Jenni Rivera and six others died Sunday morning in Mexico after the plane she was traveling on from Monterrey to Toluca, crashed shortly after takeoff, leaving no survivors.
Rivera, 43, four other passengers and two pilots were aboard the plane during the tragic crash.
Mexico’s transportation ministry says the plane lost contact with radar at 3:15 AM, approximately 61 miles from Monterrey, where the Mexican-American singer performed on Saturday night.
According to transportation and communication minister Gerardo Ruiz Esparza, the remains of the plane were found in Nuevo Leon state, and “everything points toward it being the plane” in which Rivera was traveling.
Rivera was named one of the 25 most powerful women by People en Español and reportedly signed on recently to do a comedy pilot for ABC. She has sold over 20 million albums worldwide.
