Ms. Deng Zhengyuan, 43 years old, was an employee at the Xupu County Rice Factory in Hunan Province. In March 2000, she went to Beijing to validate Falun Dafa. Later, she was detained for 15 days and fined 4,500 yuan. In the first half of 2001, she was detained in a hotel for two days and two nights on orders of her workplace supervisors. On October 14, 2002, her home was again searched. Ms. Deng was kidnapped and detained at the Political Security Office for 24 hours. Because Ms. Deng insisted on practicing Falun Gong, she was followed and monitored continuously. In May 2005, Ms. Deng died of illness.
