Ms. Xu Zengfang was 50 years old, and her home was in Nanli, Yichang, the Tanggu District, Tianjin. She became healthy after starting to practice Falun Gong in 1997. However, she was harassed from time to time by government agents after July 20, 1999, and was forced to attend brainwashing classes in 2001 by the police. Because she did not give up her practice, government agents and the police broke into her house many times. In March 2004, police officers from the Hangzhou Road Police Station in the Tanggu District broke into her house, searched it, snatched all the Dafa books, and once again forced her into the detention center in the Tanggu District. She was kept there for 15 days and was badly injured. She used to be healthy, but under the great mental pressure, her health deteriorated, and she died of disease on January 1, 2005.
