Naya Rivera Dead at 33 - 'Glee' Star's Body Is Found in Lake Piru

Naya Rivera‘s body has sadly been found on Monday (July 13) after search efforts were underway at Lake Piru in California, where she went missing on Wednesday (July 8).

The 33-year-old Glee star went boating with her son Josey, 4, where hours later, he was found alone on the boat. He told authorities his mom never came back after going for a swim.

At a press conference, police confirmed, “We are confident that the body we have found is that of Naya Rivera.” They added, “There is no indication that this was foul play and no indication that this was a suicide.”

In addition, an autopsy will be performed and a positive identification will be made through Naya‘s dental records.

One day after search efforts were started, authorities revealed they now considered the search for Naya a “recovery” mission and she had been presumed dead.

The local Sheriff’s office also gave an update on how Naya‘s son with her ex husband Ryan Dorsey was doing after this whole tragedy.

On Monday (July 13), Naya‘s body was recovered from the lake after days of search efforts. Her Glee co-stars have already been tweeting tribute messages for her throughout the day.

Naya was part of the original cast of Glee, where she starred on the show as Santana Lopez. Since then, she has also starred on Step Up: High Water, Devious Maids, and more.

Our continued thoughts are with Naya Rivera’s friends, family, and loved ones during this difficult time.
