Ms. Wang Rongtan, who was over 60 years old, was a Dafa practitioner in Xinji City, Hebei Province. When the persecution of Falun Dafa began on July 20, 1999, she went to Beijing to appeal. On the way, the local police took away all of her money. Later, she was repeatedly threatened to the point where her body and mind suffered enormous harm. She died suddenly in the summer of 2004.
