The family of the late Latin American pop star Jenni Rivera is outraged over a leaked video of the plane crash site where she died Sunday.
On Thursday, two Mexican police officers were reportedly arrested for stealing items belonging to the victims of the plane crash. Now, TMZ is reporting that at least one of them is linked to a video of the tragic scene that is circulating around the web. The video even includes shots of mangled body parts.
It has not been authenticated by authorities, but Rivera’s family believes it is real and that is shows her remains. Sources close to the family told TMZ that they are outraged by the video and cannot believe that it could have been leaked by one of the first responders.
The shot of the severed foot really angered the family since “Jenni was very particular about her feet and toes,” the sources said.
They add that the family hopes that they can get the video taken off the web as soon as possible.
It has also been reported that the owner of the 43-year-old Learjet 25 that Rivera was using, Starwood Management LLC, has a questionable record. Christian E. Esquino Nunez, an executive for the Las Vegas-based company, was accused of falsifying documents by federal authorities.
The Associated Press reports that the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration had seized two of Starwood’s planes this year and is now investigating the company.
