Family OUTRAGED Over

Grisly Death Scene Footage

Jenni Rivera
's family is DISGUSTED that crash scene video showing the gruesome remains of the Mexican singer has hit the Internet ... and now they want the scumbags responsible to be brought to justice ... TMZ has learned. 

As we reported, officials have already arrested two Mexican police officers, at least one of whom is believed to have leaked images of the crash scene to the media -- including shots of mangled body parts.

Additional leaked footage from the scene has spread like wildfire across the Internet -- showing more body parts ... including a severed foot with painted toenails.

The video hasn't been confirmed to be authentic -- but the Rivera family believes it's real based on the items shown in the video, as well as the remains.

Sources close to the Riveras tell TMZ, the family is appalled that anyone would even think about leaking something like that ... and they shudder to think that one of the first responders might be responsible.

We're told the severed foot was the most painful part to watch because "Jenni was very particular about her feet and toes."

Family sources tell us ... the Riveras are hoping to have all traces of the footage wiped from the web ... at least, as much as possible.

Rivera -- who sold over 20 million albums worldwide in her lifetime -- was only 43.

They post videos like this all of the time on the Spanish networks & do they care about what that deceased persons family thinks? Why should they treat her death any differently?

What do you expect it happened in Mexico. Some people don't have respect for those havelost their lives there. My brother in law was tragically killed in a head on collision and his body was posted in the newspaper in Mexico. It has been 8 yrs and those images will always haunt me. I wish they world respect the loved ones that have tragically have lost their lives there instead of showing it to the public. R.I.P. Jenni and my condolences to the family that lost their loved ones.

Anyone have any thoughts or ideas why Mexico is so dirt poor and why all of its poor, uneducated, unskilled people need to come here?

You should see what the Spanish news shows. They show really gruesome stuff when it comes to dead people. It's horrible.

There is no need to show these grisly images. We already know that rescuers see body parts as a result of crashes.

the latino newspapers and news stations publish these kinds gory accident death photos all the time.

The only reason we are hearing anything about her loved ones wishes and horror over it is, unknown to me, she was apparently someone famous.

No surprise that anyone would steal or publish gruesome pictures of the crash scene. Mexican media is notorious for publishing bodies. There's even a so called newspaper "Alarma" or "Alarm" that its sole purpose is to publish "death" scenes. It's a really graphic paper. It is nothing out of the ordinary for Mexican people to see dismembered bodies, especially now with the narco wars. There is no respect for the deceased or their families over there. I am sure that those two cops who got caught stealing were not the only ones who took something from the scene to later sell on the Internet or on the street.

Can someone please tell me why the MILLIONS of illegal Mexicans in this country still hold a country fled in such high regard? Why do those illegals and anchor babys cheer for Mexico whenever they play the US in any sport?
