At least one of the “friends” traveling with Shanquella Robinson when she died will soon face Mexican authorities.
According to multiple reports, the local prosecutor announced the arrest warrant on Wednesday. Prosecutor Daniel de la Rosa Anaya said the perpetrator was a friend who was a “direct attacker.”
Although officials have not named the accused, some speculate the prosecutor is referring to Dejahnae Jackson — who was seen in a viral video beating Robinson. However, this has note been confirmed. It is unclear if the video shows when Shanquella was fatally injured.
“This case is fully litigated, we even have a court order, there is an arrest warrant issued for the crime of femicide against the victim and against the alleged perpetrator, her friend who is the direct assailant.” In fact, it was not an argument, but direct aggression,” said Daniel. “We are carrying out all the appropriate procedures such as an Interpol alert and a request for extradition to the United States.” It’s about two Americans, the victim and the perpetrator.”
Meanwhile, just a few days ago, the FBI’s Charlotte field office confirmed it The shadow room that they were investigating the matter. On the other hand. they would not release further details due to the active status of the case.

What happened to Shanquella Robinson?
As previously reported, Shanquella died during a birthday vacation to celebrate one of his friends. She was in Mexico with a group of about six people, who eventually traveled back to the United States without her body after her mysterious death.
Shanquella’s mother, Salamondra, received conflicting reports of her daughter’s death from the group. While still in Mexico, she received calls that Shanquella was unwell, suffering from alcohol poisoning and no pulse.
Salamondra later received an autopsy report from Mexican officials that concluded alcohol was not the cause of Shanquella’s death. Instead, the report found that she suffered “severe spinal cord injury and atlas luxation,” which could indicate a broken neck. Although the US State Department in Mexico initially denied that Robinson was murdered, a video of Jackson allegedly beating an unwitting and naked Shanquella points to a violent end.

A police report adds autopsy report information
According to a recently reviewed excerpt from a Mexican police report, a doctor spent nearly three hours with Robinson before she passed. The report states that the tour group requested medical attention around 2:13 p.m. Local doctor, Dr. Gutiérrez from the American Medical Center, arrived an hour later. Upon arrival, Dr. Gutiérrez tried to give Shanquella an IV after her friends insisted she did “drink a lot of alcohol”. However, it was not successful. Robinson argued “stable vital signs” despite dehydration and inability to verbally communicate.
After the examination, the doctor told his friends to take Robinson to the hospital, but they required treatment at their cottage. An hour after Dr. Gutiérrez arrived, Shanquella had a seizure and someone called 911. Doctors began CPR after losing a pulse at 4:49 p.m. About 30 minutes later paramedics had “Given a total of 14 rounds of CPR, five doses of epinephrine and six discharges (AED shock without success.”
Officials pronounced the 25-year-old dead at 5:57 p.m. on Oct. 29 — about 24 hours after arriving in Cabo San Lucas. The police report does not mention the physical injuries described in the autopsy report. Additionally, the timeline differs from the autopsy, which states that medics arrived to treat Shanquella at 3:00 p.m., and she died within 15 minutes of arriving.
CNN reports that the woman in the case is a suspect and has not been charged. It is not yet known whether the handover will take place before the December holidays. Shanquella’s mother responded to the arrest warrant in a comment ABC news on Wednesday.
“I feel so good, it’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,” Salamondra said.
