Coroner still probing death of US student held by N. Korea


Earlier Tuesday, Trump seemed to imply the Obama administration could have prevented Warmbier's death. They said scans showed extensive loss in all regions of Warmbier's brain and they found no evidence of botulism.

The US often sends powerful warplanes in times of heightened animosities with North Korea, and flew B-1B bombers several times this year as North Korea conducted a series of banned ballistic missile tests.

Assistant Secretary of State Susan Thornton said USA officials are "going to give the DPRK/North Korea issue top priority in our discussions, aiming to advance concrete cooperation with China towards a peaceful resolution of the nuclear and missile threat from North Korea".

"All those that wish to join his family in celebrating his life are cordially invited", said the Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum. He was salutatorian of his 2013 class at a highly rated high school and was on the soccer team. "While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out", Trump tweeted, before adding, "At least I know China tried!".

Trump's announcement could signal a new policy shift toward Pyongyang and comes one day after 22-year-old former University of Virginia student Otto Warmbier died. He died six days later surrounded by relatives in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. Moon expressed condolences to the Warmbier family and the American people.

The government of China, North Korea's main ally, said Warmbier's death was a tragedy.

As U.S. tensions with North Korea intensify, the White House pushed China to put pressure on companies that do business in Pyongyang ahead of high-level security talks between Washington and Beijing Wednesday. The U.S. government says North Korea is using such detainees as political pawns. John McCain, R-Ariz., proposed that prospective American travelers complete a form declaring they won't hold the USA government responsible for what happens.

Leaders are now weighing in on his death condemning the actions of North Korea.

The Hamilton County Coroner's Office in OH confirmed that it received and examined the 22-year-old's body after his death on Monday.

Warmbier's parents haven't cited a cause of death, but "awful, torturous mistreatment" by North Korea.

Warmbier's death came just days after he was released by the North Korean government and returned to the United States suffering from what USA doctors described as extensive brain damage.

But the death of American student Otto Warmbier - who the regime imprisoned - seems to have changed that.

Though North Korea has claimed that Warmbier's coma was due to botulism and a sleeping pill, his family and doctors have rejected it.

The tour operator said that it was denied any opportunity to meet with Warmbier after his detention, and that the way it was handled was "appalling".

According to Ohio's Hamilton County Coroner's Office, the family of Otto Warmbier expressly objected to having an autopsy performed on the recently deceased young man, and that "objection to an autopsy was honored".
