Naya Rivera Laid To Rest In Hollywood Cemetery After Tragic Death

Naya Rivera's death certificate revealed fresh details about the Glee star's tragic passing on Thursday - including the fact she died "in minutes".

The TV favourite, 33, went missing on July 8th after taking her son Josey on a boat on Lake Piru, just outside of Los Angeles.

On the 13th July, Naya's body was found in the lake.

Naya's death is officially said to have been caused by "drowning".

The Glee actress was laid to rest last Friday (July 24th) at Forrest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills, not quite two-weeks after her body was discovered.

The memorial park has seen the funerals of many late legends, from Paul Walker to Lucille Ball to Nipsey Hussle.

Naya had rented a boat for her and her four-year-old son, Josey, to take out onto the lake at around 1pm on Wednesday 8th July.

But just hours later, Josey was found in the boat asleep by himself, along with Naya's life jacket, ID and purse. Naya was nowhere to been.

Police say Naya "mustered enough strength to save her son but not herself" when the pair went swimming in Lake Piru on Wednesday 8th July.

Discussing the circumstances surrounding Naya's death, Sheriff Bill Ayub said: "We know from speaking with her son that he and Naya swam in the lake together at some point in 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 beneath the water."

During press questions at the end of the announcement earlier this month, Ayub added: "We believe it was mid-afternoon when she disappeared.

"The idea perhaps being that the boat started drifting, it was unanchored, and that she mustered enough energy to get her son back into the boat, but not enough to save herself."

RIP, Naya.
