A tragic end to an already sad story has surfaced as the plane carrying Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera has been found.
As we previously reported, Rivera’s plane went missing after the singer left Monterrey, Mexico at 3:15 a.m. Air Traffic Control lost contact with the two pilots after the plane was roughly 60 miles en route to Toluca- near Mexico City.
Now, Communication and Transportation Minister Gerardo Ruiz Esparza tells Foro TV, a CNN affiliate, “Everything points to that this is the plane.”
Alejandro Argudin, Director General of Aviation, informs that he does not believe that anyone survived the crash. "The aircraft was destroyed, totally fragmented," he states.
Ruiz Esparza tells Televisa network, as reported by New York Daily News, “There is nothing recognizable, neither material nor human" in the wreckage."
According to CNN, two helicopters were assisting in the search for Rivera’s plane which was carrying two pilots and four additional passengers as well as Rivera.
An investigation as to why the plane went down is currently ongoing.
Rivera, 46, was a mother to of five.
