Body of Naya Rivera Is Found at California Lake, Sheriff Says

Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub said search teams recovered Ms. Rivera’s body on Monday, almost a week after she was reported missing.

Today, our search teams have recovered a body in the lake. Based on the location where the body was found, physical characteristics of the body, clothing found on the body and the physical condition 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. Detectives from our major crimes bureau began working this case from the onset. Their work on this case revealed there was no indication of foul play, and no indication this was a suicide. Moving forward, Naya’s body is being taken to the Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office in Ventura, where an autopsy will be performed and a positive identification will be made through the examination of dental records. We know from speaking with her son that he and Naya swam in the lake together at some point during their journey. It was during that time that her son described being helped into the boat by Naya, who boosted him onto the deck from behind. He told investigators that he looked back and saw her disappear under the surface of the water.
