Ms. Sun Min Died in Police Custody, Police Fabricate Postmortem Examination Coverup (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioners Mr. Wu Yang, also named Wu Zhijun, from Chifeng City, Inner Mongolia, along with his wife Ms. Sun Min, went to Beijing to avoid being harassed and persecuted by their local Chinese Communist Party officials. They lived at Jiaomenxili in the Fengtai District.
At around 9:00 a.m. on April 22, 2009, Mr. Wu Yang was distributing Shen Yun Performing Arts DVDs at a "Shoe City" store in Xuanwu District, Beijing City. He was reported, and taken to the Niujie District Police Station by local security guards. Two days later, Mr. Wu Yang and Ms. Sun Min's families in Chifeng realized that the couple was missing. They went to various police departments in Beijing looking for them.
On April 28, 2009, the Fengtai Police Department sent Ms. Sun Min's family a "Death Notice" which stated, "At around 1:30 a.m. on April 23, 2009, Sun Min was found dead as a result of falling from a height at the south side of the No. 19 Building at Chenxinyuan Residential Area, Jiaomenxili, Fengtai District, Beijing City."
The Fengtai Police Department claimed it asked the Beijing Shengtang Medico-Legal Appraisal Institute to do the postmortem identification, but the postmortem examination report was dated April 22, and the institute claims they were asked to do only a body examination.
An employee of the Beijing Shengtang Medico-Legal Appraisal Institute, who wishes to remain anonymous, said, "The body shows that death was not caused by falling from a five-story building. The characteristics of a body that has fallen from a high building are not like this." Even a technician said, "Based on our knowledge she did not die from falling."
On May 6, the couple's families met with Wang Zengbin, the contact person listed on the death notification. According to Wang, Ms. Sun Min was in custody of the police from the Xuanwu District before she died. After Ms. Sun's death, he went to the site of death in the capacity of a local police officer. He said that the police from the Xuanwu District went to the house where Mr. Wu Yang and Ms. Sun Min were staying at around 10:00 or 11:00 p.m. on April 22. When they knocked on the door Ms. Sun opened the door, but she shut the door once she saw that the people at the door were strangers. About ten minutes later, the police from the Xuanwu Police Department found Ms. Sun's body outside the building. The cause of death was listed as falling from the building.
If Ms. Sun were dead on April 23, why did no one notify the family members right away. According to insiders, the police also arrested Ms. Sun Min on April 22, 2009. While Mr. Wu was interrogated at 3:00 p.m. or 4:00 p.m., Ms. Sun was interrogated in another room.
Ms. Sun's body was stored in a refrigerator drawer at the Beijing Shengtang Medico-Legal Appraisal Institute. The drawer can only be opened half-way, otherwise the whole drawer will fall down. So the family members could see only the front side of the upper body. Also the surface of Ms. Sun's body was covered with frost, so the wounds were not readily visible.
Nonetheless, several severe wounds are still obvious on the front side of the upper body:
The wounds in shape of "^" are spread evenly from left to right, about 1.5 cm apart. It's very likely the wounds were caused by teeth of an electric torture device affixed to the head. There was blood in the wounds. The forehead was covered with these wounds.
Ms. Sun usually wears her hair in a ponytail. Her hair is now messy, and it appears that someone had dragged her.
There is a black wound on the neck. It appears someone choked her about the neck. Behind the right ear there are many small bloody wounds with broken skin. They look like the wounds left by an electric baton.
There is a large black wound on the right shoulder. It looks like she was beaten with a heavy object. The wound covers the connection area from the right shoulder to the back. Its size could not be determined since her back could not be seen.
The marks on her wrists indicates she was handcuffed. The color of the hand is black, blue and red.
- Front side of the upper body
The surface shows bloody red-colored marks. They look like the marks left by an electric baton.
- Upper arms
Two upper arms were not close to the body, and her hands were "floating". It appears that she had been hung up.
Ms. Sun Min's Body
These pictures were taken when the official was not paying attention. When the couple's family member tried to take a picture of the whole body and her back, the officials stopped them.
The so-called Postmortem Examination Report appears to be falsified. It was fabricated so police could use it to show that Ms. Sun died as a result of falling from a height, in order to cover the real crime of murder in police custody. The report stated that all wounds were caused by the fall. The examination only covers the surface of the body and no report of any internal examination was included. They used this report to cover up the real reason of death and are trying to use it as evidence.
The "Postmortem Examination Report" was produced by Beijing Shengdang Judicature Identification Center:
