Dateline NBC devoted a full one hour episode to discuss the death of Chris Jenkins.
As of today the Chris Jenkins murder case remains open in the Minneapolis Police Homicide unit, but unfortunately there are no suspects.

As you said, they first thought it was a drowning but when the detectives took a look at Chris Jenkins' death, they discovered that the position of his body and other physical evidence proved that the college student didn't drown accidentally. The cause of death on Jenkins' death certificate was changed to "homicide."

The Jenkins family wondered if it was the work of a serial killer. The Jenkins case was one of several in the Midwest of college students and other young adults who disappeared in recent years, often after nights out that involved drinking. Some of them were found dead in rivers, and there had been speculation that there might be a link.
