Naya Rivera's dead body has been recovered from California's Lake Piru, where the Glee actress went missing after renting a boat and going swimming with her 4-year-old son, Josey Hollis Dorsey. TMZ cited "law-enforcement sources" in confirming its report on Monday morning. Last Wednesday, when local authorities responded to a report that a young child was alone in a pontoon boat in the Ventura County lake, Josey told them that he and his mom were swimming and he didn't know what happened to her. The authorities have are calling Rivera's presumed drowning a "tragic accident," and say "there is no indication of foul play." Rivera, 33, was married to Josey's father, Ryan Dorsey, from 2014 to 2018. She's the third major Glee cast member to die in their thirties, following Cory Monteith and Mark Salling.
