[6:15 PM] Hall, Shannon

The death of Missouri college student Riley Strain appears to be “accidental,” Metro Nashville police told WKRN.

Metro Nashville police officials did not immediately confirm the autopsy results to The Tennessean, but told WKRN the initial investigation was completed Saturday.

Strain’s body was discovered early Friday morning about eight miles from where he was last seen in downtown Nashville, after a two-week search for the missing 22-year-old.

He disappeared after being kicked out of Luke’s 32 Bridge Food and Drink downtown while vacationing on Broadway with fraternity brothers.

Strain was seen on surveillance footage walking around downtown, sometimes stumbling.

He had a friendly exchange with a police officer near 1st Avenue North and Gay Street. Her bank card was discovered near the Cumberland River on March 17, five days before her remains were recovered.

About 50 people gathered Friday evening for a candlelight vigil commemorating Strain.

Strain’s parents told reporters at a news conference Friday that they were grateful for the community’s help in finding their son.

“I’m just asking your moms to hold your babies tight tonight, please.” said his mother Michelle Whiteid. “Please for me. Hold your babies tight tonight.”
