Remains of Jenni Rivera have been recovered

Thumbnail image for jenni-rivera-mun2.jpgAuthorities in Mexico say that the remains of singer Jenni Rivera were found overnight in the wreckage field of her jet that crashed in mountains near near Iturbide, in the state of Nuevo Leon. Rivera's brother Lupillo reportedly will travel to Mexico to make an identification. Rivera, who was 43, died Sunday morning when the plane crashed after taking off about 3:30 a.m. from Monterrey.

Attorney Mario Macias, publicist Arturo Rivera, makeup artist Jacob Yebale and stylist Jorge Sanchez also died in the crash.

The media have been camped outside the Rivera family home in Lakewood, with a smaller contingent checking in at Rivera's home in the hills of Encino. In this report from this morning, KTLA's Lynette Romero talks about her personal connection to Rivera.
