Most recent place of detention:
Dai Xiang-guang, male, originally was a contact person for Falun Gong in Putian City, Fujian Province. On July 22, 1999, the police arrested him. Within two days, news that he had died became widely known. The police forcibly cremated the body, without letting his family inspect it. They fabricated a rumor saying that Dai Xiang-guang committed suicide by jumping from the 7th floor of a building to the ground. However, according to the observation of a family member, after he died, Dai's body was seen, and had no injuries that would indicate a 7-story fall. This indicated that Dai didn't commit suicide, but was beaten to death. Dai Xiang-guang was only 29 years old.
