New Report Claims Tiananmen Activist Li Wangyang Committed Suicide
Created: 2012-07-13 10:52 EST
Questions still remain after a group organized by Hunan officials published a report detailing the death of Tiananmen Square activist Li Wangyang. Known as the “Tough Guy of June 4th,” Li's death was first ruled a suicide, then an accident.
Now, the 10,000 word report officially deems Li's death a suicide. 20 people authored the document.
The report says that the blind, deaf, and nearly immobile activist hanged himself with a bed sheet. (quote) "A traumatic spinal cord injury breaking Li's neck fit the medical conditions induced by hanging to death."
The report, released by Hunan's Communist authorities, hasn't silenced those who believe Li's death was not a suicide.
Li Wangyang was cremated on June 9th, just three days after his body was discovered. This report comes a month after Li's cremation.
