Dwyane Wade reacts to shocking death of ‘Glee’ star Naya Rivera
Miami Heat legend Dwyane Wade paid tribute to Naya Rivera and her four-year-old son after the ‘Glee’ actress’ body was found after a five-day search.
Dwyane Wade posted an Instagram story dedicated to Rivera and her son.
Reports reveal that on Monday morning, a body was found floating in Lake Piru. Authorities said they are “confident” that the body is “Glee” actress Naya Rivera.
The search began on Wednesday after Josey, Rivera’s son, was found on a boat all alone with no sign of the actress other than her wallet, identification, and a life jacket. From a search and rescue, the operation turned into a body recovery since experts believed that Rivera might have drowned in the lake.
Josey also told authorities after swimming in the lake, his mother helped him climb back onto the boat. Upon turning around, Josey saw no signs of his mother.
While the investigation is still ongoing, Ventura County Sheriff Bill Ayub shared what potentially could’ve happened.
“It would be speculation to say at this point,” Ayub said, per Fox News. “There are a lot of currents on the lake that get up here, particularly in the afternoon. We believe it was mid-afternoon when she disappeared. The idea of perhaps being that the boat started drifting, it was unanchored, and that she mustered enough energy to get her son back onto the boat, but not enough to save herself.”
Though it’s unclear if Dwyane Wade personally knew Rivera and her family, the Heat icon does have Hollywood links through his wife Gabrielle Union.
