Prosecutor Issues Arrest Warrant for Femicide in the Death of an American Lady in Mexico
According to a local prosecutor, an arrest warrant was issued Wednesday in the death of 25-year-old Shanquella Robinson, an American woman vacationing in Mexico, for an unnamed accused offender.
“This case has been thoroughly investigated, and an arrest warrant has been issued for the crime of femicide against the victim and against an alleged offender, a friend of hers who is the direct aggressor.
It wasn’t a quarrel, but rather an act of blatant attack. We are carrying out the necessary procedures, such as the Interpol alert and the extradition request to the United States of America.
It revolves around two Americans, the victim, and the perpetrator…” According to Daniel de la Rosa Anaya, local prosecutor for the state of Baja California Sur.
Salamandra Robinson, Shanquella Robinson’s mother, talked to on Wednesday, and when told that an arrest warrant has been filed for the crime against her daughter and hearing the news for the first time, she reacted, “That’s a fantastic feeling, I feel so good.
That’s what we’ve been hoping for: someone to be held accountable and arrested. I can’t wait for justice to be done.”
As the FBI investigates Robinson’s death, Mexican authorities confirmed Tuesday night that Robinson may have been alive and receiving medical attention for several hours before authorities arrived and proclaimed her dead, has discovered.
Robinson’s pals were allegedly instructed by a medical practitioner on the scene that Robinson was inebriated and dehydrated and that they should take her to the hospital. According to authorities, they refused to do so.
The latest study contradicts the previous autopsy report acquired, which stated that medical personnel arrived at Robinson’s villa at 3 p.m. and certified her dead within 15 minutes. Robinson died as a result of serious spinal cord damage and a dislocated neck, according to the autopsy.
The authorities have yet to react to requests for comment on the discrepancy between their report and the autopsy.
Robinson’s pals requested a medical consultation around 2:13 p.m., according to the latest police report.
When an American Medical Center general practitioner arrived at the address in Puerto Los Cabos, Robinson’s companions informed the doctor that she had consumed a large amount of alcohol.
According to the police report, medical officials found Robinson had a poor verbal reaction, was inebriated, and dehydrated, but had stable vital signs.
According to the report, the medical professional on the scene recommended Robinson’s companions take her to a hospital, but her pals requested she stay at the property.
Robinson began seizing at about 4:20 p.m., which is when one of Robinson’s friends, Winter Essence Donovan, contacted 911. According to the police report, Robinson began having difficulties breathing and had a lowered pulse when emergency medical personnel arrived.
The general practitioner stated that they stopped feeling Robinson’s pulse at 4:49 p.m. and began CPR until paramedics came. They tried 14 CPR treatments and five doses of adrenaline with no luck.
According to the police report, Robinson went into an asystole state (a sort of cardiac arrest). Robinson was confirmed dead at 5:57 p.m., according to the report.
According to the latest police report, Donovan notified Mexican authorities of Robinson’s health at about 5 p.m. local time.
Donovan and all of Robinson’s Cabo buddies have not replied to persistent attempts for comment.
The FBI launched an investigation into Robinson’s killing earlier this month, which Mexican authorities are treating as femicide, or gender-based violence.
Robinson, of Charlotte, North Carolina, traveled to San Jose del Cabo, a vacation city on Mexico’s Baja California peninsula, with six pals on Oct. 28.
According to Robinson’s family, they stayed in a rental villa in Fundadores, an elite gated enclave with holiday houses and a private beach club.
The next day, Robinson’s parents stated they received a frantic phone call from their daughter’s pals informing them that she had died.
Robinson’s family is still seeking answers from her friends who knew what happened that weekend in Cabo, despite all of the new and evolving facts.
Salamandra Robinson, Shanquella Robinson’s mother, said she’s relieved the FBI has stepped in to help solve her daughter’s case so it “won’t be in vain.”
“I’d want to see them all sent back to Mexico because their plan was to come back here thinking they wouldn’t be prosecuted,” Robinson. “She was a kind person, and I want them to remember that. We’re going to carry on her legacy.”
