Actress Naya Rivera died of accidental drowning, officials in California have said after a post-mortem examination.
“The cause of death is drowning, and the manner of death is accident,” the Ventura County’s Medical Examiner said.
The 33-year-old, best known for playing cheerleader Santana Lopez in Glee, went missing during last Wednesday’s boat trip with her son at Lake Piru.
After a long search, divers found her body on Monday, prompting an outpouring of love and sympathy from her co-stars.
In a statement posted on Twitter, the Ventura County’s Medical Examiner said that Rivera’s body “has been X-rayed and a full autopsy has been performed.
“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.
“There is no indication from the investigation or examination that drugs or alcohol played a role in the decedent’s death, but specimens will be submitted for toxicology testing,” the statement said.
