Mexican singer Jenni Rivera passed away on Dec. 9, and now, police officers who were at the scene have been arrested, multiple news reports said.
According to Fox News, Rivera, who was born in the U.S., was robbed by two cops, as personal items belonging to the star were taken from the plane crash site.
Rivera, 43, died in a plane crash after the private jet she and six other people were on nose dived from 28,000 feet at 600 m.p.h. There were no survivors among the five passengers and two pilots.
"The impact must have been terrible,” Secretary of Communications and Transportation, Gerardo Ruiz Esparza, told Radio Formula.
Rivera was reportedly on her way to a taping of the Mexican television program “La Voz.”
Mexican authorities said Luis Antonio Avila Moreno, 23, and Mario Alberto Garcia Pacheco, 24, were guarding the plane crash site. Images of the scene, personal documents, and body parts, were found on Moreno’s cell phone on Tuesday, reports said.
Personal items of the victims were also found at the home of the police officers.
“The entire Universal Music Group family is deeply saddened by the sudden loss of our dear friend Jenni Rivera," Rivera’s record label said in a statement after her death.
“From her incredibly versatile talent to the way she embraced her fans around the world, Jenni was simply incomparable. ... Her talent will be missed, but her gift of music will be with us always.”
Rivera’s family said they still have faith that the pop singer is alive, however. Her brother, Juan, told reporters outside the Riveras’ Long Beach, Calif., home on Monday, “In our eyes, we still have faith that our sister will be OK.
"We thank God for the life that he has given ... my sister … for all the triumphs and successes she has had, and we expect that there will be more in the future.”
