(Clearwisdom.net) On November 3, 2005, 610 Office agents illegally arrested Falun Dafa practitioner Ms. Li Xiumei who lived in Shenwang Village, Qingzhou City, Shandong Province. She was held at a "legal education class" that is in fact a brainwashing center. 610 Office agents Liu Rongyou, former Falun Gong practitioner Wang Xingyuan and others choked her to death, viciously claiming to "catch the evil spirit" in Li Xiumei. It is learned that Li Xiumei's body was covered with numerous wounds, and the wounds on her neck indicate that she was choked. The details of Ms. Li's death require further investigation, but this is what we know so far.

610 Office agent Liu Rongyou used to be Qingzhou City Fund Association Party Committee secretary in Shandong Province. He once studied Falun Gong, with a strong attachment to fame and personal interest. He showed great enthusiasm, but in fact he pursued recognition from others. Falun Gong practitioners cautioned him on many occasions, but he persisted in his ways. In 2000, Liu was brainwashed at the Wangcun Labor Camp in Zibo, Shandong Province. He joined the 610 Office soon afterwards and fanatically persecuted Falun Gong practitioners.

In order to show off his "skills" in "transforming" practitioners, Liu Rongyou spread lies at many labor camps to deceive the practitioners. He prevented practitioners from sleeping, poured cold water on them, tied them up and beat them, to force them to give up Dafa practice. His most malicious torture method was to randomly accuse someone of being possessed by evil spirits and snakes. By claiming to "catch the evil" he would hold down Falun Gong practitioners who had already been tortured for many days and did not have the strength to resist him. He would push them and hold them on a bed or on the floor and would grope, pinch and jab the practitioners' sensitive body parts. He screamed, "Sooner or later, someone will have to die!"

Liu Rongyou forced Wang Xingyuan and his wife Wang Jianping from Qingzhou City to give up Dafa practice. Following that, the couple aided Liu Rongyou and others from the 610 Office to persecute practitioners. Those they persecuted include Wang Xingyuan's mother Li Wenshu, his brother Wang Xingjia and his brother's wife Li Xiumei. The aides constantly communicated with Liu Rongyou while brainwashing the practitioners.

In order to force his own mother Li Wenshu to give up her Dafa practice, Wang Xingyuan didn't let her eat and forced her to work in the field in the rain, while his wife and he watched her from under an umbrella. They beat and cursed the old woman if she didn't do things to their satisfaction. They also put a dunce hat on her head and a placard around her neck and paraded her through the streets to humiliate her. They personally sent her to a brainwashing class. Ms. Li Wenshu, who was 76 years old, went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa and was illegally detained. She held a hunger strike to protest the persecution and was only released when she was at the brink of death.

On November 3, 2005, Wang Xingyuan again reported his mother Li Wenshu, his brother Wang Xingjia and his sister-in-law Li Xiumei. He led 610 Office agents as they broke into the home of Wang Xingjia and took Dafa books and materials, DVD player(s), and a motorcycle, among other things, and arrested the three practitioners. Wang Xingjia's wife and mother were sent to a brainwashing class. Wang Xingjia was sentenced to forced labor.

Around December 2005, Wang Xingyuan, his wife and a 38-year-old woman named Cui Chunfeng from Nanzhang Village in Heguan Town, as well as Liu Rongyou and others tried to brainwash practitioner Li Xiumei. She died soon afterwards.

According to an internal police source, she was choked to death after being accused of being possessed with evil spirits. The police also revealed the government plans to deal with her death in a low-key manner in order to protect the 610 Office and Liu Rongyou. Wang Xingyuan and several others are being held at Qingzhou City Detention Center and are charged with "spreading superstition."

Many Falun Gong practitioners tortured by Liu Rongyou say that Liu likes to abuse people by claiming they are possessed by evil spirits. He often grabs and squeezes practitioners' necks, almost suffocating them. He also sexually assaults female practitioners.

Late at night one could often hear heart-wrenching screams at the 610 Office brainwashing class on the second floor of Longshan Hotel on Hongguang Road, Qingzhou City. This class has been moved to a more discrete location on Ouyuan Street. After the torture, some practitioners lost feeling in certain body parts for months at a time. Some practitioners' faces were severely distorted and their abdomens ulcerated so severely that hospitals refused to accept them. Some practitioners were close to a nervous breakdown; they experienced full-body edema and they could barely walk upright. Some practitioners' feet were jabbed with chopsticks and keys until they bleed profusely; other practitioners' shirts were soaked with blood oozing from their backs.

Evildoer Liu Rongyou assists the perpetrators in the persecution against Falun Gong. He lies to both the government and Falun Gong practitioners. On the one hand, he tells the Communist Party and the 610 Office agitators that he has completely broken away from Falun Gong and viciously slanders Falun Gong and Master Li Hongzhi; on the other hand, he tells people during different public events that he still practices Falun Gong and tells people he is cultivating toward high levels, to confuse Falun Gong practitioners and non-practitioners. He does everything possible to defame Falun Gong.

In the past few years, Liu Rongyou has followed the Communist regime's genocidal policy in persecuting Falun Gong. He unscrupulously attacks female Falun Gong practitioners sexually and even summarized some "torture tips." He is proud of his crimes and brags, "Look, I've done a great job; this and that place have invited me [to work with them]." Liu Rongyou is still committing crimes, torturing people physically and tormenting them mentally and poisoning people's minds.
