LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say “Glee” star Naya Rivera has been found dead at a Southern California lake. Ventura County sheriff’s officials confirmed at a news conference that the body found floating in Lake Piru earlier Monday was the 33-year-old Rivera.

The discovery came five days after Rivera’s 4-year-old son was found asleep and alone on a rented boat.

Authorities said the following day they believed Rivera had drowned. She is the third star of the Fox musical-comedy series “Glee” to die in their 30s.

Her death was confirmed exactly seven years after co-star Corey Monteith died.
