WYOMING, Ohio -- A public funeral service will be held for Otto Warmbier Thursday morning.
Warmbier, 22, died Monday afternoon, days after he was released from a 17-month-long incarceration in North Korea. Doctors said he had suffered "severe neurological injury" before his return to the U.S.
Warmbier was a native of Wyoming and a graduate of Wyoming High School. He was a student at the University of Virginia when he was imprisoned by North Korean authorities during a visit to the country last year.
