Glee actress Naya Rivera laid to rest in Los Angeles

"Back in February, a few weeks before all production ground to a halt, the "Glee" alumna filmed a guest-judge appearance on "Sugar Rush" in Los Angeles, sitting alongside the show's host Hunter March and professional chef judges Candace Nelson and Adriano Zumbo". Days later, her body was recovered by divers as her former Glee co-stars and family prayed by the lakeside.

The certificate confirmed that the actress' cause of death was drowning, and states that she died in a matter of minutes, with "no other significant conditions" contributing to her death.


Yahoo Entertainment has reached out to Ventura County's public information officer and will update this story when we hear back. However, when she didn't return at the appointed time, a boat rental company employee went out to look for the boat and found it with just Josey aboard.

Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub said: "We know from speaking with her son, that he and Naya swam in the lake together at some point during their journey".


He said that there are several currents that can pop up in the lake, especially in the afternoon, which is when Rivera and her four-year-old son were on Lake Piru. She had no underlying ailments, and no drugs or alcohol were found in her system.

Rivera's ex-husband - and Josey's father - Ryan Dorsey broke his silence on social media about the accident one day after Rivera's burial.
