Man. I wonder if we'll ever find out what really happened to him.

Otto Warmbier has died days after release from North Korea, hospital says

CINCINNATI -- Otto Warmbier has died, University of Cincinnati Medical Center announced Monday.

Warmbier died at 2:20 p.m. Monday, days after he was released from captivity in North Korea. He was surrounded by family members at the time of his death, hospital officials said.

In a statement released by the hospital, family members said Warmbier had been unable to speak, see or react to verbal commands since his return to Cincinnati June 13.

"He looked very uncomfortable – almost anguished," family members said. "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."

Family members thanked the hospital's staff for the care they provided Warmbier but said " 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."

"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," the family said. "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."

Earlier, doctors treating Warmbier had said he suffered "severe neurological injury" and that he was in a state of "unresponsive wakefulness."

We laugh, but I guarantee that's what the Norks are telling their people right now.

unless someone defects that was directly involved in it nobody will ever know, something I read this morning said that if he did have botulism and took a sleeping pill the combination could cause him to stop breathing, thus the oxygen deprivation that caused the brain damage. But the article also said there was zero chance he would ever get his brain back so it is prob a blessing he passed on.
