Members of Ohio's Congressional Delegation Mourn Otto Warmbier

Just days after being medically evacuated from North Korea, Ohio native and University of Virginia student Otto Warmbier passed away on Monday afternoon at the age of 22.

Warmbier, who was last seen in public in March 2016 when he was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor after allegedly stealing a propaganda sign from his hotel, had been in a coma for over a year. It is unknown as to what exactly caused Warmbier's brain injury.

Here's how members of Ohio's congressional delegation (and Gov. John Kasich) reacted to his death:

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH)

Sen. Rob Portman (D-OH)

Gov. John Kasich (R-OH)

Rep. Steve Chabot (R-OH)

This post will likely be updated as more representatives express their condolences.
