Tan Sufen, female, 58, lived in the 11th Commune of the Heping Village in the township of Nanxing, Guanghan City, Sichuan Province. She was arrested in late December of 2000 for going to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong, and was subjected to inhumane treatment while under police custody. She was sent back to her hometown of Nanxing and held at the local detention center. At that point, she was in such a fragile state that her family members were allowed to take her home the very next day. She passed away six days later.
