HOAX: Killer To Be Released
A fake article circulating claims that the murderer of "Tejano Queen" Selena, may be given an early release from prison.

This fraudulent claim comes from satire site National Report. The brief, fabricated article asserts that Yolanda Saldivar could be released in January of 2015 due to a deteriorating health condition. Included in the column is a false quote attributed to a health coordinator (likely a non-existent person) at the prison where Saldivar is being held.

At the end of the article, there is a link to a petition on It should be noted that this petition was started on December 8th of 2014, and may have been posted by someone associated with National Report.

A visit to the website of the Texas Department of Justice reveals that Saldivar's potential parole date of 2025 has not been changed.

National Report is well-known for creating fake news stories in the name of satire. However, these satire stories often do not contain elements of humor, and frequently exploit fears or hot button topics to draw in traffic/income.
In Conclusion; The murderer of Selena, is not being granted an early release from prison. This claim comes from National Report, a satire site which publishes fake news stories.

On a side note, I always recommend to look at the source of any news article, If it is not from a source you recognize or trust, most likely it's not valid.
Many Media sources from South Texas to Perez Hilton and even TMZ have covered this topic to help spread the truth about the hoax:
