The family of a makeup artist killed in a plane crash that also claimed the life of singer Jenni Rivera is trying to force the aircraft's manufacturer to identify all those who had owned, operated and repaired the Learjet 25.
Rivera's makeup artist, Jacob Yebale, was among the seven people killed when the aircraft crashed Dec. 9 in northern Mexico.
Yebale's family filed a request this week in an Illinois court to compel Bombardier Aerospace and its Learjet division to turn over information on the aircraft's history, including the names of all those who owned, operated and performed maintenance on the plane.
The petition for discovery was filed Wednesday in Cook County Circuit Court in Illinois because Bombardier does a substantial amount of business in the state.
