Naya Rivera Official Cause of Death

This week the body of actress Naya Rivera was found on Piru Lake in Ventura County, CA after a five day search [click here if you missed that].

The official cause of death has been determined...

On July 8 Naya Rivera went missing on Piru lake after renting a pontoon boat with her 4-year-old son Josey. Josey told investigators he and his mother had been swimming and that she boosted him onto the boat from behind and when he looked back he saw her go underwater. Investigators believe Naya's unanchored boat may have drifted and that she had enough strength to push Josie onto the boat but not enough to save herself. The current in the lake is also at its strongest during the time Naya took the boat out.

The autopsy report completed by the Ventura County Medical Examiner lists the cause of death as an accidental drowning. The report also noted neither alcohol nor drugs played a factor.

Naya Rivera was 33.
