The Hamilton County Ohio Coroner, Dr. Lakshmi Sammarco basically tells the world that Kim Jong-un is going to get away with murder and quite possibly torture in the case of Otto Warmbier.
A team of medical doctors of which she was a part was unable to determine the cause of death and believed that an autopsy would do nothing to shed any light on what had happened.
She stated that there was brain damage caused by a lack of oxygen which could have occurred by either discontinuing blood flow to the brain or by his having stopped breathing. She says, “And what caused either one of those possible events, we wouldn’t know.” They don’t have enough evidence to draw any concrete conclusions.
She said that for someone who has been bedridden for more than a year, Warmbier’s body and skin were in excellent condition. There was no evidence of bed sores which means he had to have had round the clock care while in N. Korea.
She notes that there was one scar that they could not explain through medical instrumentation, unlike his other scars. But they have no means of determining its cause and there was nothing aside from that unexplained scar that would indicate conclusively that Warmbier was tortured.
Sammarco stated, “All five doctors in this office had a discussion on, ‘What do you think could be gained by doing an autopsy in this particular case?'” keeping in mind that they believe the insult to him, the severe damage, happened over a year before he came to the US.
She says they felt like there was nothing that would be gained from an autopsy so they honored the family’s wishes. She says they’re never going to know what happened unless a witness comes forward and tells what they know. That isn’t likely to happen while Kim Jong-un is in power.
