Mr. Cao Jinlin was 55 years old and lived in Cao Village, Yingzi Town, Botou City, Hebei Province. Even though he was practicing Falun Dafa privately in his home, the police still came to his house to harass him after July 20, 1999, when Falun Dafa was officially outlawed by the Chinese Communist Party. He was sent to a brainwashing class around September 15, 2001, where he was injured both mentally and physically, and died around February 20, 2005.c
