Warmbiers Receiving Partial Payment From Suit Filed Over Son Otto’s Death

WYOMING, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC and ONN) – A federal judge rules that the parents of Otto Warmbier should receive about $240,000 in compensation from the North Korean government.

It’s a partial payment of the $500 million awarded to Fred and Cindy Warmbier in 2018.

That partial payment was from money seized from a North Korean bank.

Their son Otto who was imprisoned in brutal conditions in 2016 after visiting North Korea was returned to the U.S. in critical condition.

He died a short time later.
