Police are now calling the death of a Clay County Teen who was found in the Red Bird River a criminal investigation.

Officials aren't releasing the details of 19-year-old Matt Swafford's autopsy Wednesday.

He had been gagged and bound.

Swafford's brother, Sam, and their friend Josh Mosley are still considered 'persons of interest.'

    Poor boy and poor family if the brother had anything to do with it. A real sad situation.

    Not calling it a criminal investigation but the boy's hands and feet were tied up and he was gagged with a bandana?

    Another senseless murder. I hope that Matthew was saved when he died.
