MONTERREY, Mexico (rivera-new-picCNN) — Music star Jenni Rivera’s remains have been identified and turned over to her family, a government spokesman in Mexico said Thursday.

Rivera was killed Sunday when the plane on which she was flying plummeted from 28,000 feet, Mexico’s transportation secretary said.The plane crashed in a mountainous area 9,000 feet above sea level.

The remains of Rivera’s publicist and the plane’s co-pilot have also been identified, the spokesman for Mexico’s Nuevo Leon state said.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

Two civil lawsuits against the company that owns the private jet accused the firm of lying about its links to a businessman convicted of falsifying maintenance records.

Rivera, who was 43, is mourned by millions of fans.

    Why did she perform on a stage shaped as a cross??? Why did she sing a song talking about her funeral and the way she wanted to be remembered? Why did she write a letter one month ago and give to her sister to read when she died? And in that song “cuando se muere una diva” she mentioins that letter she gave her sister???
