Glee star, Naya Rivera's cause of death identified as accidental drowning

Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office released the autopsy’s findings on

Tuesday, July 14, confirming that the body found on Monday was the 33-year-old actress.

‘The circumstances and visual characteristics all indicated that the body

was that of Naya Rivera and the identity has been confirmed by dental comparison.

The autopsy findings are consistent with a drowning and the condition of the body is

consistent with the time that she was submerged.

‘No traumatic injuries or disease processes were identified at autopsy.

There is no indication from the investigation or examination that drugs or

alcohol played a role in the decedent’s death, but specimens will be submitted for

toxicology testing,’ the report states.

The Glee star went missing during a boating trip with her 4-year-old son, Josey Dorsey on July 8.

Before she was found, her son told police that his mum “jumped into the water but

didn’t come back up” after he was found floating on the boat alone.

Naya’s body was recovered from the northeast portion of Lake Piru, located 50 miles north of Los Angeles, on Monday after she went missing last week.
