They were particularly horrified when the alleged video showed a severed foot with painted toenails because it may belong to the singer.
The botched work of Mexican police officers on Jenni Rivera's plane crash evacuation has disgusted the singer's family. Not only items were stolen from the crash scene but also, video showing gruesome remains of the singer was taken with a cell phone and leaked to the Internet.
According to TMZ, Rivera's family want whoever took the video to be brought to justice. Although the footage has not been confirmed to be authentic, the family believed it was real based on the items and remains that were shown in it. Indeed, Rivera's brothers Pedro and Gus identified her body on the crash site in the northern state of Nuevo Leon on Wednesday, December 12. Therefore they might have a clue of the real situation.
The footage contained shots of mangled body parts including a severed foot with painted toenails. The family believed that the foot belonged to Rivera because "Jenni was very particular about her feet and toes." They hoped that all traces of the footage will be wiped out from the web as much as possible.
A rep for the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles has confirmed that two police officers have been arrested in relation to the video leak and stolen items. "We have over 2,000,000 police officers [in Mexico], and unfortunately some of these officers have been corrupt in the past, but we cannot generalize that the whole force is corrupt," the rep said, adding "Mexico has been working very hard to make their citizens and tourists safe, however it is not fair to judge the whole tree based upon a few bad apples."
Investigators searched the homes of the crooked cops and found items belonging to the crash victims and photographs of the crash scene which were leaked to the media.
