Case Description:

Wang Lixin, male, about 30, Jilin City, Jilin Province, was beaten to death and died from this brutal abuse on December 4, 2000

While he was distributing Dafa materials, Wang Lixin was arrested and later sent to Jilin City No. 3 Detention Center. Since he refused to cooperate with the malevolent thugs in the detention center, he was brutally beaten. He went on a hunger strike as a means to appeal for his release. The guards force-fed him with salt water and handcuffed his four limbs together. On December 3, 2000, the 9th day of his hunger strike, the debased police "officers", Zhang Guanjun and Yang Zhonghua and several criminal prisoners dragged Wang Lixin into a "watch room" and brutally beat him for about an hour. Other practitioners in the cells could hear his grievous screams. When he was sent back to the cell, his whole body was covered with wounds and his mouth was sealed with adhesive tape. On the next day, these two guards, Zhang Guanjun and Yang Zhonghua, brought him into the "watch room" once more and ordered the common, criminal prisoners named Lai Hongxiang and Feng Naiwu to ferociously beat him again. The guards even urged the abusers on, saying: "Beat him up! Beat him to death! We will take the responsibility if he dies!"

Ten minutes later, the painful screaming from Wang Lixin stopped. The guards discovered that his life was in danger. In panic, they sent him to the hospital. However, it was already too late. Wang Lixin had been beaten to death. To keep the information from being made public, the detention center sent all Dafa practitioners who witnessed the tragic incident to labor camps.
