Naya Rivera's Death: Police Believe She Saved Her Son, But Didn't Have Enough Energy to Save Herself

Naya Rivera's Death: Police Believe She Saved Her Son, But Didn't Have Enough Energy to Save Herself

Naya Rivera has been confirmed dead at the age of 33 after her body was discovered in Lake Piru, five days after she went missing.

The Glee actress went boating with her four-year-old son Josey on Wednesday (July 8) and he was later found alone in the boat that they had rented. He told authorities that they went swimming and his mom never got back on the boat.

During a press conference to announce Naya‘s death, the authorities said that they it’s currently speculation, but they are working with the assumption that the boat drifted away in the lake’s current. The police believe that Naya used all of her energy to put her son back in the boat and she didn’t have enough energy to save herself.

Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub said, “It would be speculation to say at this point. There are a lot of currents on the lake that appear particularly in the afternoon. We believe it was mid-afternoon when she disappeared, the idea perhaps being that the boat started drifting, it was unanchored, and that she mustered enough energy to get her son back onto the boat, but not enough to save herself.”

Ayub also said there is no sign of foul play and no indication that this was a suicide.

Shortly before the press conference happened, members of the cast of Glee visited the lake and held hands on the shore during a vigil for Naya.
