Mr. Zhu Shuangxi, 58, was a farmer from Wujiamiao Village, Yuantou Town, Zanhuang County, Hebei Province. Before practicing Falun Gong, he suffered from a stroke and many other illnesses. After beginning Falun Dafa practice, his maladies disappeared.

In June 2003, members of the Zanhuang County Police Department and the local "610 Office" abducted him and ransacked his house. They detained and severely tortured him in Zanhuang Couty Detention Center for two months. Due to the torture, he became emaciated and weak, and many of his prior illnesses relapsed. The persecutors also extorted 5,000 yuan from him. After Zhu was released, on "sensitive days," (1) officials from the "610 Office" went to his house and harassed him. Under repeated persecution and pressure, Mr. Zhu Shuangxi left this world on October 2, 2004.
