After Killing Pop Star Selena Quintanilla, Yolanda Saldívar May Be Safer In Prison

The world of Tejano music was rocked by the murder of singer Selena Quintanilla-Pérez on March 31, 1995. And 22 years later, we still don’t know exactly why Yolanda Saldívar pulled the trigger.

Yolanda was a registered nurse who became the president of Selena’s San Antonio fan club and then the manager of her clothing boutiques. But the Quintanilla family realized the then 34-year-old was embezzling money, as Selena’s father, Abraham Quintanilla Jr., told The New York Times in 1995. Selena demanded that Yolanda hand over some of the boutique’s financial documents, so they agreed to meet at a Days Inn motel in Corpus Christi, TX. In the course of that meeting, Yolanda pulled out a gun and shot Selena. The singer died from a loss of blood in the hospital an hour later. She was 23 years old.

Yolanda was convicted of murder in the first-degree and was

This Texas City Singer Reenacts Selena’s Life in Murder Made Me Famous: Yolanda Saldivar

Amanda Solis has always had a tough time dealing with death, at least since she lost her parents in a car crash when she was 6 years old. In hindsight, there was some troubling irony when she auditioned for an upcoming episode of Murder Made Me Famous, the docudrama series this time focusing on Yolanda Saldivar, the woman who killed Tejano superstar Selena Quintanilla in Corpus Christi on March 31, 1995.

When she first watched Selena perform on television years ago, Solis couldn’t believe how much her mom resembled the superstar. From the bustier to the high-waisted pants to the beautiful round face and full lips, her mom had the same ‘90s Mexican-American look.
