    Naya Rivera

    Naya Rivera, the singer and actress best known for her acclaimed portrayal of Santana Lopez on “Glee,” is missing after a swimming accident in Ventura County, California.

    Rivera had rented a boat at Lake Piru, a reservoir near Santa Clarita in nearby Los Angeles county, which departed from the dock around 1:00 p.m. Wednesday afternoon. She was swimming with her 4-year-old son when, for unknown reasons, she submerged and did not resurface, Captain Eric Buschow of the Ventura County Sheriff’s department told TheWrap.

    I have a feeling she is dead, since this is an active search and missing person I'll post it here for now, then move it if she is found dead.https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/...052453713.html

    They don't know for a fact that she is dead.

    Hope it wasn't suicide. How does a body get lost in water? Wouldn't she be floating somewhere? Maybe caught on something?

    She could be caught on something, and that something could have dragged her down. It happens on the lake in my hometown.

    IIRC, they said the area she disappeared in is around 30 foot but only 15 is actually visible and people who have gone there said you do have to be careful as it does have a lot of things like branches etc she could have got hooked on. The latest seems to be they are scaling down the search and one report said it could take 7-10 days for her body to finally resurface but a more recent one said she might never be found.

    I read today that her son told authorities that she just didn't get back on the boat. That could mean a lot things. And plus, he is just, what?, four years old. I'm not saying, I'm just saying what he said makes me think she got him on the boat and for whatever reason didn't make it up with him.

    This is a really sad and confounding thing. I don't really get the suicide thinking. Probably never know.

    It doesn't look like she's kill herself with her son depending upon her on that boat. But you never know.

    Dang it wish I can find the article again but a family who lost their daughter in the exact same spot to drowning said it was most likely an underwater whirlpool that she got caught in that is what happened to their daughter. If that is the case she is dead.

    The Sheriff surprisingly said it wasn't suicide so someone must have suggested it but a few days previously she was posting things online like 'every day you are alive is a blessing' and 'Make the most of today and every day you are given. tomorrow is not promised' which has people online wondering. I think this is gonna be one of these times that there will always be a question mark over what actually happened.

    No. I have not. I have friends that have and they are super bummed.

    At the large lake in my area a guy went missing in the Dam area of lake. It took them weeks to finally find him. And it was a super hot summer.

    Ours is man made. Corps of Engineers built Buford Dam on the Chattahoochee River, and Lake Sidney Lanier is the reservoir , rising above a town, pastureland with barbwire fences, trees, you name it. The islands are actually hilltops. Swimmers get tangled up or step off a shelf and drown. Plus, there are catfish in the Dam big as grown men. I was floating around one summer day, and something pulled a duck under. I know it's ridiculous, but I keep thinking about that. What if something pulled her under? Whirlpool, or she dipped down and got her foot tangled in something. It's not out of the realm of possibility that there was somebody else out there that the little boy didn't see or blocked out.

    I loved Glee! She was great as the sometimes evil Santana. Here's the latest:

    Yes Cindy the lake I am talking about was man made by the Corps of Engineers. They made my Dad and Mom sell our farm and property in the early 70's. The lake level is very low due to no rain and it can be very dangerous. Old iron bridges and old fences are still there there. And yes giant catfish at the Dam. Been creeped out many a time kayaking alone in certain areas at Patoka Lake.

    At least they managed to find her. Seemingly she sent a picture to a friend and that's how they were able to zero in where to look.

    Drownings
    Lake Piru

    Due to harsh conditions such as debris, low visibility, whirlpools, strong winds, and cold water temperatures, a number of fatalities related to drowning have occurred at Lake Piru:[12]

    • On August 1994, 27-year-old Jesus Danilo Carranza drowned in the lake while on an outing with his family, even though he was wearing a life jacket.[13]
    • On July 1997, Liborio Dominguez of Long Beach drowned in the lake while trying to rescue his daughter. Dominguez’s body was discovered several days later.[13]
    • On September 1997, 22-year-old Isidro Castillo of Newhall drowned in the lake and his body was found a day later.[13]
    • On September 1997, rescue workers recovered the body of 30-year-old Ulises Anthony Mendoza of Port Hueneme, who disappeared days earlier while swimming in the lake.[13]
    • On February 1998, Lake Piru employee Arthur Raymond Caladara was found drowned in the lake. The details of his death are unknown.[13]
    • On June 1998, the body of 30-year-old Vy Xuan Dang of Garden Grove was found by a park ranger; he was last seen swimming near a boat days earlier.[13]
    • On September 2000, 25-year-old Eric Cruz of Van Nuys drowned 10 feet from the shore.[13]
    • On May 16, 2004, 9-year-old Piru resident Denise Arredondo drowned roughly 150 feet from the shore while wading in the water.[14]
    • On August 25, 2008, 39-year-old Anatoly Naftoli Smolyansky drowned in the lake. Smolyansky was on a boat with his family when his 5-year-old daughter fell into the water. Smolyansky jumped into the water to save her but disappeared beneath the surface as he was pushing her back toward the boat.[15] Smolyansky's 9-year-old son aided in his sister's rescue and both children survived.[16] After a week-long search, Smolyansky's body was found floating north of Diablo Cove by a group of Lake Piru rangers and Ventura County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue divers.[16]
    • On May 22, 2010, 36-year-old Roberto Barrios disappeared under water while swimming in the lake with friends. His body was found submerged in the lake three days later.[17][18]
    • On September 11, 2014, the drowned body of a 28-year-old Piru woman was found. The following day, Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office described the death as a suicide.[19]
    • On July 8, 2020, actress Naya Rivera disappeared while swimming in the lake and was declared a missing person after her four-year-old son, Josey, was found alone in Rivera's rented pontoon boat.[20] Rivera's body was recovered on the morning of July 13 following an extensive five-day search.[ Rest In Peace Naya

    Wow Drew. That lake sounds deadly.
    I wonder if her son fell into lake and she jumped in to save him without her life jacket on in a panic? If you go swimming you usually put down the anchor but with that deep water I would not think the anchor would hit bottom. If the boat was drifting it would have been difficult for her to get him back to the boat and then somehow lift or push him back up.

    This is such a shame. She wasn't my favorite character on Glee, but I always thought she was really talented. Her poor little boy. RIP
    Performing my signature monkey hump move since 10/16/2007...

    RIP Dad- 11/14/1947 to 12/16/2013

    In a very recent YouTube video from Scott about Naya's death, he talks about the lack of a signal in the Piru Lake area and wonders how she was able to send that pic.

    I think if any place should have lifeguards it would be at that lake ! If you go out on a boat, PLEASE wear a personal floatation device.

    ""The Ventura County Medical Examiner also released Rivera's toxicology report, which reveals the actress had low-level amounts of amphetamine (Adderall, Dexedrine), diazepam, ethanol and phentermine (an appetite suppressant) in her system, as well as caffeine, at the time of her death. According to the toxicology report, her blood alcohol concentration was 0.016."" as you do....

    Hmmm is right. Reminds me a little of when Peter Bogdanovich ended up with Dorothy Stratten's sister Louise. What a dirtbag he is.

    They've both denied it saying it is only to help the boy and anyone who thinks it's because of any other reason should be disgusted with themself. So if it does come out they are together, their current denial is gonna come back and bite them on the ass.
