Mr. Diao Peng Died as a Result of Persecution
Mr. Diao Peng, 35, lived in Taiping Township, Changtu County, Liaoning Province. He was disabled, but Falun Dafa gave him a new life. Around March-April 2004, Mr. Diao Peng's wife was about to give birth. Taiping Township Police Station Director Liu Xinghai (male) and others arrested Mr. Diao and interrogated him at the station. They said Mr. Diao sent cell phone messages containing Falun Gong truth-clarifying information, and they were detected by Liaoning Province Domestic Security agents. Mr. Diao escaped from the station. His father was forced to chase him with the agents. On the way, the police vehicle got stuck in a pothole on a bridge. The agents forced Mr. Diao's father to pay to have the vehicle fixed and demanded that he find Mr. Diao.
Afterwards, Domestic Security Division Leader Liu Jianxin (male) threatened, tortured, and extorted more than 10,000 yuan cash--without receipts--from the detained Mr. Diao Peng. Officials also forced his uncle, a schoolteacher, to write a guarantee statement for him. This created a huge financial burden for his terrified family.
Mr. Diao Peng's wife is disabled, their daughter is in middle school, and their son is only three years old. His family lived on his income from repairing household appliances. Due to the extreme psychological pressure and financial tension, Mr. Diao Peng got sick and died on October 21, 2007, at the young age of 35.

Mr. Xu Xingguo Died after Being Injected with an Unknown Drug
Mr. Xu Xingguo, 59, lived in Wen Village, Huangni Township in Yongxing County, Hunan Province, and practiced Falun Gong. He was subjected to persecution by the local Party officials many times. He was detained in the county detention center three times. Once, he was beaten by about eight police officers, and after he passed out, they woke him up with a cigarette burn and continued to beat him.
In the spring of 2002, he was arrested by county Domestic Security agents while clarifying the truth. He was sentenced to two years in prison, but he released due to high blood pressure after being detained for seven months.
On February 28, 2007, he was arrested again while distributing truth clarifying materials in the countryside. He was sentenced to one year of forced labor. He was taken home from the Xinkaipu Labor Camp due to high blood pressure.
The Yongxing County 610 Office agents injected an unknown drug into his forehead before taking him home. His eyes constantly watered and his nose was congested when he returned home. He felt confused, experienced amnesia, and suffered miserably for six months. He died on November 14, 2007.
