    VAULT Studios presents "Selena: A Star Dies in Texas"

    Twenty-five years ago, Selena Quintanilla-Perez was already a legend in the Tejano music world and on the verge of superstardom. But on March 31, 1995, Selena’s close friend Yolanda Saldívar pulled a gun from her purse and fired a single bullet. Selena was pronounced dead a short time later. 
    Selena’s murder left her family, friends and fans around the world stunned, heartbroken and speechless. In the days, months and years that followed, one question would linger: "why?" Why would someone who claimed to be the singer’s best friend, someone so close to her, choose to end her life? What events in the hours and days before the murder led Saldívar to kill Selena? 
    With access to an extraordinary archive of rare and never-before-heard audio from our network of TV newsrooms across Texas, VAULT Studios, the network behind Bardstown and The Officer’s Wife, brings you the story of a superstar, a superfan, and the shocking murder that ended the life of a bright young star.
    Selena: A Star Dies in Texas is coming this Spring.

Great coverage!

This podcast and the journalists behind it are great! There’s great interviews, good sound quality, and a cohesive story. This cop is a coward!, and deserves to be in jail. Haven’t listened to the whole podcast yet, so I don’t know how it ends. Listen carefully to Episode 2 @ the 23:30 marker. Suspect says, “Here Lately”; just like the false text message he sent from the victim’s phone. To me, that is direct evidence of guilt!! Proof of first degree murder, had his wife not survived the attack. I’d give him the max sentence.

Dirty cops need to be stopped!!!

Great podcast. I sure hope this puts a spotlight on this dirty police force and their deliberate actions to cover up for their fellow officers. The extent that these investors and officers will go to aid in this cover-up is truly scary. I hope the right ppl will hear this case and will legally go after these officers who believe they are above the law and feel justified to help cover-up an attempted murder. Terrifying that he has his kids!!!!

The dog

They mentioned a dog briefly. But never followed up with any details. Minor point I know. But I’m curious.
