Ms. Deng Shufen, in her 70s, was a farmer living in Jitian Town, Shuangliu County in Chengdu City, Sichuan Province. She used to be very healthy, and she could "eat two bowls of rice at each meal," a Chinese saying indicating that she was strong. She was arrested and detained eight times after the persecution started. On October 1, 2007, she went to clarify the truth to the town government. In the middle of that night, Jitian Town National Guard Office Chair Su Wenhua, Political and Judiciary Committee member Zhu Yong (male), Jitian Town Police Station officers, and Town Security Guard Gao Shiming (male) arrested Ms. Deng and took her to the Chengdu City Legal Education Center (a brainwashing center) for 40 days. She was released after she could not eat as a result of the mental and physical torture. She was as thin as a skeleton, and her eyes remained wide open for two months. She died on May 5, 2008.
