Around July 1, 2005, Falun Dafa practitioner Mr. Yang Lichuang from Tumu Township, Huining County, Gansu Province was deceived into returning to his workplace by the leaders of the workplace. The County Party School was promoting the movement, "Maintain the advanced nature of party members" at that time. That night, Mr. Yang was inhumanly persecuted and tortured to death. His body was thrown into a cellar. The leaders of his workplace lied to his family members, alleging that Mr. Yang picked up three months worth of salary checks and skipped town. They said that they wanted his family to persuade him to return to work. About a week later, local residents found the body in a cellar. Details of Yang Lichuang's death are currently being investigated.
