An elderly lady in her eighties, from Jiujiang County, passed away in a state of extreme fear after witnessing the illegal arrest of her daughter. The group of thugs broke in to her home twice. The first time they forcibly removed her daughter and the second, they searched her home.

Ms. He Rongtao, a Falun Dafa practitioner in Jiujiang County, went to her hometown on February 14, 2000, to visit her mother and child. Even though her mother was 83 years old, she looked relatively young and could handle housework on her own.

The next morning, Ms. He planned to return on a 7:20 a.m. bus, however, the bus was cancelled because new soldiers needed transportation. So Ms. He was forced to return to her mother's home. Before she entered the house, she heard loud noises coming from inside. She discovered four security guards from the Township government illegally searching her mother's place.

He's mother was terrified by the thugs' violent behavior. She looked pale and was trembling. He Rongtao tried to hold her mother. However, two security guards forcibly seized her. She asked, "What is this all about? Why did you break into a private residence? Do you have a warrant? How dare you scare my mother so much!"

As it turned out, the night before, the police had found numerous Falun Dafa posters on buildings around town and flyers at different residences. They suspected He Rongtao of doing it, so they forcibly took her to the township government building. But, the police could not get her to confess to anything. They then went back to her mother's place and searched the house again. This time more people participated in the search, including police from the police substation. He's mother was extremely scared and fell ill. Not long after, her mother heard that Zhang Maoxing, a Falun Dafa practitioner in the village, had been tortured to death during detention. This news terrified her even worse. On January 11, 2001, she passed away.
