Case Description:

In early October 1999, Li Guihua went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong. In late October, she was arrested. While waiting to be sent back to Chongqing, she died in the custody of the Chongqing Representative Agency in Beijing. After her husband was called to Beijing to identify her body, it was then cremated. In memory of Li Guihua, her husband had his picture taken in front of Tiananmen Square while holding her ashes. The Public Security Bureau threatened her husband, and ordered him to keep quiet about her death. Therefore, her cause of death is still unknown.
