Mao Yanping, a 34-year old male, was a resident of Shijiazhuang City in Hebei Province.

He fled to Taiyuan City in Shanxi Province to avoid persecution from the Shijiazhuang Police. On October 30 2002, when Mr. Mao was producing literature for clarifying the truth about Falun Gong, the police squad of Wanbolin District in Taiyuan City arrested him. Three days later, Policeman Li Jingfeng beat Mao to death.
