Practitioner Ms. Mi Changrong of Donghuayuan Village, Yunyang Town, Nanzhao County, Nanyang City, Henan Province, died on July 29, 2005, as a result of the persecution. The police and local officials had subjected her to threats and harassment over an extended period of time. They had also confiscated her home, and on many occasions, they had arrested her husband Li Xingcheng or put him in a forced labor camp. On June 8, 2005, they had again arrested Mr. Li.

Ms. Mi was 54 years old. Before she learned Dafa in 1997, she had nephritis and was very weak. She took medicine often, but nothing helped. After she practiced Falun Dafa for two months, her illness disappeared and she became strong.

When Ms. Mi's husband clarified the truth to his students, his co-worker, who did not want to hear the truth, reported him to the authorities. In the afternoon on May 30, 2005, National Religion Team Chief Yang Junzhou led officers of the Nanzhao County Police to seize Ms. Mi's home. On June 8, the police arrested her husband at the Yunyang Railroad Station and then imprisoned him in the Nanzhao County Detention Center.

Since the persecution of Falun Dafa started in 1999, the authorities have imprisoned Ms. Mi's husband or put him in a labor camp on several occasions. They also have extorted 30,000 yuan from him. On June 9, Ms. Mi sent clothing to her husband. In May, she requested her husband's wages from Yunyang Town School Committee Director Zhang Chunzheng, but he responded by threatening her.

After losing her source of financial support and hearing that her husband might be sentenced to prison yet again, Ms. Mi suffered greatly in both mind and body. She died in the Xiangdong Machine Factory Staff Hospital on July 29, 2005.
