Ms. Chen Xiurong, in her 60s, lived in Yaozhanzhuang Village, Beigang Town, Haigang District, Qinhuangdao City, Hebei Province. She began practicing Falun Dafa in 1996 and benefited both mentally and spiritually. She went to Beijing to clarify the truth in 2000, but she was injured as a result of being brutally beaten by a government employee. She fainted by the Central Appeals Office and spectators took her to a hospital. She found her relatives in Beijing after coming to.

After that, local police officer Zhou Haitao often harassed her and ransacked her home. They threatened her, took her Falun Dafa books, and took her into custody at the local police station. Her family feared persecution, so they helped the police to restrict her personal freedom. She had symptoms of a stroke in 2004 and died in August 2007 at the age of 67.
