American woman accused of killing another American who was seen being beaten in a viral video has been charged by Mexican prosecutors. The suspect in Shanquella Robinson’s death on October 29 was not identified by prosecutors in the state of Baja California Sur.
However, they asserted on Thursday that they had contacted Mexican federal prosecutors and diplomats in an effort to extradite the woman to face charges in Mexico.
People in both countries were shocked by Robinson’s death at a San Jose del Cabo resort development. The video raised the possibility that Robinson died at the hands of those she was travelling with.
The case is being investigated as a potential homicide, according to the local prosecutor Antonio López Rodrguez, and an arrest warrant has been issued for the suspect. Robinson was discovered dead in a rented villa, but the group she was travelling with left Mexico soon after.
Although he did not name her, state prosecutor Daniel de la Rosa Anaya claimed the suspect was also American.”
