Jenni Rivera's Body Identified, Remains Turned Over To Family

Mexican authorities have confirmed that the remains of Jenni Rivera have been identified and turned over to her family, according to CNN.

The Mexican-American superstar was killed in a plane crash Sunday. Shortly after taking off from the northern city of Monterrey on her way to Toluca, the Learjet 25 carrying Rivera and six companions crashed.

Rivera's mother Rosa Saavedra had previously told reporters that she still hoped her daughter would somehow be found alive.

HuffPost Voces was able to confirm that Lupillo, Juan and Gustavo, Jenni's three brothers, had traveled to Monterrey to identify their sister’s body and are in the airport about to take a flight to Los Angeles, where the rest of the family is waiting for them.

We will continue to update as this story develops.
