American student who died after release from North Korea mourned at funeral

"A funeral service was held Thursday morning at Wyoming High School in Wyoming, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati, where Warmbier was the salutatorian of his 2013 graduating class. The service was open to the public but closed to the press, according to a press release from the funeral home.

Hundreds of people were seen lined up outside the school's Pendery Center for the Arts, waiting to enter the auditorium for the service. Joseph Yun, the State Department's special representative for North Korea, and Deputy Secretary of State Joseph Sullivan were in attendance.

Warmbier's belongings from his time in North Korea, including the jacket he wore during his trial in Pyongyang, were displayed at the service.

Bagpipes blared after the service as his casket was carried out of the building toward a hearse, followed by a long line of mourners.

Nearby trees were adorned with blue and white ribbons, the high school's colors, in honor of Warmbier.

He was then buried at the Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum in Cincinnati."
