Mexican prosecutors issue warrant for murder suspect of North Carolina woman Shanquella Robinson who was brutally beaten in hotel room – alleged perpetrator unnamed but is a FRIEND
- Shanquella Robinson, 25, was part of a group that traveled from Charlotte to Cabo on Oct. 28 and rented a villa to celebrate a friend’s birthday
- She was found dead the next day when her friends told her mother she had died of alcohol poisoning
- Video later emerged of Robinson being beaten naked in a hotel room, leading to a broken neck
- Baja California Sur prosecutor Daniel de la Rosa said his office has issued an arrest warrant and started the extradition process for a suspect in the US murder.
- Reacting to the news, Robinson’s mother Salamondra said, “I feel so good, that’s a good feeling.” I just can’t wait for justice to be served.’
An arrest warrant has been issued and extradition proceedings have been launched in Mexico for the suspect in the murder of 25-year-old Shanquella Robinson.
Robinson, a North Carolina resident, was reportedly beaten to death on October 28 while vacationing with a group of six others in Cabo.
It appears that the suspect in the crime was a friend of Robinson’s. The suspect is not named in the arrest warrant.
In an interview with ABC news on Wednesday, Baja California Sur prosecutor Daniel de la Rosa Anaya said, “We are carrying out all relevant procedures, such as the Interpol warning and the request for extradition to the United States of America.”
Anaya added: “It involves two Americans, the victim and the perpetrator.”
In the immediate aftermath of Robinson’s death, her family was told by her friends that she had died due to alcohol poisoning, a story that quickly fell apart under scrutiny.
The prosecutor in the case also said, “This case has been fully clarified, we even have a court order, an arrest warrant has been issued for the crime of femicide against the victim and against an alleged perpetrator, a friend of hers who is the direct aggressor.’
At one point, Robinson began to grab as Dr. Gutiérrez took care of her. The convulsions lasted less than a minute. Later, after Dr. Gutierrez lost Robinson’s pulse, CPR, AED and several adrenaline rushes were administered in an attempt to save the 25-year-old’s life
After news of the injunction was announced, her mother, Salamondra Robinson, told ABC News, “I feel so good, that’s a good feeling.” That’s what we’ve been waiting for, for someone to finally be held accountable and arrested. I just can’t wait for justice to be served.’
