Mr. Jin Chuanxiang was 54 years old. He was an unemployed worker from a porcelain factory in Tongcheng County, Hubei Province. He suffered from a heart condition and general ill health. After he started practicing Falun Dafa in 1995, his disease disappeared and he became very healthy. After the persecution started on July 20, 1999, he, his wife, and his fellow practitioners went to Beijing several times to appeal for Falun Dafa. He was illegally detained twice by the county police and brainwashed once. His wife also was detained several times and was forced to pay more than 4000 yuan in fines. Their family was often harassed and searched. Due to prolonged monitoring and threats, he had a heart attack and died on April 9, 2001.
