Pop star Selena's murderer has 'bounty on her head' as she eyes freedom within two years

Pop star Selena's murderer allegedly has a 'bounty on her head' as she hopes to have freedom within two years.

The American artist - who achieved fame for her career in both Spanish and English - was fatally shot by the president of her fan club Yolanda Saldívar on March 31, 1995.

Selena Quintanilla Pérez was aged just 23 when she was murdered.

She was dubbed the 'Queen of Tejano Music', referring to a style which fused Mexican and US influences.
The perpetrator became president of Selena's fan club in 1991 after she was appointed by Selena's father and manager, Abraham Quintanilla Jr.
After Saldívar was promoted to manager of the singer's boutiques in January 1994, employees began complaining about her management style.

Quintanilla Jr. later learnt that Saldívar had embezzled $60,000 from the fan club.

When confronting her at a Corpus Christi hotel, Saldívar shot and killed Selena in the back with a .38 special revolver.

Selena was declared dead at Corpus Christi Memorial Hospital, just 90 minutes after the shooting.
After serving a life sentence for Selena's murder, Saldívar, now aged 62, hopes to be released when she's up for parole in March 2025.

However, it is being reported by The Messenger that 'everyone wants to get her', according to people close to her.

When she was moved through the prison corridors, at least two women were restrained by guards after lunging out at her at her, a former inmate told the outlet.

"She is despised," the former inmate claims.

"Everyone wants to get her. She's the most hated person at Mountain View."
"There's a bounty on her head," a relative also alleged.

"She says she doesn't feel safe in prison, which is why she wants to get out."

Former inmate, Yesenia Dominguez, says that Saldívar is rarely seen but often talked about.

"Everyone was always like, 'let me have five minutes with that b****,'" says Dominguez.

"Everyone wanted to get justice for Selena."

"We kept the other inmates away from her," a former guard added.

"But there were credible threats sometimes. But our job is to keep her safe, no matter how many people hate her."

In a 2018 interview with Univision's Primer Impacto, Selena's father said (translated from Spanish): "To this day, we still receive letters from women who are in the same prison where they say they are waiting for her.

"That they are going to kill her. There are bad women in there. Women who have murdered other people in the past. That is why they are in there. They have nothing to lose."
