Dafa practitioner Li Decong, female, 50-years-old, lived on Xiaobei Street, Guanghan City, Sichuan Province. On November 13, 2002, over a dozen police officers forcefully carried Li Decong away while she was working at a teashop in Mashi Street, Guanghan City. She was sent to Hexing Town brainwashing center in Guanghan City where she was brutally beaten and abused. Six persons from the "610 Office" lifted her up and threw her on the ground six times and caused severe internal injuries and a hemorrhage. In order to escape their responsibility, the police sent her to Guanghan City No. 2 People's Hospital. To escape surveillance, Li Decong ran out of hospital during a diagnostic test and was forced to leave home and move from place to place. More than 50 days later, she passed away in a private home on January 10, 2003.
