The remains of Rivera’s publicist and the plane’s co-pilot have also been identified, the spokesman said.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
Rivera sold over 15 million albums worldwide and was nominated at the 2003, 2008 and 2010 Latin Grammys.
Rivera, who was 43 is survived by her five children.
