Three Practitioners from Weifang City Die in Custody in October 2009

December 05, 2009 |   By a correspondent from Shandong Province

(Clearwsidom.net)  We have learned shocking news from Weifang City, Shandong Province, where three Falun Dafa practitioners were tortured to death while in custody in October 2009. Their names are Ms. Li Xiuzhen, Ms. Wang Li, and Mr. Tian Jinzhi.

◆Mr. Tian Jinzhi, 60, lived in Dianzi Village, Economic Development Zone in Weifang City, Shandong Province. He went out on October 1, 2009 as he normally did, but he never returned home and his whereabouts were unknown. On October 11, 2009, his family was suddenly notified by the Kuiwen District Police Department that Mr. Tian died around October 10, 2009 while in custody.

Mr. Tian's family is very angry, as they cannot believe such a healthy man could die in custody in such a short time period unless he was severely tortured. They were horrified to find that his body had been cut open and his organs seemed to have been disturbed. They are strongly doubting the cause of his death, as the police told them they cut open his body to find out the cause of death. They are wondering why they were not asked permission before cutting open his body. Mr. Tian was a very healthy man, and the police could not find any other medical problems to cover up the fact that they had tortured him. The family is trying to find out who beat him to death (See

◆Ms. Wang Li, 28, lived in Wang Jiazhuang Village, Kangzhuang Town, Gaomi City, Weifang City. On the afternoon of October 20, 2009, Ms. Wang Li tried to use her unemployment compensation card at the Gaomi City Human Resources Market. The employee that took her card told her that the computer showed the wrong information and that she needed to have it checked in the archive area upstairs. What the employee did was to notify the police and the card tracked her whereabouts.

Two plainclothes officers from the Gaomi City Economic Developing Zone Police Station arrested Ms. Wang and took her to the Gaomi City Domestic Security Division and 610 Office. They detained her in the Gaomi City Detention Center.

On October 28, 2009, when Ms. Wang's family brought some clothes for her, they were suddenly told that she had already died of a stroke. Her family saw that her body was covered with wounds. The source of information reported that Ms. Wang refused to answer any questions during interrogations, and the police beat her to death (See http://www.clearwisdom.net/html/articles/2009/11/11/112246.html

◆Ms. Li Xiuzhen, in her 50s, lived in Caojiadougou Village, Linghe Town, Anqiu City, Weifang City. Because she persisted in her belief in Truthfulness-Benevolence-Forbearance, she was arrested 19 times, sent to forced labor camps, was imprisoned for 7 years, and brutally force-fed 616 times. She endured more than a dozen tortures, but she still refused to give up her belief in Falun Gong. The guards used electric batons to shock her, and she still talked to them about the amazing benefits of Falun Gong. Ms. Li went on hunger strikes to protest the cruel beatings which occurred five or six times every day. The guards inserted a thick rubber tube into her nose to force-feed her. They deprived her of sleep for 28 days.

By the end of 2002, Ms. Li could not walk. She was emaciated and weighed only 50 pounds. She was released when she was close to dying. Her daughter, 13 years old, passed out in shock upon seeing the sight of her mother.

Li Xiuzhen recovered, and later lived away from home for over six years to avoid being arrested again. On the afternoon of June 13, 2009, plainclothes police arrested her again. Many days after Ms. Li died, her family saw her body in the Jinan City Prison some time during the beginning of October 2009. The authorities ordered that her body be cremated soon afterwards.
