New details emerged about the death of 25-year-old Shanquella Robinson, who died in late October in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, following a fight in a hotel room.
According to The Charlotte Observer, a local doctor treated the hair stylist while she was alive for nearly three hours in the hotel room. The outlet received the police report containing information contradicting her death certificate, which reported that she died within 15 minutes after damage to her spinal cord.
But the police report read that the local doctor, Dr. Karolina Beatriz Ornelas Gutiérrez of the American Medical Center, received a call for medical assistance at 2:13 p.m. that day. After the “friends” Robinson was with informed the doctor that she had consumed a lot of alcohol, Gutiérrez ruled that she needed an IV.
Gutiérrez didn’t find anything troublesome because the 25-year-old woman had stable vital signs and dehydration. The people Robinson vacationed with declined the doctor’s request to take her to a hospital. Robinson then started to have a seizure that only lasted less than a minute. After dialing 911, Gutiérrez and her so-called “friends” performed CPR on her once her heart stopped.
The local doctor declared Robinson dead at 5:57 p.m. after the “14 rounds of CPR, five doses of adrenaline and six discharges (AED shocks)” failed.
One of the friends, Khalil Cooke, notified Robinson’s mother that she died from alcohol poisoning, but she was informed afterward that her daughter’s death had nothing to do with alcohol.
A viral video showed Robinson being beaten by one of the females in the hotel room, and Robinson not defending herself. A man behind the camera could be heard telling Robinson to fight back.
BuzzFeed reported that Daniel de la Rosa, an Attorney General for Mexico’s Baja California Sur, stated that authorities issued an arrest warrant for a suspect in Robinson’s death.
The 25-year-old’s sister, Quilla Long, started a GoFundMe on Nov. 17, writing in the description that the United States State Department claimed there was no “evidence of foul play” despite the video of Robinson being attacked floating around.
