It’s been one year since Shanquella Robinson died after traveling to Mexico with six “friends” and no one has been held accountable.
The 25-year-old Charlotte, North Carolina entrepreneur traveled to Cabo, Mexico with friends for a birthday celebration on October 28, 2022, and was dead within 24 hours of her arrival.
Initially, Shanquella’s travel companions told her mother that she died of alcohol poisoning, but an autopsy report showed that she died from fatal trauma to her neck and spine.
In a statement released on Wednesday (April 12), the U.S. Attorney’s Office said that at the conclusion of an investigation conducted by the FBI, there was not enough evidence to support a federal prosecution.
Shanquella Robinson’s family is now taking legal action.
Family lawyer, Sue-Ann Robinson, told Newsweek that the family is planning to sue the six people who traveled to Cabo with Shanquella.
The lawsuit will be against the six travel mates including the three who lied by omission by failing to disclose that someone had been beating Shanquella prior to her death.
Sue-Ann Robinson confirmed that the law firm she works for “will be filing a civil lawsuit on behalf of the family.”
She said Shanquella’s family “are tired, weary, heartbroken and missing Shanquella but motivated by her legacy to keep moving forward on the path to her justice.”
I pray that the family of Shanquella Robinson gets justice and all of those responsible for her death are finally held accountable.
