Chen Zhenli lived in Shahekou District of Dalian City. On the morning of February 8, she received a phone call from the police substation of Chejiacun Village, asking her to go to the police substation. Chen refused. At 10:30 p.m., several policemen came to Chen's residence. She was by herself at that time and refused to let them in. The policemen then began to bang on the door furiously. The noise they made shocked the neighbors. However, the police stopped the neighbors from going upstairs to see what is going on. The police used a screwdriver, a flat shovel, and a hammer to break down the door. Among the neighbors she was known as a nice lady who was always willing to help others. She had been illegally jailed and tortured at the vicious Masanjia Labor Camp over a year, but she remained steadfast in true cultivation. Her neighbor commented, "Are these police? They are bandits!" Around 11 o'clock, to escape the evil persecution, Chen Zhenli jumped out of the window. She died after being sent to the hospital.
