25-year-old Shanquella Robinson’s family is mourning a great loss after the Charlotte, North Carolina entrepreneur died on a trip to Cabo, Mexico, with a group of friends over Halloween weekend.
Her parents, Bernard and Salamondra Robinson, are seeking answers as to what happened to their daughter.
“[I] spoke with her Friday evening she was having dinner and I never spoke with her again,” Salamondra said. “On Saturday evening, they called and said she wasn’t feeling well, and they were going to call a doctor. And when they called, the doctor hadn’t arrived yet, but they said she had alcohol poisoning.”
The Robinsons were told that Shanquella died from alcohol poisoning, but they aren’t convinced that is actually the case.
“After they said it was alcohol poisoning, we received the autopsy report on Thursday and it said that her neck had been broken and she had a back spasm there was a crack, spinal cord was crack,” her parents said. “That took it to a whole ‘nother level because that meant somebody had attacked her.”
Because Shanquella died in Mexico, national agencies are investigating the incident.

The U.S. Department of State issued the following statement:
“We are aware of these reports. Protecting the welfare of U.S. citizens overseas is among our top priorities. Out of respect for the privacy of those involved, we have no further comment at this time.”
Shanquella’s body arrived back in Charlotte on Thursday, and a funeral service has been scheduled for next Saturday.
Watched alleged video of what happened to Shanquella below. RIP.
Six friends who traveled with Robinson
The six buddies that traveled with Robinson to Mexico were depicted in pictures provided to The North Carolina Beat. Strangely, there is no internet access to the social media accounts of friends Khalil Cooke, Malik Dyer, Wenter Donovan, Alysse Hyatt, Daejhanae Jackson, and Nazeer Wiggins. This seemed strange to internet users.
Shanquella Robinson death case: Explained (Nov-12)
After the entrepreneur from Charlotte, North Carolina, Shanquella Robinson, 25, passed away while traveling to Cabo, Mexico, with several friends over the weekend of Halloween, her family is in deep sorrow.
Bernard and Salamondra Robinson, her parents, are looking for information about what happened to their daughter.
According to Shanquella Robinson’s mother Salamondra Robinson, she won’t feel at ease until someone is taken into custody.
Both the cause of Shanquella Robinson’s death, at age 25, and whether anyone should be arrested are still up in the air.
Shanquella Robinson who was widely renowned for her braiding hair business was discovered dead in Mexico after only one day of travel. Her family claims that Robinson’s acquaintances informed them that she was intoxicated.
Salamondra stated, “They had a villa, and they spent the entire night there.” They hardly left the house.
She explained, “No one told the same story, so I never believed them anyhow.
Shanquella Robinson’s Autopsy reports
Robinson’s death certificate, which Queen City News received, states serious spinal cord injury and atlas luxation as the causes of death.
That indicates instability in the top vertebrae. The line “individual discovered unconscious in her living room” appears in the part where officers could have seen any signs of alcohol.
Salamondra remarked, “They didn’t call us until the last minute, and on top of that, they stated the maid found her.
On cabovillas.com, a home called Villa Linda 32 was where the group lodged. According to a corporate representative, the group requested assistance from the concierge Saturday afternoon.
The concierge made a doctor-on-call, who performed CPR. Robinson passed away at 3 p.m., roughly 15 minutes after being hurt.
The seven visitors that checked into the villa were listed, and Queen City News was able to reach them at the phone numbers they left for the rental agency. Other numbers went to voicemail while some were invalid.
Was it a violent or accidental death? is written on the death certificate
It’s unclear which option the authorities intended to choose since “Yes” was put into that section.
Before this, the U.S. State Department informed Queen City News that according to Mexican authorities, there isn’t any conclusive proof that Robinson was killed.
Her death was not caused by drinking, according to Shanquella’s autopsy, which also found that she had been beaten and suffered from a broken neck and a cracked spine.
Salamondra claimed that Shanquella’s face was swollen, she had a knot on her head, her eyes were swollen, and her lips were split in images that were sent to her and her family.
Internet users furious with FBI conclusions regarding the death of Shanquella Robinson
When it was discovered that Robinson did not pass away from alcohol poisoning, internet users were furious. Many questioned the innocence of the victim’s companions. The six individuals who traveled to Mexico with Shanquella Robinson were blamed by several online users.
Several tweets stated:
Omgggg I didn’t know she died!!!! This is exactly what happened to Keeneka Jenkins in Chicago a few years back! I hope they all get punished. Justice for Shanquells Robinson!
Mark Freeman said,
All the friends would have had mysterious accidents that resulted in their death if that was my daughter. They show no remorse.
It’s so sad how people would secretly hate you and start plotting on you! She was invited on the trip because they had all this plotted already..within 24hrs of arriving she’s dead? No way.
It’s very suspicious that you can’t find any of them on social media. They’re guilty.
Nah those “friends” did something to her. Even if it was an “accident”. They did it or know which ones did. Smh
Tina snow tweeted,
That’s disturbing & I hope the family gets justice
The victim’s family was concerned about the primary cause of death
In an interview, Shanquella Robinson’s sister Quilla Long disclosed that the family had received phone calls from individuals in Mexico who claimed that Robinson was physically assaulted during a fight. The family continued to accept the alcohol poisoning allegations, nonetheless.
Long also stated that Cooke seemed nervous when he met the family. The victim’s mother said
“Now that stuff did happen, I can go back and say “that’s why he was pacing,” I mean, you would have thought he was coming off something like he was high. He was nervous, he was sweating, and grabbing his beard… It had to be eating him up then.”
Bernard, the victim’s father, said that he thinks Cooke is aware of Robinson’s death.
“They left her there,” man, an emotional Bernard, said. “They left my daughter over there. I can’t believe it.”Bernard stated repeatedly: “He knows what happened. He knows what happened”
After Robinson passed away, the victim’s pals went back to their homes, but Robinson’s body was still in Mexico. The victim’s body was delivered to his or her house two weeks and $6,000 later.
The Charlotte office of the FBI has been asked to help investigate the victim’s death mystery. Robinson’s family has also been advised to consult a private eye.
A new update: A Shanquella Robinson friend speaks out.
One friend of Shanquella’s has only recently spoken out about the horrific event. One of her purported companions claimed they were not there during the incident in a video that The Neighborhood Talk was able to obtain.
The unidentified individual asserted that he didn’t get to Cabo until the next day after everyone else did.
