Li Guojun was a 37-year-old female Dafa practitioner who lived in Dongyu Village, Weifang City, Shandong Province. Ever since 2001, she had to leave her home and move around frequently to avoid further persecution and unlawful arrest. She disappeared on April 16, 2002. In early June 2002, Cui (first name unknown), the Shouguang Town Party secretary went to Li Guojun's home and told Li Guojun's husband that she was being held in Shouguang's "610 Office" brainwashing class at that time, and he ordered the husband to pay 2,000 Yuan before he would release her. The husband borrowed 2,000 Yuan and gave it to Cui and then waited for his wife to be released. Instead he and his family suffered a complete shock when on June 9, 2002, the authorities told Li Guojun's family that his wife had died!
