In late 2001 as she was clarifying the truth to people, Ms. Qu Shufen, a farmer from Chengzhuang Village, Lianzhen Township, Dongguang County, Hebei province, was detained and persecuted by policeman Gong Jingwen from the National Security Section. Both her mind and body were severely damaged as a result of abuse at the hands of the police. Upon her return home, it was apparent that Ms. Qu had suffered a mental collapse. She died, a victim of injustice, at the end of 2003.
