Shi Zhongyan, male, 45 years old, lived at 45-119 Anleli, Linghe District, Jinzhou City, Liaoning Province. He used to work at the Jinzhou Department Store. For appealing in Beijing for Falun Gong, in July 2000 Shi was kidnapped and taken to Jinzhou Labour Camp. Enduring various means of torture by his captors, Shi refused to give up his beliefs and was therefore kept in detainment beyond his two-year sentence. At 1:00 a.m. on April 26th, 2003, Shi Zhongyan passed away in #205 People's Liberation Army Hospital, after enduring long-term, brutal persecution.
