Prosecutor Issues Femicide Warrant in Shanquella Robinson’s Death

On Wednesday, a local prosecutor announced that an arrest warrant had been issued for an unnamed suspect in the death of 25-year-old American tourist Shanquella Robinson.

“This case is fully clarified, we even have a court order, there is an arrest warrant issued for the crime of femicide to the detriment of the victim and against an alleged perpetrator, a friend of her who is the direct aggressor. Actually it wasn’t a quarrel, but instead a direct aggression. We are carrying out all the pertinent procedures such as the Interpol alert and the request for extradition to the United States of America. It’s about two Americans, the victim and the culprit…,” Daniel de la Rosa Anaya, a local prosecutor for the state of Baja California Sur, said.

Shanquella Robinson’s mother, Salamondra Robinson, talked to ABC News on Wednesday. When told that there is an arrest warrant for the crime her daughter committed and hearing the news for the first time, she said, “I feel so good, it’s a good feeling. That’s what we have been waiting for, for someone to finally be held accountable and arrested. I just can’t wait for justice to be served.”

As the FBI looks into Robinson’s death, Mexican authorities said Tuesday night that Robinson may have been alive and cared for by a doctor for several hours before she was pronounced dead. ABC News learned this from the Mexican government.

The doctor at the scene is said to have told Robinson’s friends that she was drunk and thirsty and that they should take her to the hospital. Authorities say that they did not do this, though.

The original autopsy report that ABC News got said that medical professionals arrived at Robinson’s villa at 3 p.m. and pronounced her dead within 15 minutes. The new report is very different from the old one. The autopsy showed that Robinson died from a severe injury to his spinal cord and a neck that was out of place.

ABC News asked the authorities to explain the difference between their report and the autopsy, but they haven’t replied yet. The new police report says that Robinson’s friends asked for a medical checkup at 2:13 p.m. When a general practitioner from the American Medical Center got to Robinson’s home in Puerto Los Cabos, her friends told the doctor that she had been drinking a lot.

The police report says that medical staff noticed that Robinson had trouble speaking, was drunk, and had lost a lot of fluids, but that his vital signs were stable. The report said that the doctor at the scene told Robinson’s friends to take her to the hospital, but Robinson’s friends insisted that she stay at the villa.

Robinson started having seizures at 4:20 p.m., so one of his friends, Wenter Essence Donovan, called 911. The police report said that by the time emergency medical services got to Robinson, he was having trouble breathing and his pulse was low.

At 4:49 p.m., Robinson’s doctor said they could no longer feel his pulse, so they began CPR until paramedics arrived. They kept trying CPR for 14 times and gave the person five doses of adrenaline, but neither worked. The police report says that Robinson went into an asystole state, which is a type of cardiac arrest. Robinson was said to be dead at 5:57 p.m., according to the report.

The new police report says that Donovan told Mexican authorities about Robinson’s condition at 5 p.m. local time. ABC News has asked Donovan and all of Robinson’s friends who were with her in Cabo to comment several times, but they have not replied.

This month, the FBI started looking into Robinson’s death. Mexican police are also looking into it as a possible femicide, which is a form of violence against women. Robinson, from Charlotte, North Carolina, went with six friends to San Jose del Cabo, a resort city at the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula, on October 28.

Robinson’s family says that they stayed in a rental villa in Fundadores, a gated community with vacation homes and a private beach club. The next day, Robinson’s parents said that their daughter’s friends called them in a panic to tell them that she had died.

Even with all the new and changing information, Robinson’s family is still trying to find out what happened that weekend in Cabo from her friends who were there. Shanquella Robinson’s mother, Sallamondra Robinson, is glad the FBI is helping to solve her daughter’s case so it “won’t be for nothing.”

“I would like to see each one of them sent back to Mexico because their plan was to come back here thinking that they wasn’t going to be prosecuted,” Robinson told. “She was a caring person … and I want them to always remember that. We’re going to keep her legacy alive.”
