Family: Freed student who died has ‘completed his journey’ Published: June 20, 2017 4:57 AM EDT Kim Jong Un reappears in public, ending absence amid health rumors Recommended North Korea blows up liaison office in Kaesong used for talks with South CINCINNATI (AP) The family of an American college student who died days after being released from North Korea in a coma says the 22-year-old “has completed his journey home.”Otto Warmbier died Monday, relatives said in a statement. They did not cite a specific cause of death.“Unfortunately, the awful, 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,” his parents said.Doctors had described Warmbier’s condition as a state of “unresponsive wakefulness” and said he suffered a “severe neurological injury” of unknown cause. He arrived in Ohio on June 13 after being held for more than 17 months.The University of Virginia student was accused of trying to steal a propaganda banner while visiting with a tour group and was convicted of subversion. He was put before North Korean officials and journalists for a televised “confession.”“I have made the worst mistake of my life!” he exclaimed, choking up as he begged to be allowed to reunite with his parents and two younger siblings.He was sentenced in March 2016 to 15 years in prison with hard labor. His family said it was told he had been in a coma since soon after his sentencing.Doctors said he suffered extensive loss of brain tissue and “profound weakness and contraction” of his muscles, arms and legs. His eyes opened and blinked but without any sign that he understood verbal commands or his surroundings.Unresponsive wakefulness is a new medical term for persistent vegetative state. Patients in this condition who have survived a coma can open their eyes, but they do not respond to commands. People can live in a state of unresponsive wakefulness for many years with the chances of recovery depending on the extent of the brain injury.North Korea said Warmbier went into a coma after contracting botulism and taking a sleeping pill. Doctors in Cincinnati said they found no active sign of botulism or evidence of beatings.In a White House statement, President Donald Trump said, “A lot of bad things happened, but at least we got him home to be with his parents.” He called North Korea a “brutal regime.”Warmbier grew up in the Cincinnati suburb of Wyoming. He was salutatorian of his 2013 class at a highly rated high school and was on the soccer team.Wyoming City Schools released a statement saying it was “deeply saddened” by his death.“The countless contributions he made to his school and community through his leadership, actions, and limitless enthusiasm will be felt far into the future,” the school district said.Warmbier’s sophomore English teacher said he would be “dearly missed.”Warmbier had planned to study in China in his third year of college and heard about Chinese travel companies offering trips to North Korea. He was leaving North Korea on Jan. 2, 2016, when he was detained at the airport.The U.S. Department of State warns against travel to North Korea. While nearly all Americans who have been there have left without incident, visitors can be seized and face lengthy incarceration for what might seem like minor infractions.Jeffrey Fowle, also from Ohio, was detained in 2014 when he intentionally left a Bible in a nightclub. Fowle was freed after six months. He said he was kept isolated most of the time but not physically abused. He and others freed from North Korea have said they were coached and coerced into giving confessions.Three Americans remain held in North Korea. The U.S. government accuses North Korea of using such detainees as political pawns. North Korea accuses Washington and South Korea of sending spies to overthrow its government.

With the new Red Stripe Premier League season on the horizon, Arnett Gardens’ head coach Jerome Waite is urging the club’s supporters to exercise patience, noting that the club is determined to build a team that will feature prominently in the league for years to come. Waite stated that the club is constructing a youthful team, but pointed out that present and future success remain a priority for the Junglists. Arnett Gardens, who made it to the quarter-finals of the RSPL last season, where they were knocked out by Cavalier, have released two senior players in the off-season in Ranike Anderson and Jabuer Johnson. Waite told The Gleaner that the club brought in a number of talented young players in the preseason, as they aim to build a competitive squad for the future. “One of the things that we targeted in the preseason is players between the ages of 18-23, because we are talking about long-term development, and at the same time, ensuring that we reached the top six,” said Waite. Opportunity to showcase talent “We are looking forward to marketing these young players and, hopefully, they can be given an opportunity to showcase their talent at the next level overseas,” he said. The veteran coach underlines that the club’s supporters are always eager to win, but he said, the game have changed a lot over the past decade and, therefore, one must give the youngsters a chance to showcase their talents. “Everybody always looking for Arnett Gardens to win the Premier League every year. It is not a situation where it is not possible, but we will have to take into consideration where development of these young players is concerned,” added Waite. “They will be working with a few senior, experienced players so that they can improve from time to time,” he said. “It will be a work in progress because it is left to be seen as to how fast these youngsters grasp what is expected of them. As you know, the culture in Arnett Gardens is different from the other clubs, because our spectators are hungry at all times, not only to win games, but to win trophies,” he said. Waite noted that his coaching staff has been working intensely to improve the fitness of their players ahead of the start of the season, which kicks off in September. “We are still continuing the conditioning of our team because we don’t start anything technically or tactically as yet and so things are looking good so far for us,” Waite stated.
