Selena Quintanilla Perez was proud to call Corpus home before her tragic death. We also have a Selena Museum in Corpus and many people still leave flowers where she rest, but over 30k people visit her memorial along the water every year. Most days there will be crowd around the statue and a speaker playing her English and Spanish hits.
