The American student who was imprisoned in North Korea for 17 months and died soon after coming back to the US in a coma. His death rapidly escalating tensions between President Trump and Kim Jong Un.
The report released Wednesday revealing Wambier died from lack of oxygen and blood to the brain. And that the 22-year-old's death was due to an unknown injury that occurred more than a year earlier.>> As far as wounds, there are a few small scars that we documented. There was one that we really couldn't explain for medical instrumentation which some of the other scars we could.
>> Warmbier's parents claimed in a recent interview with Fox News that their son had been tortured and his teeth had been rearranged. The Coroner saying on Wednesday, there was no evidence of such trauma or any broken bones adding, quote, we don't know what happened to him and this is the bottom line.
Only an external examination of the body rather than a full autopsy was conducted at the request of the Warmbier family, who could not be reached for comment. The University of Virginia student had been traveling with a tour group, and had been arrested at the airport in Pyongyang for trying to take a propaganda poster from his hotel, and was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor.
North Korea had blamed botulism and the ingestion of a sleeping pill for Warmbier's catatonic state, dismissing torture claims.
