Us Weekly noted that the certificate, which was filed in Ventura County, California, reaffirms the previous statement of the medical examiner. The press release, which was published soon after Rivera’s body was found, read:

“The autopsy findings are consistent with a drowning and the condition of the body is consistent with the time that she was submerged.”

The late 33-year-old who gained acclaim for her role as Santana Lopez on “Glee” was declared missing when she didn’t return from the boat trip she took with her son, Josey Hollis Dorsey.

BBC recalled that divers eventually discovered the actress’ body after a search that lasted for days. The confirmation of her passing quickly brought on an outpour of love from her co-stars, friends, and fans who were initially praying for her well-being.
