We feared the worst in this awful situation, and sadly, it's come true.
Jenni Rivera and six others were reported missing early this morning when the plane flying them from Monterrey to Toluca suddenly dropped off the radar after 3am, and now, authorities have confirmed that they've discovered the wreckage believed to be carrying the Mexican-American singer, and there are no apparent survivors.
According to transportation and communication minister Gerardo Ruiz Esparza, what was left of the plane was found in Nuevo Leon state, and "everything points toward it being the plane" in which Rivera was traveling.
We cannot even begin to express our shock and sadness over such a profound loss.
Our heart and prayers go out to all of the friends, family, loved ones, and fans suffering as they attempt to come to terms with this unspeakable tragedy.
May Jenni and everyone else lost on that plane R.I.P.
You will be missed.
