Welcome signs proclaim it “America’s Most Beautiful Small Town.” It’s considered the Bourbon Capital of the World. And in many ways, Bardstown, Kentucky is just like a lot of small, tight-knit communities all across the country. But just under the surface, there’s something darker. Not everyone wants to talk about it. And a lot of people would rather forget. That’s because since 2013, Bardstown has also been the site of five unsolved murders. Now, the team behind “Bomber,” “True Crime Chronicles,” and “88 Days” is digging into these cases to find out what’s really happening in Bardstown, and whether these murders could be related. And along the way uncovering a history of violence and fear in this otherwise quintessential southern town. Bardstown launches August 28.

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

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Selena: A Star Dies in Texas is now live!

Podcast cover

1995 was supposed to be a breakout year for Selena Quintanilla-Pérez. Already a multi-platinum recording artist and Grammy Award winner who was dubbed the “Queen of Tejano Music,” Selena and her band played to a sold-out Houston Astrodome in February, and an upcoming crossover album was set to launch her into mainstream superstardom. Yet there were long-simmering tensions in Selena’s personal and business life that were about to alter the course of her life.

On March 31, 1995, in a motel room in Corpus Christi, Selena was gunned down by her close friend and fan club manager Yolanda Saldívar.

25 years later, VAULT Studios brings these events to life in “Selena: A Star Dies in Texas,” a new podcast series that dives deep into Selena’s life, death and legacy.
