When crime pays, this is what happens:
A KRT news reader said in a Friday broadcast that "according to information available from a relevant institution, Warmbier Otto Frederick, student of Virginia University of the U.S., was arrested while perpetrating a hostile act against the DPRK after entering it under the guise of tourist for the purpose of bringing down the foundation of its single-minded unity with the tacit connivance of the U.S. government and under its manipulation. He is now under investigation."
I will admit that going to North Korea as a tourist is suspicious. It's clearly the worst park in the Commieworld system.
But a "hostile act" in North Korea could have consisted of handing out a choco pie (which I actually saw in the Asian food section of my grocery store the last time I was there--I almost bought them) to a North Korean.
I'd pay good money to hear our president tell the North Koreans that we want Frederick back alive or Kim Jong-Un dead.
