The letter began detailing what occurred the day Robinson died and after. In the second paragraph, Crump and Sue-Ann added that one of the travelers shared the video of Robinson getting beaten while naked. It circled Winston Salem University’s campus, which Robinson attended.
“The video shows Shanquella being beaten in the villa while naked by one of the six travel mates who was identified by a witness as Dejahanae Jackson,” the letter read.
It continued, “The Attorney General’s Office in Baja California Sur initiated a criminal investigation. As a result of the investigation, a warrant was issued for Daejahnea Jackson by Mexican Law Enforcement, one of the six travel mates who fled to the United States after Shanquella was pronounced dead.”
The letter claimed Jackson was the perpetrator of the femicide, a homicide committed by a female.
They said Robinson’s murderer could face charges in America even if she allegedly killed her in Mexico.
“Federal charges are brought in cases where the crime involves interstate commerce or federal law enforcement agencies,” Crump and Sue-Ann wrote. “We know in a transnational case where evidence was possibly transported and persons of interest communicated with each other via cellphone federal charges could be brought against those responsible for Shanquella’s death.”
As Sis2Sis reported, Robinson died less than 24 hours after landing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, on Oct. 28. Video captured Robinson being beaten to death by her alleged “friend” inside the villa (Cabo Villas) they rented while the others in the group instigated.
Following the murder, the travelers returned to the U.S., telling Robinson’s mother that her daughter died from poisoning while dropping off her daughter’s luggage.
A testimony from a couple of employees at the villa was attached to the letter. An unnamed concierge gave investigators exquisite details, from how each traveler acted to their behavior after learning about Robinson’s death.
One part that stuck out was when the concierge assisted the group during dinner, highlighting Robinson seemed outcasted and had a “strange…attitude.”
“When I introduced myself, she did not greet me or smile, she was indifferent, nothing to do with the atmosphere of celebration. She was out of place at that party,” the concierge said.
The day after the fight, Jackson asked the concierge if he could transport them to the nearest medical facility because Robinson had alcohol poisoning. He offered to bring a doctor to them, a $100 charge for the visit and medicine. Jackson agreed.
Later, the concierge discovered Robinson had died and offered his condolences. He said he gave Jackson a hug, which he described as “indifferent” and “cold.”
Upon giving Robinson’s so-called friends the space to grieve, he could hear laughing. Jackson then texted him for transportation to get dinner. He completed Jackson’s request but would learn after the transfer service ended because the driver transported them to the airport.
“The next day [eradicated] called me to tell me that the maid was reporting that there was no one in the villa, that if I had been notified that they were leaving, to which I replied that no, that the day before they had only requested transportation to the center.”
A medical examiner, Dr. Rene Adalberto Galvaan Osegura, performed an autopsy on Robinson on Oct. 30 in Mexico. Results showed the young woman suffered a head injury and ruled she died from a cervical fracture, indicating the alcohol poisoning story was a lie.
