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 at 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 accuse 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.
