On the morning of July 7, villager Gong-Xue Hui of Cha Zi Shan, Yuelu District in Chang-Sha, was found dead under the ruins of her home. Gong-Xue Hui went missing on June 16, the day her house was demolished by force.

The video below is another similar case, a house destroyed while women were on the roof:

Gong-Xue Hui’s son, Yang Jun, told a reporter of Beijing Times that their house was demolished by force on June 16 after his family members, including his mother, were removed forcibly from their home. They were put in buses and were not allowed to get off the buses until the demolition was completed. Gong-Xue Hui went missing afterwards. “We were not sure whether she was buried under the ruins or being taken away by them. We’ve searched every place, even hospitals. The police refused to take a report or give us an explanation.” said Yang.


On July 6, Yang Jun and his family hired an excavator, hoping to find his mother in the rubble. After digging for about half an hour, the excavator received a phone call and refused to continue digging. On July 7, Yang Jun and his family hired another excavator and found Gong-Xue Hui ‘s body after three hours of digging. According to Yang’s understanding, the place where his home used to stand will be used for re-housing buildings, and they haven’t yet settled the conditions with the local government. “It’s not just us who haven’t got the conditions settled.” said Yang.
