In an extremely sad turn of events, Otto Warmbier, the University of Virginia student who was released by North Korea only days ago after being sentenced to hard labor for taking a propaganda poster, has died. He was only 22.

In a statement announcing his death, Otto’s parents, Fred and Cindy Warmbier, described their son as “a warm, engaging, brilliant young man whose curiosity and enthusiasm for life knew no bounds.” They said his countenance had changed from anguished to at peace since arriving home to Ohio, and they lambasted the “torturous mistreatment” he received from the North Koreans.

He never regained consciousness after returning to Ohio on June 13.

Otto was remembered at a funeral on June 22 attended by 2,500 mourners. His father wore an American flag tie.

Here’s what you need to know:


1. Otto’s Parents Say He Died Surrounded by Family & at Peace

(Facebook)

Fred and Cindy Warmbier, Otto’s parents, released an emotional statement on June 19 announcing that he had died surrounded by family. They said that Otto had seemed at peace in his final days.

Here is their statement in full:

It is our sad duty to report that our son, Otto Warmbier, has completed his journey home. Surrounded by his loving family, Otto died today at 2:20pm. It would be easy at a moment like this to focus on all that we lost – future time that won’t be spent with a warm, engaging, brilliant young man whose curiosity and enthusiasm for life knew no bounds. But we choose to focus on the time we were given to be with this remarkable person. You can tell from the outpouring of emotion from the communities that he touched – Wyoming, Ohio and the University of Virginia to name just two – that the love for Otto went well beyond his immediate family.

We would like to thank the wonderful professionals at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center who did everything they could for Otto. Unfortunately, the awful torturous mistreatment our son received at the hands of the North Koreans ensured that no other outcome was possible beyond the sad one we experienced today.

When Otto returned to Cincinnati late on June 13th he was unable to speak, unable to see and unable to react to verbal commands. He looked very uncomfortable – almost anguished. Although we would never hear his voice again, within a day the countenance of his face changed – he was at peace. He was home and we believe he could sense that. We thank everyone around the world who has kept him and our family in their thoughts and prayers. We are at peace and at home too.

Fred & Cindy Warmbier and Family

Although Warmbier was comatose since returning from North Korea, it had not been publicly known that his death was imminent. “Disbelief. Couldn’t sit down,” Fred said in a recent news conference before Otto’s death, describing his reaction when the parents learned Otto was in a coma.

“We’ve been brutalized for the last 18 months… misinformation, no information. We are proud of the fact that our family is basically happy, positive people, and we’re going to stay that way,” Fred Warmbier said.


2. Warmbier Was Sentenced to 15 Years of Hard Labor & Paraded on Television by the North Koreans

It was a horrific show trial for a young American student who did nothing more than supposedly take a poster as a souvenir. The North Korean government said Warmbier, who was on a trip with the Young Pioneer Tours company, tore down a propaganda poster at the Yanggakdo International Hotel, where he and about 100 other westerners were staying. He was in North Korea with a Chinese tour company that has now stopped offering North Korea tours to Americans. Otto Warmbier was arrested in January 2016 while trying to leave North Korea at the Pyongyang Sunan International Airport.

The North Korean government said the crime was an act “of hostility against the state” and accused him of being affiliated with spies. He was paraded in front of the television cameras by North Korea for propaganda purposes. Few can forget the 2016 images of the anguished, frightened Warmbier in a North Korean kangaroo court.

According to NPR, on camera, in a forced confession, Otto “said he stole the propaganda poster on behalf of a member of the Friendship United Methodist Church in Wyoming, Ohio, who wanted it ‘as a trophy.’ In exchange, he would receive a used car worth $10,000.”

Warmbier begged for his release and broke into tears, saying the situation was “the worst mistake of my life,” reported NPR.

It’s now known that Otto lapsed into a coma shortly after that television appearance, although it’s not clear why, and even his family did not know his medical condition until recently. It’s also not known what happened to Otto in North Korea after that television appearance, although injuries to his body tell their own tale.

President Donald Trump released a statement offering condolences to Warmbier’s family and condemning the North Korean regime.

Trump wrote that Otto’s death “deepens my Administration’s determination to prevent such tragedies from befalling innocent people at the hands of regimes that do not respect the rule of law or basic human decency.”


3. Otto Warmbier Was Released Just Days Before His Death but Suffered Severe Neurological Injury

The news came suddenly, just days before his death, that North Korea was freeing Warmbier, who is an Ohio native. It wasn’t clear what provoked North Korea to release Warmbier, but the Donald Trump administration had made getting him back a priority. Trump telephoned Warmbier’s parents after the release, Fred Warmbier said.

North Korea has said that the student contracted botulism after the television appearance, but Warmbier’s parents, Fred and Cindy, dispute this contention. The cause of death may never be known in the sense that it’s not clear what the North Koreans did to Warmbier to cause his neurological injuries.

In a news conference back home, Otto’s doctors said that he “suffered extensive brain damage and shows no current signs of botulism,” according to CNN. He had not spoken or “engaged in any purposeful movements…He shows no signs of understanding language or responding to verbal commands,” a doctor said, describing his condition as “unresponsive wakefulness” but declining at that time to give a prognosis, CNN reported.

Doctors said that they found “no evidence of trauma after examining all of Warmbier’s bones…scans did not show any acute or healing fractures, including scans of his skull,” according to WCPO. He was well-nourished, the doctors said.

The television station reported that American doctors “received copies of brain MRI images from medical officials in North Korea… The two images on the disc were dated April and July 2016.” As a result, the doctors said they “suspect Warmbier’s injury occurred in the preceding weeks.” but there was no way to verify the notations.

According to Fox News, “doctors said that Warmbier had suffered ‘extensive loss of brain tissue,’ suggesting he had lost blood supply to his brain for a period of time.”


4. Fred Warmbier Lambasted the North Koreans in an Angry Press Conference, Wearing His Son’s Jacket

Fred Warmbier gave an angry and emotional press conference on June 15, in which he wore his son’s jacket from that propaganda appearance and described North Korea as a “pariah” regime. “We’re thrilled that our son is on American soil,” he said then.

“Otto was a young university student who was on a tour with other university students. He’s never been in trouble with his life,” said his heartbroken and angry father. “He fought to stay alive through the worst the North Koreans put him through to return to the family and community he loves.”

Warmbier’s parents did have a chance to see their son again and to bring Warmbier back to Cincinnati and hold him in their arms. “Our son is coming home,” Fred Warmbier told The Washington Post after news of Otto’s release broke. “At the moment, we’re just treating this like he’s been in an accident. We get to see our son Otto tonight.”

When Otto was first freed, his parents released a statement that said in part, “Otto has left North Korea. He is on a Medivac flight on his way home. Sadly, he is in a coma and we have been told he has been in that condition since March of 2016. We learned of this only one week ago. We want the world to know how we and our son have been brutalized and terrorized by the pariah regime in North Korean. We are so grateful that he will finally be with people who love him.”

Fred and Cindy Warmbier had previously spoken out and claimed they were “urged to keep quiet” about Otto Warmbier by the Obama administration, according to Fox News.

“They feel you don’t get involved that way,” Fred said, according to Fox News. “It lets the other side solve problems and make things happen.” In the June 15 press conference, he repeated this contention but said he and his wife decided in the spring that the “time for strategic patience was over.”

“The results speak for themselves,” Fred said, when asked if he felt the previous administration could have done more.

At his funeral, his family displayed items from his travels, including the jacket he wore during the North Korean propaganda video.

5. Otto Warmbier Was High School Salutatorian & His Dad Cherishes Memories of Otto Playing Soccer

(Contributed photo)

The young Ohioan was a top student in his high school class who was well-regarded and had big dreams. “Otto was a sweet, loving, kind person,” his father said in the press conference.

Otto Warmbier graduated from Wyoming High School in Ohio in 2013 as class Salutatorian, reported Cincinnati.com.

In high school, Warmbier was an outstanding student and a “great kid,” the newspaper reported, adding that he received a scholarship and was named a student of the year. “He qualified for the dean’s list at the University of Virginia, where he was also an Echols Scholar, an honor awarded to the top 7 percent of incoming first-year students, according to Warmbier’s LinkedIn page. Warmbier also serves as alumni chair for the Theta Chi fraternity at the university,” reported Cincinnati.com.

Warmbier’s father said he clung to that image as propaganda images of his son were disseminated on television by the North Korean regime.

“When I see the picture of Otto going on TV with that confession, that’s not the image I have of my son in my heart,” Fred Warmbier said to Fox News. “The image I have of my son is playing soccer three short years ago in high school.”

He gave CNN another memory: “It hurts my spirit. My vision of Otto is before he left on this trip. We were in the TV room and my easy chair broke and I had to crawl underneath this dirty chair and next thing I know his head is next to mine, and we’re looking at each other and we’re smiling and there’s love.” Fred Warmbier said to CNN. “So when I look at this picture of Otto in handcuffs being forced to do these things, it’s too painful … I’m focused on the future and bringing Otto home.”

You’re probably low life white trash with five kids. Two are on heroin, one is pregnant, and the rest are in jail. And all about to turn sixteen.
And what about you? I’m betting you’ve done nothing with your life. You probably live in a trailer, smell like booze and s–t, and have six teeth among you entire family.

In fact, I’m betting your family tree might as well be a turd that sprouted leaves.

How dare you insult that poor family. No family should have to endure what they did. You’re lucky we’re not face to face cause I’d knock YOU out and blame it on botulism.

How do we know if he really stole a poster? NK claims korean war was started by U.S and U.S. attacked NK first. NK agreed to stop making nukes and received so much aid. But, they continued developing nukes underground. Otto was most likely framed and held hostage for ransom and U.S. didn’t give in and they killed him. NK has been developing method to kill people without leaving evidence. NK used one of those to kill Kim’s brother in Malaysia. It was VX lotion. Passerby rub it or spray on target’s skin and target dies within an hour without killing others in vicinity. Malaysian government couldn’t figure out what was used for a long time until outside help was used. Otto could have been used to test such toxin and U. S. still can’t pinpoint what exactly killed his brain cells. It was bad idea to delist NK from state sponsor of terrorism. NK is more terrifying than ISIS.

We don’t know, but let’s not gloss over the fact he went there on his on free will. Very foolish decision. There are places in the US I avoid because it dangerous. IMO Cops are more terrifying than NK or ISIS. More US citizens killed by cops than NK & ISIS combined.

Otto Warbler was murdered by people who hate Americans. North Korea has no understanding of loving another human being. Their tortures are probably more than I could ever fathom. I am so sad for this young man. I am so sorry his family could do nothing to help him because he was in a country that hates us and loves to torture anyone and parade them around as animals. What a horrible way to die. I’m glad he was finally released and he was allowed to be brought home. His parents said he looked like he was at peace before he died. This was a horrible situation. The biggest mistake he made was crossing the border into North Korea. He was adventurous but it cost him. Any time they can grab an innocent American and make a mockery of them, they will. I am so sorry he suffered. I am so sad for his family. He is at peace now and no longer in pain. His parents will suffer the loss of their son until they die. He was a young man and no matter what he did- the punishment did not fit the time. He is free of pain now and whole again inHeaven.

Here is the thing: This is tragic, and it was preventable. Parents have to step in, when they pay for their college-age kid to go to a country that is a very unstable, inhuman communist regime where people are kidnapped all the time and where some people have never been seen again, including Americans. Remember the journalist sister of LIsa Ling? She stepped into N. Korea, by her own admission after she returned to the States, also was with some tour guide who recommended how she do her reporting, and she took those risks and almost had to stay there. Only because this gal was working for Al Gore’s now-defunct news agency did Bill Clinton get involved to go and rescue those two ladies. And,they were still held for about 7-8 months, if I remember right. What about Ryan Lochte? Look up his weird behavior and the lies he told at the Rio Games, and you can see what happens even for “minor” offenses in a foreign country, when you don’t follow the rules, let alone a communist regime where they starve their people. There are plenty of places to go in the world, safer places,where this “curious kid” could have gone to see what oppressive regimes are, where he’d have been a lot less likely to be detained or risk being imprisoned if he took one small step in the wrong way and then is used as a pawn. This was created by the unfortunate chain of events, whether a poster or not, that resulted in him being on this trip and somehow becoming a target of N Korea’s need to find a way to use him-and then kill him. He didn’t kill himself, but his decisions and those of his parents to allow him to go resulted in the chain of events that led to his death, much the way those who do dangerous things (join the military, climb Mt. Everest, work with terrorists, cover stories in dangerous lands, do scientific experiments in remote areas with wild animals which can kill you) die. Nobody wants this, and it’s tragic, no doubt about it. Bless his poor community and family, but this trip was ill-informed and doomed. Most people who are arrested in N Korea are detained because they preached Christianity, made a statement in a classroom that was controversial,etc. and hey, they don’t deserve to die or be imprisoned indefinitely. I’ve been to the DMZ, and I’ve spent time in S Korea,and believe me, you don’t play around with fire if you don’t want to risk being burned. That’s the lesson here: Don’t go to another communist regime or do something risky and wonder why it didn’t go well for you.

This article is garbage. It’s clear that he hung himself. There were no bruises as determined by the doctors which means he wasn’t tortured. Why would NK kill him…. he was a good bargaining chip for them. It’s sad he died but he shouldn’t have been in NK.

Otto was murdered. Plain and simple. Why would someone kill themselves after begging for their lives? He was murdered for insulting their leader. I do agree going to North Korea was a huge mistake.

That’s my thought (suicide attempt), too. And now, there will be no autopsy…hmmm, seems a bit “off” to me. Kid gets sentenced to 15 years hard labor and days later is hospitalized in a coma. NK is like, “oh shit” and try to nurse him back to health, all the while refusing to allow Consular contact. Then, after a year of no improvement in his condition, they decide that it is a lost cause and release him (again, without any Consular contact). Now, Mom and Dad are saying “we don’t want an autopsy”, because it may prove that NK didn’t actually “torture” him, and Mom and Dad are more interested in vengeance on NK than anything else. Obviously, I could be completely wrong, but as a person who has been paid for decades to ferret out what is real and what is BS, this seems the most likely scenario to me…just a “gut” feeling – for whatever that’s worth/

The moral of this story is don’t do stupid shit in hostile foreign countries. No president, Republican or Democrat, is going to risk global conflict over a single life.

It doesnt matter if the crime was small or large… Otto committed a crime in a foreign country. I haven’t heard his parents place a single ounce of responsibility on their son. What happened to Otto is inhumane without a doubt, but Otto put HIMSELF in that situation. He wasnt kidnapped. He didnt get lost. He attempted to commit a crime and paid the price.

I knew he was going to die. North Korea does not do anything for the US without getting something in return. In this case it was clear that they sent him back because he was unresponsive, they had gone too far with his punishment, and they knew they’d never be able to get anything for his corpse so they sent him back before he could die in their country. Also they probably didn’t want to pay for his perpetual care in a hospital. Yeah he broke their law, yeah he acted like a foolish child stealing something, and doing such a disrespectful thing in North Korea is worthy of a Darwin Award, no one deserves to die for a poster of a monstrous dictator- a piece of paper, and an ugly one at that.
