Case Description:
Mr. Jing Yuxue, 77 years old, was a resident from the Jintai District in Baoji City, Shaanxi Province. Before he started to practice Falun Gong in July 1996 he suffered from multiple illnesses, including severe heart disease, diabetes, stomach illness and others. In just one month after he started to practice Falun Gong all of his illnesses were gone. After the persecution of Falun Dafa started on July 20, 1999, the wife of the old man's second son was illegally sentenced to forced labor, and suffered brainwashing several times. His elder son's wife left home to avoid further persecution, and her whereabouts are still unknown. The lawless persons from the police department, the neighborhood committee, and his sons' employer often went to Mr. Jing's home to harass them. The old man also needed to take care of his grandson. So, under these various pressures he died an unjust death on April 15, 2004. Even when he was about to die, the old man still said that he firmly believed in the goodness of Falun Dafa.
