Among those closest to Naya - and most affected by her passing - were her sister Nickayla Rivera and her ex-husband (and the father of her child) Ryan Dorsey.

On July 13, Ventura County Sheriff's Office confirmed in a press conference that 33-year-old Naya was discovered floating near the surface in the Lake Piru's northeast region.

They also posted video of the two transporting his belongings from his old home in San Fernando Valley into via a moving truck to take to the rented space. While Josey was found unharmed by himself in a boat, Naya was not found. On September 19, the pair were photographed holding hands as they shopped at Target.

'They seem really comfortable together and are obviously helping each other through a very hard period in both their lives, ' said an eye witness who spotted the pair in Target.

The Glee star was laid to rest in a private funeral attended by her family at Forest Lawn Memorial Park cemetery in Hollywood Hills, Calif. on July 24. "They're obviously helping lift each other's spirits".

Nickayla Rivera admitted she's "not concerned" in a response to reports that she's living with her late sister's ex-husband Ryan Dorsey after they were spotted holding hands during a shopping trip. ⁣ ⁣ "I've never known a life without you in it & still can't imagine it". The autopsy officially ruled Rivera's death an accidental drowning, and noted that Rivera was healthy, but had a history of vertigo "that would get worse when she was in the water". "Side by side or miles apart, our connection is infinite". The yin to my yang. "Showing up for my nephew, even though I can't show up for myself". "We were just in the back swimming with Josey the day before", he wrote. "Life is all about good times and bad times but with Josey it makes the bad a little less so because a part of you will always be with us". We miss you. We will always love you.
