Shanquella Robinson and her justice are now solely in the hands of the Mexican government. On Wednesday, the United States chose not pursue charges. This latest update is a devastating blow to the family. The young woman’s death was ruled a femicide by Mexican investigators. Sadly, no one has been held accountable. 

After a months-long probe, the Department of Justice and the FBI have decided there is not enough evidence. The thriving hair and clothing entrepreneur was found dead in a luxury Cabo San Lucas villa. Her travel mates said she died of alcohol poisoning. However, an autopsy concluded her death was caused by a severe neck and spine injury. 

Shanquella Robinson Was A Successful Businesswoman

Cell phone video shows Robinson being violently beaten by Daejhanae Jackson. In the disturbing clip that surfaced after her death, Robinson was nude and doesn’t fight back. In March, Robinson’s family and civil rights attorney Ben Crump went to Washington, D.C. While there, they pleaded with the government to intervene. Subsequently, an investigation was launched but the DOJ has now ruled they cannot do anything. “It is important to reassure the public that experienced federal agents and seasoned prosecutors extensively reviewed the available evidence and have concluded that federal charges cannot be pursued," the agency said in a statement. 

Moreover, aside from their initial lie, the group Robinson traveled with remains tightlipped. When Robinson became gravely ill, they did seek out a doctor. When the medical professional advised them to take Robinson to a hospital, they refused. She died shortly after. Afterward, the group was seen laughing. Additionally, they allegedly attended dinner knowing the young hair braider and boutique owner was deceased. The family says they have stopped speaking to them and refuse to reveal any key details. Family attorney Sue-Ann Robinson has been careful to avoid calling the group “friends” of the victim. She says only one of them was a friend.
