Wu Kailun died of illness at home in New York on February 26, 2011. According to Wu’s college classmate Mr. Su, Wu was a talented and excellent student in college, and soon after graduation, he went to America to earn his living.

Wu suffered from liver disease before, later after practicing Falun Gong, he felt his condition improved, then began to obsess with Falun Gong and took an active part in all kinds of Falun Gong activities. Wu often sent information about Falun Gong and Shen Yun performances to his classmates by email and invited them to see Shen Yun.

Some net friends said that Li Hongzhi boasted of being “the sovereign Buddha of the universe” and having “supernatural power”, Li also advocated that diseases could be cured through practicing Falun Gong. For believing in Li Hongzhi, Wu paid with his life.
