Case Description:

( Ms. Li Suzhen and her husband, Mr. You Yunsheng, both benefited from practicing Falun Gong. The couple from Shouguang City, Shandong Province, however, was repeatedly targeted for their faith.

Ms. Li was arrested on March 30, 2015 and detained for one year. She was no longer herself when she was released. She developed brain atrophy and had a stiffed tongue. She couldn't walk, talk, or eat by herself.

Her husband, Mr. You, was arrested in 2008 and sentenced to six years in prison. In order to seek his release, Ms. Li took a taxi to the local police department every day. She was once driven to a wrong place because of her difficulty saying her destination clearly. As she wandered about in the unfamiliar place, she fell and hit her head on some hard surface. A good samaritan called an ambulence to take her to a hospital.

Ms. Li's health further declined and her family hired two aides to help her around in the house. Her loved ones eventually decided to send her to a nursing home. Not long afterwards, she suddenly collapsed at the nursing home and died shortly aferwards. It was October 27, 2017, and she was 72.

It's unclear whether Mr. You, who is still serving time, has been informed of his wife's death.
