Murder of Selena
Saldívar as I said before was a former nurse who was a big fan of country music. Yolanda once attended Selena’s concert and she became a huge fan of her and as far as we know she use to repeatedly call and ask the singers dad Abraham Quintanilla for permission to start a fan club in the name of the late singer in san Antonio and later she was also the president of the fan club. The singer’s dad had to eventually give in to the request and later she became the president of the fan club and that’s how the story begins.
Later Yolanda Saldívar was given the charge of taking care and managing Selena’s clothing store and she trusted her and the name of her clothing line was Selena Etc.
In the year 1993 the Selena fan club had reached 1,500 members and that was only like four years since it started and later the number of fans increased and the count of members grew to become a big sum of 5,000 members that time. this fan club was one of the biggest and largest fan clubs in San Antonio and had so many members.
During the year 1995, Selena and her family came to know that Yolanda Saldivar was involved in money embellishing and robbing from both Selena’s fan club and also from her clothing stores this information being spread led to the firing of Yolanda Saldivar early during the summer of the year.
The event happened On the morning of March 31Selena the singer had agreed to meet Yolanda Saldívar at a motel in Corpus Christi to ask about the embellishment and other details and also to get the records regarding all financial details which of course Saldivar was refusing to show and produce.
Yolanda delayed giving any details to Selena on that day by telling her that she had been rapped in Mexico and worried Selena took Yolanda Saldivar to a local hospital, she was medically examined there but the authorities told that the further medical examination can only take place elsewhere since the incident which Saldivar claim to have happened had taken place in some other country.
Later after this being said by medical staff, they both got back to the same motel as earlier, and Selena demanded that Yolanda Saldivar produce all the records before the singer again and immediately .hearing this Yolanda Saldívar took a .38 Taurus Model 85 revolver from her purse and pointed the gun at Selena.
Scared Selena tried to run from the scene but Saldívar shot Selena in the back once and he completely severed Selena’s artery. Selena was critically wounded and she ran down to the lobby and Yolanda Saldivar was running behind her and was calling Selena a “bitch” as per the reports. The singer had already lost so much blood and Selena collapsed on the floor near to the lobby and the as the clerk present tried to call the police and the singer was taken to the hospital but couldn’t save her as she had already lost so much blood and the singer Selena died later in the hospital the same day around 1 pm and that how singer Selena died.
After much-heated court ordeals and the singer being famous the case was closely watched over by her fans and people around the world and the singer’s family members tried their best to make sure that Yolanda Saldivar was given a maximum prison sentence and after the court, after the trial found out Saldívar guilty of first-degree murder of the singer Selena.
Yolanda Saldivar was charged and was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole in thirty years and she will only get the chance of parole on march 30 of 2025.
