The North Korean official denied that the country had tortured Warmbier, contending that the 22-year-old left North Korea in "his normal state of health indicators", and that his death is a "mystery". However, North Korea is now saying that they are the real victim in all this.

Warmbier, who was imprisoned on charges that he attempted to steal a propaganda banner while touring North Korea, was already in a coma by the time the hermit kingdom's officials returned him to the United States last week.

American doctors said Warmbier's condition was likely the result of a heart attack that halted blood flow to his brain. After a sham trial, he was sentenced to 15 years hard labor in North Korean prison for "hostile acts" against the state. She said she loved her "hard-working, sincere, non-arrogant college students, " but added: "If you knew some of these kids, you'd be appalled".

"Unfortunately, the bad, 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", Fred Warmbier said while announcing his son's death. And I said to them, 'we would need his, you know, a release, some type of good faith, if we're ever going to do some type of future sports relations ...

"This college kid never should have been detained in the first place", said Portman, who met secretly with North Korean officials in NY last December to press for Warmbier's release.

"Both sides reaffirm that they will strive for the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", a consensus document released by the official Xinhua news agency said. The agent, Chris Volo, said he believes Rodman's trips to North Korea "had a lot to do" with Warmbier's release. No one knew that. "Some good things came of this trip".

The situation has already clouded the foreign policy the USA has toward North Korea. South Korea said the women defected on their own, while North Korea claimed they were deceived and abducted.

North Korea still holds Kim Sang Duk and Kim Hak-song, academics who worked at the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology, and a businessman named Kim Dong Chul.

"Is it wrong of me to think that Otto Warmbier got exactly what he deserved?" she wrote.
