Here's How The Cast Of "Glee" Has Honored Naya Rivera On Social Media

Yesterday, Naya Rivera’s body was recovered after a days-long search around Lake Piru in Ventura County, CA. She had initially gone missing while boating on the lake with her 4-year-old son, Josey, on July 8.

Investigators believe that Naya and her son may have been caught in a strong current while swimming in the lake, and said in a news conference that “she mustered enough energy to get her son back onto the boat, but not enough to save herself.” She was 33 years old.
