The 33-year-old “Glee” star was buried in Forest Lawn Memorial Park on July 24, according to a death certificate obtained from CNN. The Hollywood Hills Cemetery is the final resting place for many celebrities including Paul Walker, Carrie Fisher, Bette Davis and Liberace.
Rivera drowned in Lake Piru in Ventura County, California, after pulling her son out in a rented boat. It took researchers several days to find her body, but the medical examiner determined that she drowned within minutes, according to the death certificate.
No other significant factors were listed as contributing to Rivera’s death.
Josey, Rivera’s 4-year-old son, was found asleep on the cruise ship when the pontoon boat did not return to the rental company on time.
The creators of Fox’s “Glee” said in a statement that they were “heartbroken” by the death of the actress, who played Santana Lopez on the program for six seasons.
Their statement added: “Naya was more than an actor in our show – she was our friend.”
