FBI Investigation Launched Into Shanquella Robinson's Mysterious Death

The federal law enforcement agency has reportedly intervened on behalf of the deceased woman’s parents, Salamondra and Bernard Robinson.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) has gotten involved in the suspicious death of 25-year-old Shanquella Robinson.

The federal law enforcement agency has reportedly intervened on behalf of the deceased woman’s parents, Salamondra and Bernard Robinson. They reported her death after Mexican authorities suggested there was no foul play.

Shanquella’s autopsy report determined that the woman died from a broken neck and suffered severe spinal cord injuries, according to BET.com.

The hardworking hairstylist had set out to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in October to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The group of seven left from Charlotte, North Carolina and one day into the trip– Shanquella was dead.

Her supposed best friend, Khalil Cook, allegedly called her mother and revealed that her beloved daughter had passed away from alcohol poisoning. However, after the autopsy report was disclosed– Shanquella’s family became suspicious.

“They said she wasn't feeling well. She had alcohol poisoning,” Salamondra explained. “They couldn't get a pulse. Each one of the people that was there with her was telling different stories. No one told the same story, so I never believed them anyway.”

A now-viral video has circulated of a supposed friend, Daejhanae Jackson, viciously beating Shanquella as a male voice egged the violence on.

Still, there have been no arrests.
