Season three of the HLN original true-crime documentary series How It Really Happened with Hill Harper premiered earlier this month and has since aired a four-part episode on serial killer, rapist and necrophile Ted Bundy and a two-part episode on killer Jodi Arias.

On October 24, San Antonio will get to see a preview screening of the show’s November 4 episode, Selena: Fatal Encounter, which revisits the life and shocking 1995 murder of 23-year-old Queen of Tejano music Selena Quintanilla-Perez at the hands of her fan-club president and friend Yolanda Saldivar. The 42-minute episode includes interviews with Larry Young, former Corpus Christi police officer and hostage and crisis negotiator; Elissa Sterling, former assistant district attorney; and Martin Gomez, former fashion designer for Selena’s clothing line.

After the screening, the episode will be discussed with a panel of special guests, including Joe Nick Patoski, author of Selena: Como la Flor; Nancy Duffy, showrunner for CNN and HLN; and Carlos Valdez, lead prosecutor in the case against Saldivar, who was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison.

$5, Wed Oct. 24, 7pm, Guadalupe Theater, 1301 Guadalupe St., (210) 271-3151,
