Most recent place of detention:
At about 8:00 p.m. on May 14, 2001, Zhang Ji and Wang Biao from the Police Department's Political and Security Division led police to Wu Cuiying's home to arrest her. Prior to this, Ms. Wu had been illegally detained twice for persisting in practicing Falun Dafa. After that, the police went several times to her home to arrest her and search her home but failed to find her. They also threatened her husband every time they were there.
On May 14, nobody answered the door when the police came, so the police stayed outside the door to wait until someone came home. At about 9:00 p.m., Zhang Ji and Wang Biao called additional police and started climbing up the side of the building to reach Ms. Wu's apartment on the sixth floor. They broke the window to get into the apartment. At this point, Ms. Wu was forced to jump from the sixth floor. Ms. Wu's husband followed her and also jumped. Ms. Wu's husband was not injured, but Ms. Wu died at 11:00 p.m. after emergency treatment failed to save her life.
