. She was on the verge of death. When her family arrived, she was carried in on a stretcher. After returning home, she passed away at around 6:00 p.m. on the night of May 10.

The details of Yu Fenghua's death are to be investigated.
