Otto Warmbier, 22, U.S. student released from North Korea last week, has passed away, his family says.
What the hell did they do to him, I thought they held these folks as bargaining chips?
Otto Warmbier has passed away this afternoon. May he rest in peace. ????????
And may Kim Jong-un rot in hell. ????#RIPOtto

He returned home to Cincinnati, Ohio, on June 13 in a coma after being “brutalized and terrorized by the pariah regime,” his family said in a statement.
After consulting President Trump, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson instructed Yun to prepare to travel to North Korea to bring Warmbier back to the United States, according to the State Department, which organized a medical team and an airplane to travel to North Korea.
North Korea told a US official that Warmbier contracted botulism and slipped into the coma after taking a sleeping pill.
When he arrived in Ohio, he was transported by ambulance to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center where doctors discovered he had “severe injury to all regions of the brain” and described his current condition as “unresponsive wakefulness.”
Doctors have little information about what happened to him prior to his release as they’ve had no contact with North Korean medical authorities. But they said Warmbier showed no current signs of botulism.
