Mr. Wang Shuxiang, 62, was from Jianxin Village of Shuangcheng City in Heilongjiang Province. He started practicing Falun Gong in 1997 and attained a healthy body and mind. In September of 1999, he went to Beijing to appeal. He was detained for 2 months and the police extorted 5,000 yuan from him. Later, he went to Beijing to appeal again and was then sent to a labor camp. The city's 610 office, the village government, and the police station frequently sent personnel to harass and threaten Mr. Wang. All of the pressure and stress brought on a serious illness, and he passed away on December 9, 1999.
