We regret to inform you that the body of Riley Strain, a 22-year-old Missouri college student who went missing two weeks ago, has been found in a Nashville river. The Metro Nashville Police Department retrieved Strain’s body from the Cumberland River in West Nashville early Friday morning, around 7:30 a.m.

While authorities have not discovered any evidence of foul play, an autopsy is still pending to determine the cause of death. Strain was last seen on March 8, after he was asked to leave Luke Bryan’s 32 Bridge Bar in downtown Nashville. Surveillance footage captured him crossing the street near the bar and engaging with the police shortly after.

The following day, Strain’s fraternity brothers, who were with him in Nashville, reported him missing. Despite extensive search efforts, it wasn’t until March 16 that a breakthrough occurred. Search teams found Strain’s bank card along the banks of the Cumberland River.

This is a heartbreaking development, and our thoughts and prayers go out to Riley’s family and friends during this incredibly difficult time. We will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.
