Selena Quintanilla's unexpected death in 1995 was one the first celebrity deaths that many of us 80s and 90s kids really mourned.
The 23-year-old Tejano singer was on the way to international super stardom when her life was cut short by Yolanda Saldivar, her friend and former manager of Selena Etc. boutiques.
Selena discovered that Yolanda was part of a money embezzlement scheme involving her fan club and the clothing boutiques. As a result, Yolanda was fired, but initially refused to hand over the financial records.
Three weeks later, Selena set up a meeting with her at a Days Inn motel in Corpus Christi, Texas, to retrieve the papers, but in a tragic turn of events, she ended up being shot to death.
The "Dreaming of You" singer's story was brought to life in the 1997 film, Selena, starring Jennifer Lopez. The movie included some real-life footage of the late icon, giving the viewer a glimpse into what she was when she was alive.
