Ms. Li Mei from Zhongpo Village, Poxin Town, Maogang District, Maoming City, Guangdong Province, became a Falun Dafa practitioner in late 1997 and tragically died from torture-related injuries at age 48. After the persecution started in July 1999, the local police arrested Ms. Li and detained her at Zhijiang Farms [a detention facility] for over a month. On January 24, 2001, Ms. Li was again detained in the Zhaitou Detention Center, Dianbai County, and was later transferred to the Maoming Brainwashing Center. At the brainwashing center, Li Mei suffered brutal torture, and was injected with drugs that damaged her nervous system and left her disoriented and confused. Consequently, she was no longer able to take care of herself after her release on August 2, 2003. Li Mei passed away on June 24, 2004.
