A Mexican government jet crash that killed the second-highest official in the nation was not caused by a bomb exposion, the Cabinet member in charge of the investigation said Saturday, CNN reported.
The government Learjet 45 crashed Tuesday in central Mexico City as it approached Benito Juarez International Airport. All eight people aboard were killed, including Interior Minister Juan Camilo Mourino. Also among the dead were Jose Luis Santiago Vasconcelos, a former deputy attorney general, and Miguel Monterubio Cubas, the director of social communication.
There has been widespread speculation among Mexicans that Mexican drug lords orchestrated the crash to kill the two crimefighters.
