Zeng Xianmei, female, 63 years old, lived in Lushunkou District, Dalian City, Liaoning Province. Zeng obtained Dafa in 1995. On August 9, 2001, when she was doing housework in her daughter's home at Sanyuan Street of Xigang District (her daughter was not at home at the time), policemen from the Xigang District Branch of Dalian Public Security Bureau broke into the home through the window after Zeng refused to open the door. Policemen illegally ransacked her daughter's home and found Dafa books and some other materials, so they used this as an excuse to take Zeng Xianmei away for "interrogation." On August 14, it suddenly became known that Zeng had passed away. According to sources, her body was full of wounds and bruises.
