Practitioner Ms. Li Xiaohua, in her 40s, was an elementary school teacher who lived in Weichang County, Chengde City, Hebei Province. On November 17, 2000, she went to Beijing to clarify the truth and was arrested. She was severely injured from a beating sustained in custody, and her head swelled. Ms. Li was detained in the local detention center and then later sentenced to forced labor at the Gaoyang Forced Labor Camp. She was rejected by the camp because she had high blood pressure. Ms. Li was detained in the detention center until her relatives helped to get her released on medical parole. The 610 Office members and State Security Agents constantly harassed Ms. Li at her home until she died on January 2, 2002.
