During a press conference, Ventura County Sheriff’s officials confirmed that the body found in the lake was that of Naya Rivera
TMZ says sources within the Sheriff’s Department confirmed however that the recovered body is that of the actress.
As previously reported authorities found the actress’ 4-year-old son Josey Hollis Dorsey sleeping alone onboard a rented pontoon last week. The child told authorities that his mom “jumped in the water but did not come back up.”
Variety reports that more than 100 people, including professional divers and law enforcement agents aided in the search for her body. The sheriff’s office previously said their attempts were unsuccessful due to dangerous conditions and poor visibility in the lake.
