Mr. Li Wenming, age 70, was a Falun Gong practitioner in Xiangtan City, Hunan Province. He and his wife, Mrs. Quan Huiping, firmly persisted in practicing Falun Gong despite the persecution. For this, they suffered frequent abuse. On February 9, 2002, several corrupt policemen, including Li Sheng abducted Mr. Li from his home. Li Wenming died shortly thereafter.
