Sixty-year-old Mr. Sun Faxiang, was tortured to death on May 14, 2002. He used to be a Falun Dafa practitioner in Ganyintang. He was lured to the local police station on false pretenses on July 26, 1999. Police forced him to carry Falun Dafa materials from a room, while secretly videotaping him. They then used the tape to fabricate lies for the benefit of the media.
He had previously been arrested on January 25, 2002, together with his wife because they were both persistent in cultivating Dafa. On this occasion they were detained for one month. Mr. Sun was locked in an icy cold small cell while running a fever of 39-40oC (102-104oF). Police forced him to go to the train station to see if any Falun Dafa practitioners went to appeal to Beijing. He resisted their demands and was tortured to death.
