Unanswered Questions 11 Years After Jenni Rivera’s Death


News Team

Jenni Rivera, also known as the ‘Diva de la Banda’, tragically passed away on December 9, 2012. She was traveling to the city of Toluca, Mexico, when the private plane she was on crashed just 15 minutes after takeoff. The accident also claimed the lives of her publicist, makeup artist, stylist, lawyer, pilot, and co-pilot. Even after 11 years, there are still many unanswered questions about the case. The Mexican authorities closed the case in 2014 without conclusive results or determining the exact cause of the accident.

One of the main questions that remain is the relationship of the Mexican businessman who owns the company that rented the plane to Rivera. His name is Eduardo Christian Esquino Núñez, also known as ‘Ed Núñez’. He is the owner of Starwood Management LLC, the company that rented the plane to Rivera. The plane had a history of accidents, but its aeronautical certificate indicated that it was fit to fly at the time of the accident. Esquino Núñez has been linked to renting planes to Mexican cartels and is currently a fugitive from justice.

In 2026, a judge held Starwood Management LLC responsible for the accident and ordered them to pay $70 million in compensation to Rivera’s collaborators who were traveling with her. However, there is no information about whether the compensation was ever paid. In 2022, relatives of the victims claimed that they had not received any compensation from the Rivera family. They had filed a lawsuit against Jenni Rivera Enterprises and other companies involved in the accident.

The families of the victims have been seeking justice for many years. They have claimed that they have been ignored by the Rivera family and have not received any compensation. The case remains open, and the families of the victims continue to seek answers and closure.
