Naya Rivera

Days ago, reports flew around that actress Naya Rivera is believed to be dead after drowning in Lake Piru(located in California). A search for Rivera’s body quickly began by emergency personnel. Some reports say family also joined in the search for any signs of Rivera. Today, sheriff deputy Bill Ayub says he believes a body they have found is that of Naya Rivera. From sheriff deputy Ayub:

Today our search teams have discovered a body in the lake. Based on the location on where the body was found, physical characteristics of the body, clothing found on the body and physical conditioning of the body as well as the absence of any other persons reported missing in the area. We are confident the body we found is that of Naya Rivera. She was found in a north eastern portion of the lake.

Near the surface of the water. Depth of the water in that area is between 35 and 60 feet deep, and there’s heavy brush and trees on the lake bed there. Detectives from our major crimes bureau began working this case from the very onset. There work on this revealed there was no indication of foul play, and indication this was a suicide.

Naya is believed to have fallen out of a boat she was in with her son, and ultimately died from drowning. Reportedly, family members were taken to view Rivera’s body. This maybe also why authorities are confident that the body is indeed that of the actress. Rivera is survived by her 4 years old son. Below is an image of Rivera and her son she posted just days before her death. Captioning the photo as just the two of us.
