The North Korean government handed Warmbier over to USA authorities in a vegetative state last week and his death has spurred calls for a U.S. response from several lawmakers. The death last week of American student Warmbier, who fell into a coma after being arrested in North Korea, has raised questions about whether his tour agency was adequately prepared for its trips into the hard-line communist state.
An Ohio coroner will not perform an autopsy on the US student who died after being held prisoner in North Korea for 17 months and will perform an external examination of the body at the family's request, the agency said on Tuesday.The Hamilton County Coroner's Office was conferring with doctors at the Cincinnati hospital where Otto Warmbier, 22, died on Monday, before reaching any conclusions about his death, investigator Daryl Zornes said.Investigators were still reviewing radiological images and awaiting additional medical records requested by the coroner, Zornes told Reuters.
The University of Virginia student was accused of trying to steal a propaganda banner while visiting and was convicted of subversion.
"We can not know for sure that North Korea killed Mr Warmbier, but I believe it is quite clear that they have a heavy responsibility in the process that led to his death", Mr Moon told CBS television's "This Morning". His family is blaming North Korea for "awful, torturous mistreatment".
Senator John McCain took a hardline stance, putting pressure on the White House to take action. "So I would not suggest that we're moving any closer", White House press secretary Sean Spicer said at a press briefing Tuesday.

"Working with such a country, we must achieve the goal of the complete dismantlement of North Korea's nuclear program". On Tuesday, a US official said USA spy satellites had detected movements recently at North Korea's nuclear test site near a tunnel entrance, but it was unclear if Pyongyang was preparing for a new nuclear test, perhaps to coincide with Wednesday's high-level talks. The route to inflicting significant economic pain on Kim's government remains through China. But the North has kept up its rapid pace of missile launches, drawing another U.N. Security Council resolution this month and additional sanctions.
Last month, California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff and his Republican colleague Rep. Joe Wilson of SC introduced the North Korea Travel Control Act. Thornton cited Chinese restrictions on imports of North Korean coal as "notable" progress.
He also tweeted that "the USA once again condemns the brutality of the North Korean regime as we mourn its latest victim". Such a move risks fraying relations between the world's two biggest economies.
The message from Chinese media: jU.S. t make sure that doesn't have an impact on Beijing.
The Chinese state-run Global Times warned in an editorial that if Washington imposes sanctions against Chinese enterprises "it will lead to grave friction between China and the U.S".
