Over 10,000 people rioted and torched the local police station and government buildings in southwest Chinaís Guizhou province Saturday, June 28, to vent anger towards the local governmentís cover up of an alleged rape and murder of a female student.
The victimís foster father, Xie Xinfa, and several other locals told the Epoch Times , ďThe officials have become the protective umbrella of bad people and mobsters. Rich and powerful people can engage in illegal activities without any consequences, while the common people are without money and can barely make enough money to stay alive.Ē
According to an investigation by the Epoch Times , the victim, Li Shufen, was a student from Wengían County No. 3 High School. Liís brother found her dead in a river around midnight on June 21. There were also two males and one female standing on a nearby bridge near the scene of the crime. The female, surnamed Wang, is Liís classmate and claimed that Li committed suicide by jumping into the river.

Liís brother found no water in Liís stomach, and he had never saw any indicators that Li had suicidal tendencies. They took Wang and the two other men to the local police station. The three were unconditionally released the next morning and the police claimed that the victim died from suicide. There was no investigation written record provided, according to witnesses.
Local residents told Liís family that they heard people yelling for help around 11 p.m. that evening. One person said Li was raped, then killed and tossed into the river. The police did not conduct a comprehensive autopsy, or take any precautionary measures, and the familyís request for a complete autopsy was ignored.
