The U.S. college student North Korea sent home in a coma last week has died, according to a statement his parents released Monday.

North Korea arrested Otto Frederick Warmbier, a University of Virginia student who visited the North as a tourist, in January 2016 for alleged hostile acts against the state. Pyongyang contends that Warmbier attempted to pilfer a propaganda poster. He was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in a tearful public trial two months later.

He was released last week, but he returned home in a coma. Doctors revealed that Warmbier had suffered “severe injuries to all regions of the brain.” He remained completely unresponsive.

Warmbier passed away Monday afternoon. “The awful torturous mistreatment of our son received at the hands of the North Koreans ensured that no other outcome was possible beyond the sad one we experienced today,” the family’s statement read.

He “has completed his journey home,” the statement concluded.

President Donald Trump expressed his condolences to the family of Otto Warmbier after the American college student passed away Monday following his detention in North Korea.

“Melania and I offer our deepest condolences to the family of Otto Warmbier on his untimely passing.  There is nothing more tragic for a parent than to lose a child in the prime of life,” Trump said in an official statement.  “Our thoughts and prayers are with Otto’s family and friends, and all who loved him.”

Warmbier, 22, was arrested and imprisoned in North Korea after being found guilty of stealing a propaganda poster. He was released last week while in a coma for which the exact causes remain unknown.

Doctors who were treating him in Cincinnati said that Warmbier suffered a catastrophic brain injury shortly after his conviction around April 2016. He was detained in North Korea for 17 months.

Trump said in his statement: “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. The United States once again condemns the brutality of the North Korean regime as we mourn its latest victim.”
