Federal prosecutors won’t file charges in Shanquella Robinson’s death

Prosecutors in the United States will not bring charges in what was previously a federal investigation into the death of Shanquella Robinson.

Robinson of Charlotte, North Carolina, died while in Mexico last October.

Officials with U.S. Attorneys’ Offices in two districts in North Carolina announced the decision in a statement on Wednesday.

“The investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Ms. Robinson has been a priority for federal prosecutors and the FBI.”

The statement was issued by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the western district of North Carolina.

Shanquella Robinson, the 25-year old died on October 29, 2022, while on a trip with friends to Cabo, Mexico.

As previously reported, Robinson, arrived in the town of San José del Cabo, a resort city on the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula, with six friends.

A day later, she was found dead in the rental property where they were staying.

Robinson’s friends told her mother that she’d died of alcohol poisoning.

However, Mexican officials said Robinson died of a cracked spine.

After those details were shared with the public and a video emerged, showing Robinson getting brutally beaten by her “friends” during the trip. it raised many questions about her death.
