Liu Jinqiao, male, lived at Building 5, Block 1 of Ganluyuan South Lane in Gaobeidian Town, Chaoyang District. He began to practice Falun Gong in 1994 and then was obsessed with it, especially the “Consummation” and “ascension”, imagining he could achieve “Consummation” and “become Buddha and immortal” with the Master’s blessing someday.
On the afternoon of July 6, 2004, Liu Jinqiao jumped from the 5-storey balcony of his own house, and died at the age of 70.
To provide more insight into Liu’s death, we interviewed Liu’s daughter, neighbors and the witness of that time in succession.
Liu Zhongmin, Liu Jinqiao’s daughter, said: “Since practicing Falun Gong, my father was like a different person, unsociable and eccentric. The family always persuaded him out of practice, but he refused and said the ‘Law Body’ of the Master was everywhere; as long as you believe in and practice it as early as possible, you would reach ‘Consummation’ and ‘ascension’ sooner or later. Since then, he didn’t bother about anything of the family, but practice and learn the Fa everyday, and finally was at variance with my mother. He separated from my mother and lived alone since 1996. During the 7 years of separation, he just came to see my mother and his grandson once in a while and the family ties became more and more tense. ”
Liu Zhongmin also talked about some other information about her Father. Besides Zhuan Falun and other books in Liu Jinqiao’s drawer, there was a suicide note written by himself. He wrote in the suicide note that:
“I leave away with the Master first. Actually, many of us who practice well are too frightened to practice any more. If you practice with us, maybe you can also go away. If you miss me, you should practice as early as possible, there’s still time. Here are the Master’s books, tapes, teaching videos as well as the Master’s Law Body that can guide you. Do you know that there are over one billion people practicing Falun Gong all over the world? In American, thousands of learned doctors are also practicing it. I think if you liberate yourself and put aside the private thoughts, you will reach Consummation quickly. You needn’t take a plane because it can’t fly out of the earth. I guess that’s the way it goes. I will be waiting for you in another planet; the Master will send you up one by one after the cultivation ends. I hope you can cultivate as soon as possible, hurry up! I’m waiting for you over there. Come up quickly! You can come up as long as you cultivate quickly.”
Yao Jinyu and her boyfriend Guo Sen, neighbors of Liu Jinqiao, said: “At about 3:00 p. m. on July 6, 2004, the new fridge we bought were delivered to home, so we went downstairs to carry it. Unconsciously, we saw an old man bending over the balcony of the fifth floor; he put his head and hands out of the balcony, with a towel covering his head and a towel around the neck. ”
Wu Chengjing and his mother happened to pass by at that time. His mother said: “I told my son (Wu Chengjing) and them (Yao Jinyu and Guo Sen) that you should go upstairs to see what happened, he may fall down by accident.”
The witness of this accident Sun Fuxian said:”I just walked up to the path near Building 5 with my granddaughter in my arms; I saw an old man bending over the balcony and his head was sliding down. I shouted to the security guards: Help, someone wants to jump off a building! Just at that moment, the old man covered his face with a towel and lifted his legs, jumping down.”
Wu Chengjing, Yao Jinyu and Guo Sen said: “On hearing someone shouted for help, we rushed to the room 501 on the fifth floor with the guy who sent the fridge. The security door of his house was half-open, but another door inside was locked. We kicked the door open and found that there was nobody, but a black chair in the balcony. From the balcony we saw that the old man had already lain on the ground.”
