Yixin Wang, a 61 year-old male, was from Guojiacun Village of the Gouxi Town of Fangzi District of Weifang City. Before practicing Falun Gong, he had difficulty moving about and suffered from different diseases. Since he began practicing Falun Dafa, he didn't feel tired even after riding his bicycle for dozens of miles.
On June 30th, 2000, some people led by Changchun Song, the deputy secretary of the town branch of the Chinese Communist Party took Mr. Wang and illegally locked him in the yard of the public road station for over 40 days. During this period Mr. Wang slept on the wet cement floor everyday. The only coat that he used as a cover on the floor was also stolen. Mr. Wang endured inhuman torture both physically and mentally, everyday. In the end he went on a hunger strike for two days to protest when it became unbearable. On the third day he was sent home. At home Mr. Wang could not take food, stayed in bed, and looked sallow, could not take care of relieving himself. Soon Mr. Wang passed away.
