The 33-year-old’s death was ruled a drowning accidentfollowing the coroner’s autopsy. Authorities believe the boat drifted away from Rivera as she was out swimming with Josey and that while she was able to get her son — who was wearing a flotation device — back to the boat, she didn’t have enough strength
Morris isn’t the only “Glee” costar who believes in a metaphysical explanation for the recovery of Rivera’s body.
Kevin McHale tweeted, “I’m not religious by any means, but you’d be hard-pressed to convince me that Cory [Monteith] didn’t help find our girl today.” Rivera’s body was recovered on the seven-year-anniversary of the overdose death of Monteith, who also starred in the hit show.
Naya Rivera’s former “Glee” castmate Heather Morris says a vigil at Lake Piru “called” Rivera “out of the water.”
“We called her out of the water and she came,” Morris, 33, tweeted Friday afternoon, alongside a photo of a July 13th vigil at the lake’s shore that included members of Rivera’s family, Morris and “Glee” cast members Amber Riley, Chris Colfer and Kevin McHale. “If you’re not a believer,” she added, “I don’t know what more proof you’d need.”
Rivera’s body was recovered that same day after she vanished on the Southern California lake July 8, after she rented a pontoon boat with her 4-year-old son, Josey.
