(Minghui.org) Ms. Xu Fang died within less than one month of her release from a 15-day detention for practicing Falun Gong, a spiritual practice being persecuted by the Chinese Communist regime.

The Changde City, Hunan Province woman was arrested with her husband, Mr. Huang Jixian, in the early morning on August 11, 2015. While Mr. Huang was released around noon that day, Ms. Xu was sent to a local lockup to serve a 15-day detention.

The police ransacked the couple's home while both were still held in the local police station. When Mr. Huang returned home, he found the whole house in disarray. Their computer, cell phones, and Falun Gong materials were confiscated.

Ms. Xu's family suspects foul play at the lockup, as she kept vomiting and having diarrhea after returning home on August 26. She passed away on September 18.
