Update 6:47pm ET: Mexican authorities say there are apparently no survivors on the plane, and no way of identifying them. The bizarre thing: No remains either.
Dec 10, 2012 4:27 am ET: Rivera’s death in the crash has been confirmed. RIP.
Jenni Rivera’s plane, earlier reported as missing today in Mexico, has crashed. The problem now is that there is no sign of anybody on board to determine the rate of casualties or fatalities.
Mexico’s transportation ministry says the plane lost contact with radar at 3:15 am, approximately 61 miles from Monterrey. It was bound for Toluca.
Several Spanish websites have reported the Mexican-American singer’s death but this has been disputed by the relevant authorities. Sources say that the remains of the plane were found by farmers on a field at Iturbide, in Sierra Madre, two hours from Monterrey.
