Early stories suggested there might be a connection between Rodman's arrival in Pyongyang Tuesday and North Korea's release of the comatose Otto Warmbier. In March 2016, a North Korean kangaroo court, after a one hour show trial, concluded, according to the state-run North Korean Central News Agency, that Warmbier had committed a crime "pursuant to the USA government's hostile policy toward [the North], in a bid to impair the unity of its people after entering it as a tourist". It wasn't immediately clear whether his release was connected to Rodman's visit.
A North Korean foreign ministry official said Warmbier was released and left the country Tuesday morning. His parents say he's on a Medivac flight on his way home. Nauert said the last consular visit to Warmbier, by Swedish diplomats, was March 2.
We also learn that it is most unlikely that Dennis Rodman was a part of the discussions about Mr. Warmbier or the arrangements for his return.
Warmbier's plane landed at Cincinnati Municipal Lunken Airport at around 10.15 p.m. local time, according to a Reuters witness. His family were told that he contracted botulism after the trial, and was given a sleeping pill from which he never awoke.
"We pray for him and pray for his family", Shannon said, without providing other information.

Now, parallel to this track, basketball showman Rodman has arrived in Pyongyang, wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the logo of a cryptocurrency set up for marijuana marketers.
Before arriving this time, Rodman told reporters that Trump would be happy with the trip because he was "trying to accomplish something that we both need", prompting speculation that he may be operating as an unofficial envoy. "Maybe Dennis is a lot better than what we have", Trump was quoted as saying.
"I can't even imagine", she said.
Mr. Rodman is a Hall of Fame professional basketball player who formed a personal relationship with the diminutive North Korean dictator Kim several years ago, traveling to North Korea to give basketball demonstrations. "I'm not aware of any message that was sent".
North Korean authorities said they had security footage of him trying to steal a banner containing a political slogan that was hanging from the walls of his Pyongyang hotel.
