As reported, a body was found in Lake Piru where Naya Rivera went missing. Ventura County Sheriff’s tweeted out the news, saying, “A body has been found at Lake Piru this morning. The recovery is in progress. There will be a news conference at 2 pm at the lake.”
Now TMZ is reporting that the person found is Naya Rivera. The outlet states, “Naya Rivera’s body has been recovered from Lake Piru. Our law enforcement sources have confirmed it is, in fact, her.”
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department is having a press conference at 2 p.m. to reveal more information.
During the live stream, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department said that they are confident that the body they found was Naya Rivera. They are taking the body to get an official autopsy. They also repeated that there is no evidence of foul play or suicide with the accident.
The sheriff who spoke at the conference gave details on where they discovered Naya, explaining that she was found on the Northeast portion of the lake. That area is 30 to 60-feet deep and is full of heavy brush and trees.
He also said her son helped them piece together what happened by giving them information on what occurred while he was on the lake with his mother.
Today out at Lake Piru, fellow costars of Naya’s from Glee stood hand to hand with members of Naya’s family. The moment was special because they were honoring Naya, but also because today is the seven-year-anniversary of Cory Monteith’s death, who was also on Glee.
