"Although we had no reason at all to show mercy to such a criminal of the enemy state, we provided him with medical treatments and care with all sincerity on a humanitarian basis until his return to the USA", the North argued after Warmbier's death.
An examination by the OH medical examiner's office said Warmbier's body appeared "well-nourished", with no physical abnormalities beyond some minor scars of indeterminate age, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Mr Warmbier's parents could not be reached for comment on the coroner's report.
Warmbier's manner of death remains undetermined. "They kidnapped Otto. They tortured him". Otto's body was described as "well-developed, well-nourished" and his teeth were reportedly in good condition. They said Warmbier, a 22-year-old University of Virginia student, was howling, making an "involuntary, inhuman sound", "staring blankly into space jerking violently", and was blind and deaf with his head shaved.
"They destroyed him", Cindy Warmbier said. As we looked at him and tried to comfort him, it looked like someone had taken pliers and tried to rearrange his bottom teeth.
The coroner's findings are consistent with remarks made by Cincinnati doctors in June, who found no evidence of trauma or fractures after examining Warmbier immediately after he arrived in the US.
North Korean officials have said Warmbier was released on humanitarian grounds and had been treated respectfully.
