Naya Rivera attends the LA premiere of Roadside Attraction's "Judy" at Samuel Goldwyn Theater on September 19, 2019 in Beverly Hills, California.

Almost three weeks after the Glee star drowned in a frightful accident in Ventura County's Lake Piru, the document was obtained by multiple media outlets, including The Blast and People magazine.

According to the document, issued in Ventura County, Rivera drowned "in minutes". She had no underlying ailments, and no drugs or alcohol were found in her system.

The Glee actress, who sadly died at the age of 33 after a drowning accident with her son in Lake Piru, will appear as a featured guest on Season 3 of Netflix's baking competition reality TV series, Sugar Rush, which will be released on Friday (July 31).

Rivera's body was located in the same area where she went missing, concealed by shrubbery. Days later, her body was recovered by divers as her former Glee co-stars and family prayed by the lakeside.

Josey, Rivera's 4-year-old son, was found asleep on the floating vessel when the pontoon boat wasn't returned to the rental company on time.

"There is no indication from the investigation or examination that drugs or alcohol played a role in the decedent's death". The child, who was napping in his life jacket, told authorities they had been swimming and while he got back on the boat, she disappeared under the water.
