On August 30, 2002, Falun Dafa practitioner Zhou Yuling from Fushun City Liaoning Province was illegally placed under arrest by the police for posting truth-clarifying materials in Qingyuan Manchu Autonomous County. After being detained in Dashagou Detention Center for 20 days, the "610 Office" (an agency specifically created to persecute Falun Gong, with absolute power over each level of administration in the Party and all other political and judiciary systems) police tortured her to death on September 20th and quickly cremated her body.
