Ms. Lin Xifeng was a 57-year-old retiree from Nanyang City, Henan Province. She started practicing Falun Gong in 1997. Afterwards, several of her illnesses went away. In February 2000, she was arrested on her way to Beijing. She was held at the detention center in Shang Township, Nanyang City for 15 days. Ms. Lan was fined 1,000 yuan and was also brutally tortured. Because she was often harassed at her home, she couldn't practice the exercises. As a result, Ms. Lin had a relapse and passed away in January of 2002.
