Fans leave flowers and a poster of singer Jenni Rivera at a memorial spot on December 10, 2012 in Burbank, California. Rescue workers searched Monday the wreckage of a plane that carried Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera, a star on both sides of the border whose death shocked Latin music fans and celebrities. Civil Aviation director Alejandro Argudin said the search could take several days and that authorities were trying to determine if the Learjet, made in 1969, carried a black-box flight data recorder.

LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) -- Jenni Rivera has had her final homecoming.

The remains of the Mexican music superstar arrived at Long Beach Airport by private jet on Thursday evening. Her casket was then driven to a mortuary, where dozens of fans waited.

Other fans gathered outside her family’s home in nearby Lakewood, where well-wishers have left a memorial of photos, candles and flowers.

Rivera and six other people died early Sunday when a plane she was traveling in nose-dived to the ground while flying from Monterrey in northern Mexico to the central city of Toluca.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
