FC: Yolanda Saldivar By:Will Evans and Matthew Houff
1: Yolanda Saldívar was born in San Antonio Texas on September 19, 1960. She received a bachelor degree in science and nursing in 1990 at the Texas A&M University.
2: One of Yolanda's employers, Doctor Gomez, sued her for 9,200 dollars, because he said that she had stolen from him ever since 1983. The lawsuit was settled in court. After a brief amount of time Yolanda was back in court when she couldn't pay off a student loan.
3: Saldivar went to a Selena concert and asked Abraham Quintanilla, Selena's father, if she could start a fan club in San Antonio. She was then promoted to manager of Selena's store, Selena Etc.
4: The Quintanilla family found out in 1995 that she had been embezzling money from the fan club, and then they fired her.
5: Soon after, Saldivar and Selena agreed to meet at a Days Inn Hotel, In Corpus Christi, Texas to get financial records that she had refused to surrender over to the Quintanillas.
6: In retaliation, she took out a revolver form her purse, and proceeded to point it at Selena. Selena attempted to escape, but Saldivar shot her once in the right shoulder.
7: Severely wounded Selena ran toward the lobby for help. She then fell to the floor as the clerk was calling 911. Sixteen days from her 24th birthday she died in a hospital at 1:05 because she lost too much blood.
8: Saldivar was convicted of murder and was sentenced to a life of prison on October 23, 1995, with parole eligibility in 30 years.
9: Saldivar is currently serving her sentence at the Mountain View unit in Gatesville, Texas. Due to many death threats from Selena fan inmates, she was placed in isolation. She spends 23 hours alone a day in her 7x9 ft. cell.
