People reports that Josey told the investigators that he and Naya counted “1, 2, 3″ and then jumped off the pontoon boat and into the lake. After they got in the water, Josey says that his mom told him to get back on the boat.

“She helped him onto the boat and then he then heard [Naya] yell ‘help’ and she put her arm in the air. She then disappeared into the water,” the report stated.

The report also gives some insight into Naya‘s health and how she had a history of vertigo “that would get worse when she was in the water.”

The report stated, “The decedent would have vertigo to the point of vomiting, but she learned to control the symptoms with antihistamines.”

Naya was reportedly in good health prior to her death and she was “considered to be a good swimmer.” Her cause of death is drowning and it was ruled as an accident.

The toxicology report revealed that Naya “had low-level amounts of amphetamine (Adderall, Dexedrine), diazepam, ethanol and phentermine (an appetite suppressant) in her system,” plus caffeine, when she died. Her blood alcohol concentration was 0.016 and it is believed that she drank some White Claw while on the boat.

The investigative report says that, “[Naya's] cell phone, syringes with a pink fluid substance, identification, and a filled prescription slip for amphetamine was found in [her] purse. Three 12 ounce White Claw alcohol cans were located near [her] purse. One of the cans was empty, one was open and was about 3⁄4 full, and one was unopened. There was a bag with food items on a bench seat near the front of the boat.”


A recent report revealed how Josey is doing following the death of his mom.
