Yolanda SaldÃvar is a convicted murderer, born September 19, 1960. She was a nurse (with a college average of a "C") who went on to become Selena Quintanilla Perez's fan club president. She laundered money from Selena's fan club for her own personal use and when Abraham Quintanilla (Selena's fa…ther) found discrepancies with cancelled checks from Selena's fan club, he advised Selena of what was going on. Selena and her father confronted Yolanda about the checks and Yolanda acted like she didn't know what was going on. She and Selena set up a meeting early one morning at the Days Inn where Yolanda was staying and speculation is that Yolanda and Selena argued about the missing money and when Yolanda felt threatened and in backed in a corner, basically busted for her wrongdoing, she shot Selena more than once and chased her through the grounds of the hotel where Selena ultimately fell dead in the lobby.

If i was there i would of really hurt yolanda i would of snapped her ar…m and maybe break her leg but not kill her. The reason why she killed her because yolanda was jelous of Selena.She was getting blamed for stealing from Selena.Yolanda Salvidar really did steal from Selena She stole more than$30,000 dollars from Selena.Yolanda IS THE PRESIDENT of selenas fan club.She STOLE the MONEY that Selena's fans sent 2 her.well its 2010 and yolanda was faced to 30 yrs in prison.If i was the one to decide how long 4 yolanda 2 stay in jail i would of made her stay there the rest of her life.Who ever decided 4 yolanda 2 stay in prison for 30 yrs said that in 1995 so 2010-1995=15.SO 15+15=30.Yolanda has 15 more years of prison.

Yes. She originally approached Selena's father after a concert to discuss starting a fan club. After the idea was approved she became the President of the club. She later became the manager of Selena's clothing butiques. Was she CLOSE friends with Selena, not necessarily, but they did interact and w…ere on speaking terms. Cutting to the chase: they were close enough friends for Selena to be lured to the hotel where she died. ( Full Answer )
