(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Xiao Yali used to live in Dongfa Village, Zhoujia Town, Shuangcheng City of Heilongjiang Province, China. On March 6, 2004, she died as a result of a violent forced-feeding while she was being detained at the Shuangcheng City No. 2 Detention Center. After being forcefully arrested, Ms. Xiao had to leave her twin children, a boy and a girl, behind. The boy is called Sun Ri and the girl is called Sun Yue. The young children cry for their mother every day. Currently, these two children are living with their grandparents. Ms. Xiao's husband, Sun Wancai, is in poor health and is suffering from pulmonary tuberculosis. He already owes a debt of more than 10,000 yuan due to his medical treatments

Around 4 p.m. on February 28, 2004, government official Li Yuesheng from Zhoujia Town and police officer Guo Fujun from the local public security station, together with some other people, broke into Ms. Xiao's house and ransacked it. Between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m., Zhoujia Town Judiciary Committee Secretary Gao Jinpeng, local public security station deputy director Bai, and town officials Li Yuesheng and Hu Zongshen and some other people broke into Ms. Xiao's house again, but this time they abducted Ms. Xiao from her home. Ms. Xiao was then sent to the public security station and later transferred to the Shuangcheng City No. 2 Detention Center. Around 6:40 p.m. on March 6, 2004, Ms. Xiao's family received a phone call from the detention center, asking the family to bring some money to the city emergency center where Ms. Xiao was being treated for an illness (Ms. Xiao had been very healthy; she didn't have any ailments at all before her detention)

Ten minutes later, the family received another call from the detention center, saying that the family could either go visit the emergency center that day or the next day (actually at that time, Ms. Xiao had already been tortured to death.) Over twenty family members and relatives visited the emergency center that same night; however, a certain officer refused to allow the family members see Ms. Xiao. The next day, the family and relatives learned that Ms. Xiao was already dead and they saw her body. There was an oval shaped scar on Ms. Xiao's forehead, the right side of Ms. Xiao's chest was swollen, both her hands were twisted and had turned purple, and her mouth was swollen as well. It was such a horrible and upsetting sight! When some public security staff requested that Ms. Xiao be cremated immediately (without receiving a memorial service), all the family members and relatives immediately protested strongly against such inhuman treatment. On March 13, 2004, Ms. Xiao was cremated against the family's will. Later on, it was learned from an inside source at the detention center that the primary culprit who was directly involved in Ms. Xiao's death was a physician called Wang Shiyuan from the No. 3 Clinical Center of Shuangcheng City People's Hospital.

After Ms. Xiao was tortured to death, the whole family was devastated. Not only did Ms. Xiao's family feel great sorrow, but her neighbors also mourned for her. They wept for having lost such a good person.
