“It’s just a nightmare,” the source continued of the tragedy. “Although [Dorsey] wasn’t with Naya, it’s Josey’s mom. Josey needs his mom.”

The Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed Tuesday that Rivera’s cause of death was drowning, following the completion of an autopsy report. The manner of death is listed as an accident. She was 33.

According to the medical examiner’s office, “There is no indication from the investigation or examination that drugs or alcohol played a role” in Rivera’s death, “but specimens will be submitted for toxicology testing.”
