According to Rivera’s death certificate, obtained by The Blast, Naya was buried on July 24, 2020 — at the famous Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills — a location filled with some of the entertainment businesses brightest stars.
Nipsey Hussle, Paul Walker, and Liberace are a few of the famous names who are now buried alongside of Rivera.
According to the certificate, Rivera’s cause of death is confirmed as a “Drowning” and it says she died in the matter of “minutes.”
Also, the document says she has “no other significant conditions that contributed to her death.” The revelation is important, considering many conspiracy theories surrounding the ‘Glee’ stars death centered around some other detail besides just accidentally slipping below the water.
The legal document also confirmed the location of Naya’s death, ‘Lake Piru,’ and says she spent “32 years” of her life in the entertainment business. She passed away at only 33 years old.
As we reported, Naya Rivera’s autopsy prior to her burial confirmed she has no ‘traumatic injuries’ and investigators said they did not believe drugs or alcohol played any role in her death.
The Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office officially ruled the death as a ‘drowning’ and they concluded the manner of her death as an ‘accident.’
“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,” authorities said at the time.
Naya’s body was found in Lake Piru after her son was found floating in a rental boat they had rented earlier in the day.
As we reported, the area where she was found was 30-60 feet and the water was filled with trees and thick brush. One of the operating theories is the actress got caught in the underwater foliage.
Investigators in the case say Naya had pushed her son onto the boat after taking a swim together, but she never climbed aboard after getting him to safety.
The father of Naya’s son Josey, Ryan Dorsey, broke his silence on her death saying, “This is so unfair…there’s not enough words to express the hole left in everyone’s hearts. I can’t believe this is life now. I don’t know if I’ll ever believe it.” Adding, “You were just here… We were just in the back swimming with Josey the day before. Life just isn’t fair. I don’t know what to say.”
