A family in Charlotte, North Carolina, is trying to determine how a 25-year-old woman died in Mexico. There have been multiple reports as to what happened at a villa in Cabo.
Shanquella Robinson and her friends had traveled to Cabo for one of their birthdays.
Robinson’s mother stated that the last time that she had spoken to her daughter she had told her that the group was getting ready to eat and that she loved her.
Salamondra Robinson, the woman’s mother, stated that her daughter died within just one day of arriving in Mexico.
Robinson’s friends had called stating that Shanquella wasn’t feeling well and had alcohol poisoning. The friends said that she had no pulse, but their stories weren’t adding up, the mother said.
When the family contacted the FBI and officials in Mexico, they found out about another possible cause of death.
“…they said that she had a broken neck and her spine in the back was cracked. She had been beaten.”
Salmondra added that the group came back from Mexico but left Robinson’s remains there. Now, almost two weeks and $6,000 later, her body is back in the states, but the family hasn’t gotten much more information.
“I know that’s not going to bring my child back, but I want something done about it,” the mother expressed.
The U.S. State Department in Mexico has refuted the claim that Robinson was killed. They cited that the police’s first indication was that there was no proof of foul play.
However, her relatives refuse to believe that her death was an accident. They are now making it their mission to find out what happened that evening in Cabo.
An official with the State Department said that they are assisting the family in getting documents from authorities in Mexico. They have urged the family to hire a private investigator and lawyer if they believe that Shanquella’s death is suspicious.
