Many of us know the events that occurred that fateful morning in the hotel of Corpus Christi on March 31, 1995, however, Saldívar herself has never admitted why other than to testify in court that it was an accident.

According to a Televisa report through Univision, "She killed her because she wanted to feign an assault to avoid going to jail and, above all, not have to pay her the almost 200 thousand dollars she had stolen during her administration of clothing stores and the Selena fan club." No video or audio recording has been aired by Univision as of yet.

This is not the first time Saldívar has taken it upon herself to make claims of the Queen of Tejano. During an interview, Saldivar said Selena was pregnant but also contradicted herself when she added that her fingerprints were not on the gun that killed the singer.

It is unclear why Saldívar would reveal her motives when her alleged accident statement is precisely the reason why she has the right to request parole on March 30, 2025.
