No conclusion yet on U.S. student's cause of death

North Korea on Thursday called US President Donald Trump a "psychopath" as tensions soar following the death of American student Otto Warmbier, who was evacuated in a coma from North Korean detention last week.

The cause of Warmbier's death is not known, and his family objected to an autopsy, a request the Hamilton County Coroner's Office in OH honored. It said his medical records from an air ambulance service that brought him to OH and from the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he was hospitalised until his death Monday, have been reviewed, and the treating physicians have been interviewed extensively.

"No conclusions about the cause and manner of Mr. Warmbier's death have been drawn at this time as there are additional medical records and imaging to review and people to interview", the statement said.

The nationally distributed story notes, "Earlier this week, Jay Klein, a rising sophomore at DePauw University, recalled joining the Wyoming High soccer team as a freshman and getting to know Warmbier as one of the friendliest, most spirited seniors playing".

"All those that wish to join his family in celebrating his life are cordially invited", said the Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum.

In a news conference before Warmbier's death, they said they could not speculate on the cause of his condition.

Wambier's parents did not cite a specific cause of death but blamed "awful, torturous mistreatment" by North Korea.

His treating physicians said he suffered from unresponsive wakefulness, a condition also known as persistent vegetative state. In 2013, he was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor for committing unspecified "hostile acts" in the country. He could not speak or move voluntarily and his doctors said he suffered extensive brain damage.

His language was echoed by South Korean President Moon Jae-In, who said in an interview ahead of a White House visit next week that North Korea bears responsibility for the student's death.

"While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi and China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out".

The tweet, which came hours before the United States and China were set to meet in Washington to talk about North Korea, caught multiple Trump administration officials off guard, leaving them scrambling as they tried to figure out what exactly the President meant, CNN reported.
