Yolanda Saldívar has confessed why she killed Selena Quintanilla 22 years ago. It’s a stunning revelation that almost seems unreal. For starters, you’d think that by now Saldívar – who’s been in prison for murder ever since – would have already owned up to her crime in some way or another. But that has not been the case, not in so many words anyway.
It’s being reported that Saldívar confessed to Univision about her reasoning behind fatally shooting Quintanilla that fateful day in Corpus Christi, Texas.
The confession, relayed to Univision is paraphrased as such: “She killed her because she wanted to simulate an assault to avoid going to jail and, above all, not to pay her the almost $200,000 she had stolen during her administration of clothing stores and the fan club.”
Univision has not aired the original exchange, as of yet.
It’s interesting to know this information now because who knows if that’s the truth or not. If Saldívar wanted to stage a robbery in order for Quintanilla to perhaps back down from demanding she quit the fan club and pay the money she had stolen, it’s certainly an odd way of doing it. It’s definitely desperate and senseless. However, Saldívar’s attempt to infer that it was an accident is a little too late.
This is not the first time Saldívar has made claims as to what took place 22 years ago. Last year, Saldívar told Univision that Quintanilla was pregnant at the time of the shooting. She’s also claiming the prison has violated her rights. What all of this says, is that Saldívar likes the attention. Saldívar should probably be aware that anything she claims to know will be taken with a grain of salt. It’s truly hard to believe anything that a murderer says.
