Parents of Otto Warmbier file wrongful death lawsuit against N. Korea

The parents of Otto Warmbier are suing North Korea in a 22-page complaint filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. 

Warmbier was a college student from Wyoming, Ohio, who was jailed in North Korea and died shortly after he was returned to the United States in a coma. 

Fred and Cindy Warmbier, in the lawsuit, accuse Kim Jong Un's "criminal" regime of brutally torturing and murdering the 22-year-old during his 17-month-long captivity from Jan. 2, 2016, through June 13, 2017. 

Otto Warmbier died on June 19, 2017, in Cincinnati. 

"Otto was taken hostage, kept as a prisoner for political purposes, used as a pawn and singled out for exceptionally harsh and brutal treatment by Kim Jong Un. Kim and his regime have portrayed themselves as innocent, while they intentionally destroyed our son's life. This lawsuit is another step in holding North Korea accountable for its barbaric treatment of Otto and our family," said Fred Warmbier in a statement.

Last summer, Fred Warmbier told the hosts of "Fox & Friends" and CNN "it looked like someone had taken pliers and tried to rearrange" Otto's bottom teeth. He said he noticed this while examining his son after he returned to the U.S. in June. 

The Hamilton County Coroner's Office disputed that account, our news partners have reported. County Coroner Dr. Lakshmi Sammarco said she did not see "any evidence of trauma" to Otto's teeth upon his return from North Korea and that she was surprised by the Warmbier's statements. 

The Warmbiers also attended President Trump's State of the Union address in January. 

"You are powerful witnesses to a menace that threatens our world, and your strength inspires truly us all," Trump said to the Warmbiers. "Tonight, we pledge to honor Otto's memory with total American resolve." 

Fred Warmbier accompanied Vice President Mike Pence to the Olympics in South Korea.
