The sad passing of American actress Naya Rivera has been ruled as accidental drowning by Californian officials, noting that there’s no indication that traumatic injury, drugs or alcohol played a part in her death.
On Tuesday, Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office released the autopsy’s findings via social media confirming that the body found on Monday July 13, was the 33-year-old actress.
“The circumstances and visual characteristics all indicated that the body was that of Naya Rivera and the identity has been confirmed by dental comparison,” the report stated.
“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.”
It added, “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,”
The Glee star went missing during a boating trip with her 4-year-old son, Josey Dorsey on July 8. Before she was found, her son told police that his mum “jumped into the water but didn’t come back up” after he was found floating on the boat alone.
Naya’s body was recovered from the northeast portion of Lake Piru, located 50 miles north of Los Angeles, on Monday after she went missing last week. Her family released their first statement and paid tribute to Rivera after the autopsy confirmed her death.
