One Year Since Warmbier Released From North Korea

posted by Melissa Neeley -

(Cincinnati, OH) It's been one year since Otto Warmbier was released from captivity in North Korea.

When he arrived home to the Tri-State, he was in a coma and died six days later. 

The 22-year old University of Virginia student was on a five-day tour of North Korea when he was arrested and accused of stealing a propaganda poster.  

After he was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor, North Korea claimed he slipped into a coma after contracting botulism and taking a sleeping pill, but doctors at U.C. Medical Center said they found no traces of botulism and said they believed he suffered injuries related to a cardiac arrest.
