Not so GLEE: Iconic Show Plagued By Multiple Tragedies

The musical comedy-drama Glee, which aired between 2009 and 2015, is facing another tragedy…..Naya Rivera, who played “Santana Lopez” is reportedly missing and presumed dead.

Allegedly she was boating in Lake Piru when her son said she “jumped in”. He was found asleep on the boat, alone by nearby boaters.

Although her thyroid appears large in the above photo, it is unclear if she suffered from thyroid disease or depression.

The 33 year-old actress, however, had a rough road since her days on Glee. She dated Mark Salling, who played Noah “Puck” Puckerman for a short time, before he was found dead in a riverbed, allegedly from suicide, near Big Tujunga Creek in Los Angeles. The 35 year-old actor had battled depression, being registered as a sex offender and was facing 4-7 years of prison after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography.

In 2013, Cory Monteith, who played Finn Hudson, died of an overdose of alleged heroin with alcohol, when he was 31, following years of drug abuse.
