Almost three weeks after her tragic accidental drowning and only seven days since being laid to rest, the Glee alum's episode of Sugar Rush: Extra Sweet airs on Netflix today where she showcases her talents as guest judge.

The certificate confirmed that the actress' cause of death was drowning, and states that she died in a matter of minutes, with "no other significant conditions" contributing to her death. Her body was recovered July 13 and laid to rest July 24.

Rivera had rented a pontoon boat for a three-hour excursion with her only child.

When the boat failed to return on time, its vendor found the vessel drifting in the northern end of the lake with the little boy asleep on board.

Her son Josey was found unharmed and wearing a life vest while alone on a boat in the middle of the lake.

It took five long days for responders to find Rivera's body, which was obscured by shrubbery in the murky water that had low visibility. "I have a 4 year old son, so you are kind of required to know how to bake", Rivera said on the show.

The creators of Fox's "Glee" said in a statement that they were "heartbroken" over the death of the actress, who played Santana Lopez on the program for six seasons.

Rivera's ex-husband - and Josey's father - Ryan Dorsey broke his silence on social media about the accident one day after Rivera's burial.
