Ms. Jiao Xiuying was 80 years old. She was a Falun Dafa practitioner from Shanxi Province. She started practicing Falun Dafa in 1998. In a short period of time, her health improved dramatically and various illnesses vanished. After the persecution of Falun Gong began on July 20, 1999, she was harassed many times and her home was ransacked. All of her family members were determined not to give up their practice; three of her family members were sentenced because they refused to renounce Falun Gong. As an 80-year-old woman, Ms. Jiao Xiuying was left at home to live with her daughter. The police constantly harassed and intimidated her. One night in October 2002, a group of policemen (about 20) broke into her house and ransacked it. The sudden trauma caused Ms. Jiao to collapse. She was helped to bed but was never able to get up again. A few days later, the policemen deceived and detained her daughter. Jiao Xiuying passed away in November 2002.
