Naya Rivera's Official Cause of Death Is Revealed

Naya Rivera‘s cause of death has been confirmed as drowning.

In a press release from the Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office, it states the official cause is from drowning.

“The circumstances and visual characteristics all indicated that the body was that of Naya Rivera and the identity has been confirmed by dental comparison,” it reads. “The body has been x-rayed and a full autopsy has been performed. 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.”

The statement went on, “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.”

Investigators have also revealed the devastating way that they believe Naya died.

Naya sadly died after taking a trip to the lake with her son, Josey Dorsey. She was reported missing last week after she didn’t come back from swimming, while Josey was discovered sleeping on a rented pontoon boat at Lake Piru.
