Sixty-year-old Ms. Wu Chunlan was from Houhong Village, Badonghao Township, Heishan County, Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province. On September 27, 2004, the police went to her home to arrest her oldest daughter, a Falun Gong practitioner. Since her daughter wasn't home, the police instead took her as a hostage. Ms. Wu was detained at the county detention center for two weeks. Ms. Wu passed away in January 2005.
