Mexican-American Singer Jenni Rivera Killed In Plane Crash
MEXICO CITY (CNN) -- Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera died when the small plane she was traveling in with at least five others crashed in the mountains in northern Mexico, her brother told CNN.
Authorities notified the family there were no survivors, Gustavo Rivera said late Sunday.
There were conflicting reports about the number of people onboard the plane that took off early Sunday from Monterrey, Mexico, and lost contact with air traffic controllers a short time later.
Gustavo Rivera said there were six people, including his sister, her publicist, her lawyer, a family friend and two pilots. Rivera's father, according to published reports, said there were up to seven people on the plane, though he did not identify those believed to be onboard.
