Case Description:

Ms. Shi Xizhi lived in the 402 Second Building in Yinfu Neighborhood, Kunming City, Yunnan Province. Because she was determined to practice Falun Dafa, she was arrested from her home by police between April and May 2002. She was secretly tried and sentenced to four years of imprisonment. She was detained in the Second Prison of Yunnan Province.

Ms. Shi Xizhi died from drug overdoses. She had high blood pressure, so the guards purposely gave her drugs that were harmful to her blood pressure, which resulted in her death.

Late at night on March 8, 2005, the prison called her daughter, saying that her mother was gravely ill. Ms. Shi Xizhi passed away in the early morning of March 17, 2005.
