'Glee' Star Naya Rivera Dead at 33

Source: Rolling Stone

The body of actress Naya Rivera, best known for her role as Santana Lopez on the TV show Glee, was found Monday after going missing in a lake near Los Angeles. She was 33.

Rivera was pronounced missing Wednesday, July 8th after going boating with her four-year-old son on Lake Piru, in Ventura County’s Los Padres National Forest. Rivera had reportedly rented a boat with her son, Josey Hollis Dorsey, at around 1 p.m. that afternoon. About three hours later, another boater discovered Josey sleeping alone on the boat’s pontoon. Officials said Josey was unharmed and wearing a life vest, while an adult life vest was found on the boat.

At the time, a spokesman for the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office said, “There’s no evidence of foul play at this point,” and, “This may well be a case of drowning.” A search and rescue operation was launched and continued throughout the week.

Rivera was born on January 12th, 1987 in Santa Clarita, California, just outside of Los Angeles, and began acting as a child. She scored her first job at age four on Eddie Murphy’s short-lived sitcom, The Royal Family. She spent the next several years picking up guest roles on shows like Family Matters, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Baywatch and Smart Guy.

3. Really sad

But I can believe it was an accident. Thank heavens the child was found safe.

I say it was an accident because my spouse fell off a boat the other week. An embarrassing story. He had been helping our son paint and make repairs on his sailboat and, the next weekend, move it from dry dock into the harbor. After finishing, he stepped off the boat onto the dinghy and fell right into the water—all while at the pier. When he returned home, he was wearing a ridiculously large pair of fishing-type overalls (don't know what they are called) they had found below, carrying a wet bag with his clothes, and looking sheepish. I'm still teasing him a week later. But now I know it's no laughing matter. This was tragic.

5. I don't

It looks planned to me. My husband thought the same thing.

7. I don't know why she would have taken a child with her if this was planned.

Apparently that lake has deep currents.
