The mother of Shanquella Robinson, a 25-year-old businesswoman, is still seeking answers less than two weeks after the FBI said it was launching an investigation into her daughter’s mysterious death in Mexico.
On October 28th, Shanquella traveled from Charlotte, NC, to a luxury villa in Cabo, Mexico, with six friends to celebrate one of their birthdays. Sadly, Shanquella was found dead the next day inside the swanky Fundadores Beach Club in San José del Cabo.
A video of a woman assaulting Shanquella while she was naked surfaced online, leaving more questions than answers.

“I couldn’t confront them really, because they were gone,” Ms Robinson told The Independent on Thursday. “I did talk to police. I didn’t talk to the other ones [again] because I didn’t see them anymore. They came [to our home] before the autopsy came.“
Mexican authorities said in a statement that they are now investigating Shanquella’s death as a feminicide, a term used by local police to describe the homicide of a woman on account of her gender.
Last week, Mexican prosecutors issued an arrest warrant for a suspect in the 25-year-old’s death, which was determined to be the result of a “direct attack.” However, the suspect’s identity has not been revealed, and it is unclear whether any arrests have been made.
Rumors have been circulating on social media that an arrest has been made.
Travel Noire reported an arrest was made in Shanquella’s death:
Law enforcement appears to be one step closer to seeking justice in the untimely death of 25-year-old Shanquella Robinson. Travel Noire previously reported on the public outcry to hold one of Robinson’s friends accountable for the crime through extradition and prosecution in Mexico.
Those pleas may have been answered as reports circulate that Daejhanae Jackson has been arrested in connection with the crime.
There are also rumors that her “friends” set her up and killed over a PPP loan, which has not been confirmed.
CNN confirms Mexican prosecutors are seeking to extradite one of Shanquella’s friends as a suspect in the case, however, no one has been charged as of yet. Authorities have not released the names of the friends who were with Shanquella the day she died.
Local news station WSOC-TV has been trying to track down four of the friends who were on the trip with Shanquella. Channel 9’s Joe Bruno traveled across North Carolina to try and get some answers.
One of the unidentified friends who was in Mexico with Shanquella had a date in traffic court at the Gaston County Courthouse recently. It’s reported, the male friend pleaded guilty to a minor speeding charge, paying $15 in addition to fees. The reporter wanted to talk to the “friend” after the hearing, but he was not present. An attorney appeared on his behalf.
We drove about 264 miles today trying to reach any of the people on the trip with NC ties. We were unsuccessful. But outside one of the doors, I found this taped business card for a Forsyth County investigator. The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office declined to comment pic.twitter.com/E4c4oZpY3I
