An arrest warrant has been issued for the friend of 25-year-old Shanquella Robinson who was found dead in her hotel room while on vacation in Cabo.
Robinson traveled from North Carolina to Mexico with her friend to enjoy a getaway vacation, however, she was found unconscious one morning in the vacation rental.
Robinson’s death certificate was classified as “accidental or violent” and the cause of death listed as “severe spinal cord injury and atlas luxation” which led her family demanding answers as to what happened to her. Shortly after her death, a video surfaced showing her being beaten in the vacation rental.
Mexican authorities along with the FBI investigated the incident further and on Thursday, Mexican prosecutors said Robinson’s death was the result of a direct attack.
An arrest warrant was issued shortly after for the friend, however, authorities have not legally disclosed the name.
According to the attorney general for Mexico’s Baja California Sur, Daniel de la Rosa, the extradition process is already underway.
