Glee actress Naya Rivera went missing from Lake Piru on the 8th of July after renting a Pontoon boat with her four years old son Josey. Around three hours later, the boy was found alone on the boat, sleeping and unharmed. Josey told the police that his mother went swimming and never returned afterward.
After 5 days of mind-numbing search, the actress’ body was recovered from the lake on Monday.
