Practitioner Ms. Yang Ronghua, 56, was a doctor at Henan Agricultural University. She obtained Dafa in 1998 and recovered from numerous illnesses. In July 2000 she went to Beijing to validate Dafa, and officials from her work unit took her back to her hometown from Beijing. She was held at the Heizhuang Detention Center for more than two weeks. Ms. Yang persisted in practicing Dafa after her release, but she was constantly monitored and not allowed to contact anyone outside her home. She became depressed, suffered a relapse of her old illness, and died on April 29, 2001.
