Why hasn’t there been an arrest in the Shanquella Robinson murder?
That is the question that social media is asking after it became clear that she didn’t die of alcohol poisoning but from a broken neck and back. You don’t get those types of injuries from drinking. A video shows Robinson being severely beaten by one of her friends minutes before she was pronounced dead.
So, why haven’t the Mexican authorities or US Government taken any action on the responsible parties?
When a 25-year-old North Carolina woman died suddenly while vacationing with friends in Mexico last month, the pals told her mom she had passed away after drinking too much.
“They said she wasn’t feeling well. She had alcohol poisoning,” Shanquella Robinson’s mother, Salamondra, told WJZY last week. “They couldn’t get a pulse. Each one of the people that was there with her was telling different stories.”
But a death certificate obtained by the local outlet reveals that Robinson died from a “severe spinal cord injury and atlas luxation,” that is, a loosening or detachment of her first vertebra from the base of the skull.
“When the autopsy came back, they said it didn’t have anything to do with the alcohol,” Salamondra said. “[They] said that she had a broken neck and her spine in the back was cracked. She had been beaten.”
On Tuesday, Gerald Jackson, a blogger in North Carolina, published video footage allegedly showing a violent fight between Robinson and another woman.
The death certificate said Shanquella had been “found unconscious in her living room,” but included nothing about alcohol poisoning or any intoxication, according to WJZY, which said the doctor who showed up attempted to revive Robinson by performing CPR, to no avail.
“How could they do this to my baby?” Bernard Robinson told The North Carolina Beat, Jackson’s website. “They all need to be in jail right now in Mexico and they shouldn’t have been let go.”
However, the State Department has reportedly said Mexican authorities don’t believe there is any clear evidence that foul play was involved in Robinson’s death.
Someone should be arrested, as this wasn’t an accident or alcohol poisoning.
