One Year Since Warmbier Released From North Korea

(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.
