At that time, Shen Changzhang's married eldest daughter learned that both her parents had been arrested, and immediately accompanied by her cousin, went to the investigation bureau to find Jiang Hairong's dignitaries. But Jiang Hairong said helplessly, he couldn't help it. Because, in fact, what the top officials of the Investigation Bureau really want to arrest is not the Shen Changzhang couple, but the couple to frame Jiang Hairong and Li Shijie as bandit spies. Jiang Hairong himself was the target of the purge. At that time, he was already scared to death. Knowing that the next target was him, he could not protect himself, so how could he save Shen Zhangzhang.
Unexpectedly, Shen Changzhang and her husband, popular database because they have been friends with Jiang Hairong and others for a long time, are no longer just a subordinate relationship. Because Jiang Hairong and Shen Zhangzhang's husband and wife are from the same town, they later became good friends. Jiang Hairong even became the godfather of Shen Zhangzhang's three daughters. For this reason, the two did not want to frame Jiang Hairong, and were tortured for not accusing Jiang of being a bandit spy. Among them, Shen Changzhang was tortured the most and was tortured to death in the end. The famous writer Bo Yang mentioned in "Bo Yang's Memoirs" this period of Shen Changzhang's torture process:
She was stripped naked, and a thick hemp rope was pulled across the opposite corner of the house, and she rode on it and walked up and down. Shen Yuanzhang wailed and cried for help, and even the cook in the kitchen shed tears. It was the greatest humiliation and pain a female reporter has suffered in the history of the newspaper industry. When she walked for the third time and the blood was running down her thigh, the only remaining voice was: "I tell the truth, I confess, I confess...". She asked investigators to put her down and leave temporarily to allow her to dress herself. After the investigator left, she knew that the harsher punishment was yet to come, and she could not confess what she had never done, so she hanged herself in the corner.
