Riley Strain, a missing college student from Missouri, has been found deceased in a Nashville river. The Metro Nashville Police Department located Strain’s body in the Cumberland River in West Nashville early in the morning on Friday.

Preliminary investigations by the police did not indicate any signs of foul play or trauma. However, an autopsy has been scheduled to determine the cause of his death.

The 22-year-old was last seen on March 8 after being asked to leave Luke Bryan’s 32 Bridge Bar in downtown Nashville. Before his disappearance, he was captured on surveillance cameras crossing the street from the bar and later on another security camera.

In addition, Strain had a brief encounter with the police during this time. The following day, his fraternity brothers in Nashville reported him missing, prompting a large-scale search operation.

Despite extensive efforts, authorities were unable to locate Strain or any leads until March 16 when his bank card was discovered near the banks of the Cumberland River.

The discovery of Riley Strain’s body is a heartbreaking development in the search for the missing college student. As the investigation continues, our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.
