Coro­ner de­nies Warmbier claim

Warwick Daily News - - WORLD | NEWS -

NORTH Korea has called Don­ald Trump an “old lu­natic” for “ex­ploit­ing” the death of Otto Warmbier and de­nied the 22-year-old was tor­tured in cus­tody. The US Pres­i­dent said Warmbier (pic­tured) was “tor­tured be­yond be­lief” by North Korea, after an in­ter­view from his par­ents on US tele­vi­sion. Fred Warmbier said his son had been tor­tured and “his bot­tom teeth looked like they had taken a pair of pli­ers and re­ar­ranged them”. That led the Hamilton County Coro­ner to say there were no bro­ken bones and “no trauma to the teeth” found dur­ing the med­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tion in June.
