Ms. Wang Shuhua was a 58-year-old resident of Beichen District, Tianjin City. Because she persisted in practicing Falun Gong and clarifying the truth, she was arrested on July 20, 2001. While in the detention center, she was tortured, causing her heart disease to recur. She was released 50 days later, but passed away on June 1, 2002 as a result of the persecution she had suffered.
