After Riley Strain’s body was discovered without a wallet, clothes, or boots, his family has requested a second autopsy.

In spite of the Metro Nashville Police Department’s statement that there doesn’t seem to be any foul play in Riley Strain’s death, his family has requested a second autopsy.

Riley Strain, a student at the University of Missouri, was discovered dead without pants or cowboy boots. And his wallet was gone. Days after the police declared that his death appeared to be “accidental,” his family is now searching for explanations.
Family friend Chris Dingman revealed in an appearance on NewsNation’s Elizabeth Vargas Reports that “the only thing that was found with him, as the police stated in the report, was the watch and the shirt.”

Strain, 22, was ejected from Luke’s 32 Bridge and was last seen missing on March 8. A few days later, his body was discovered in West Nashville’s Cumberland River.

Despite the statement from the Metro Nashville Police Department that there doesn’t seem to be any foul play in his death, Strain’s family has already requested a second autopsy. Dingman remarked, “The family deserves more answers than we have.”

To add to the confusion, a medical examiner reported that Strain’s first autopsy revealed no water in his lungs. This made people wonder about the circumstances surrounding his demise. According to Dingman, “water in the lungs usually indicates that they were alive when they entered the water.”

In order to gain a clearer picture of the situation, police have stated that they still need to speak with members of the homeless camp that is close to the scene where Strain’s body was discovered. “I believe that someone exists who is aware of the true events that transpired that evening,” Dingman remarked.
