‘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 report added.
The Glee star’s body was recovered from the northeast portion of Lake Piru, located 50 miles north of Los Angeles, on Monday after she went missing last week.
Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub said there was nothing to indicate any foul play took place or that she died by suicide.
She went missing on July 8 while boating with her four-year-old son Josey.
A search began after the young boy was found alone in a boat in the middle of the lake. He said Rivera never got back onto the boat when they went for a swim.
A body was found floating on the surface of the lake Monday and Sheriff Ayub said they were ‘confident’ it was Rivera.
‘Based on the location where the body was found, physical characteristics of the body, clothing found of the body and the physical condition of the body, as well as the absence of any other persons reported in the area, we are confident the body we found is that of Naya Rivera,’ he said.
Dental records were used to confirm it was her.
