Mr. Feng Shichao lived in the 9th group of the 3rd Village, Salian Town, Miyi County, Sichuan Province. He started to practice Falun Gong in 1997. Before practicing, he had stomach troubles, lower back pain, and arthritis and had to frequently take medicine. After practicing Falun Gong, all these symptoms disappeared. One evening in 2000, Feng and his fellow practitioners went out to post flyers when the Miyi County police arrested, tortured and then released him. Mr. Feng died soon after returning home.
