Shanquella Robinson, whose death during a vacation in Cabo, Mexico, has been shrouded in mystery, is now even murkier after the FBI released a statement saying it will not release her autopsy results.
The attorney representing Shanquella’s family is upset with the FBI’s “lack of transparency” in the case of their loved one’s mysterious death in a Cabo San Lucas hotel room on October 29, Radar reported.
The 25-year-old North Carolina native’s death was reported as alcohol poisoning, but a video of her alleged friends beating her led the Internet to believe she was murdered out of spite.
An autopsy by local Mexican authorities revealed that Shanquella suffered a broken neck and other trauma.
In addition to what people are saying about Shanquella online, her mother, Sallamondra, also believes her friends are the cause of her daughter’s death.
The full, Mexican autopsy is being blocked by the FBI.
The FBI investigated Robinson’s death and interviewed her friends, but no arrests have been made.
“The FBI says we cannot release the documents [autopsy results] to you because the case is still open, because we are waiting for documents to be translated to English that we received from the Mexican authorities,” Sue-Ann Robinson, the family lawyer who shares the same last name but is not related, told The U.S. Sun.
“Which again, red flags everywhere because you’ve made a decision in the case, you’ve announced the decision publicly to the family and to the public, but you’re saying the case is still not closed and admitting that some of the documents from the investigative file that arguably would affect your decision to charge have not been fully translated,” Sue-Ann continued.
Shanquella was born on Jan. 9, 1997, in Charlotte, North Carolina.
She graduated from West Charlotte High School in 2015 and attended Winston-Salem State University, where she studied business administration.
After college, Robinson founded her own women’s fashion clothing line called “Shanquella Robinson Designs.” She also worked as a hairstylist and was a social media influencer with over 100,000 followers on Instagram.
“The family is deeply disappointed,” the lawyer told The Sun. “They’re concerned, obviously, about the red flags and the lack of transparency in the investigation, but they’re not deterred.”
