Warmbier returned from North Korea last week in a coma, and his father Fred Warmbier denounced the "pariah" regime that brutalized his son.
Authorities in Kim Jong-Un's North said he had fallen ill with food poisoning and taken a sleeping tablet - which doctors in the U.S. find no evidence of. Unfortunately, the very 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.
"Unfortunately, the terrible 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", they said. "Surrounded by his loving family, Otto died today at 2:20 p.m".
"It would be easy at a moment like this to focus on all that we lost - future time that won't be spent with a warm, engaging, brilliant young man whose curiosity and enthusiasm for life knew no bounds", the family said. But we choose to focus on the time that we were given to be with this remarkable person.
President Trump offered condolences to the Warmbier family in a statement, saying that "Otto's fate deepens my Administration's determination to prevent such tragedies from befalling innocent people at the hands of regimes that do not respect the rule of law or basic human decency".
His parents said they were only informed of his condition a week ago.
"He looked very uncomfortable - nearly anguished".
"Although we would never hear his voce again, within a day the countenance of his face changed - he was at a peace. He was home and we believe he could sense that", his parents said in the statement.

"We thank everyone around the world who has kept him and our family in their thoughts and prayers".
The University of Virginia student was arrested in Pyongyang in January 2016, and as we have reported, was "accused of trying to steal a propaganda poster from an employee area of his hotel".
The bright student previously graduated and studied economics and commerce with a minor in global sustainability.
"We hold North Korea accountable for Otto Warmbier's unjust imprisonment, and demand the release of three other Americans who have been illegally detained".
However, Cincinnati doctors caring for Warmbier said they found no indication of remaining botulism - but they also said it's likely the toxin would no longer be in the body after more than a year.
After being freed from North Korea on June 13, he had been in a state of "unresponsive wakefulness," according to his doctors.
Japan's chief cabinet secretary Yoshihide Suga reassured the public that both Japan and the United States were committed to maintaining regional deference in the face of the North Korean threat, despite the naval incident on Saturday.
