Jenni Rivera Dead: Mexican-American Singer Dies In Plane Crash

Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera died Sunday in a plane crash in Mexico that left no survivors, HuffPost Voces reports.

Minutes after taking off from the northern city of Monterrey on its way to Toluca, the plane disappeared.

"My queen, we will see each other again soon," the singer's father Pedro Rivera told reporters in Los Angeles, according to HuffPost Voces. "We thought it was a press speculation, we wanted to believe that. But it's true, my daughter is dead."

Mexico's Director of Civil Aviation Alejandro Argudín said the plane had crashed, killing everyone on board, according to El Universal.

"The aircraft was left completely destroyed," Argudín said. "The information we have is that there wasn't a single survivor."

HuffPost Voces contacted Jenni Rivera’s brother Juan, who said the plane had been missing since only a few minutes after taking off at 3:15 a.m. Sunday.

The plane "was scheduled to arrive in Toluca at four thirty in the morning, where there was no record of flight," reports El Universal. "They began the corresponding search protocol at 4:40 with the help of two helicopters and an airplane," said the statement from the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation.

Minutes before taking off, Rivera's publicist Arturo Rivera took a photo of the singer inside the plane and uploaded it to his Twitter account. The photo was later erased, though Univision's Raul de Molina of "El Gordo y La Flaca" also posted it to Twitter.
