Mr. Jin Guangzhi, 58, of Wutu Village, Haixing County, Cangzhou City, Hebei Province, began to practice Falun Gong in 1998. His diabetes and many other illnesses all went away soon after. After seeing what had happened to him, many people began to cultivate. After Jiang Zemin's regime began to persecute Falun Gong on July 20, 1999, Mr. Jin was twice arrested by the Haixing Police Department, taken to jail, and fined 8000 yuan. In 2006, he was arrested by officers of the police department of the neighboring Wudi County in Shandong Province and put in Wudi County Police Station. Mr. Jin was tortured there for about two months and could not stand on his own without putting his life in jeopardy.
After Mr. Jin was taken home by his family, officers from the Police Department in Wuli County went to harass him at his home many times, which hampered his recovery, and he died on April 26, 2010, in Changzhou Second Hospital.
