Mr. Jia Fengxiang was sixty years old, and was from Xinzhuang Village, Yaoshan Town in Lushan County, Henan Province. He was an official in the town government. In July of 2000, Mr. Jia Fengxiang went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Dafa. As a result, he was sent back to Lushan Detention Center and detained for over thirty days. Because he wrote a letter to the secretary of the Lushan County Party Committee to clarify the truth of Dafa, on September 29, 2002, he was deceived and taken to the county detention center by police from the county public security bureau. He was once again detained for over twenty days. He was released only because he was ill. He had no money for medical treatment, and he passed away on May 19, 2003.
