Saldaña was killed on Oct. 26 as she drove down a Fort Worth highway, and less than a couple weeks after she found a tracking device on her car, according to Szeliga’s arrest warrant. The first detective to arrive on the scene said Saldana’s car had three bullet holes in it. He later found three shell casings and broken glass at the intersection of Amon Carter Blvd. and State HWY 183. The detective said he believes she was shot there before entering the freeway.READ MORE: Fort Worth ISD Hopes To Hire Teachers 'On The Spot,' Offering Huge Incentives
During the investigation, it was revealed that Saldaña had complained about Szeliga stalking her. Detectives saw one of Saldaña’s Instagram posts from Oct. 14, which showed a tracker Szeliga had allegedly placed on her car. Saldaña’s family also told the Fort Worth Police Homicide Office that she was afraid of Szeliga because he was “stalking and harassing” her.
When detectives showed up to Szeliga’s home with a warrant, he refused to exit and eventually “caused a self-inflicted wound” to his neck that required medical attention.MORE NEWS: Delivery Drones Buzzing Over Some North Texas Cities
