New Report Raises Questions About Otto Wambier’s Death After Release By North Korea

(Cincinnati, OH) – A new report is raising questions about the death of an American college student just days after his release from North Korea. An article in GQ magazine says 22-year-old Otto Warmbier suffered fatal brain damage immediately after his trial on charges of stealing a poster from a North Korean hotel.

The story says medical experts think it’s unlikely Warmbier was tortured during his 15 months in captivity despite claims by the Trump administration and his own parents.

Instead, the GQ report suggests Warmbier may have injured himself, believing he would spend the next 15 years at hard labor in North Korea.
