I had this issue in the past. Search! Many members have the same issue. Its likely the third brake light, or the rear window seal. Fixes are all over this forum.

Mine did that, I took some black caulk and went across the top of the back window on the outside. I found my third brake light wasn't leaking, but I did almost break it trying to pull it out, the bulb made the plastic droop down behind the sheet metal!

Yea check the cargo light since it's the easiest. If you can determine that isn't the cause, then you're looking at replacing the rear window seal. Not a hard job, but the best seal to use is $22.
