CABO SAN LUCAS, MEXICO: Shanquella Robinson, 25, who was found dead under mysterious circumstances inside a villa in Mexico’s Cabo San Lucas in October 2022, paid for her birthday celebrations completely. This could have made her friends jealous, according to a recent report.

One of the videos that resurfaced recently had clips of friends beating up the 25-year-old woman. Meanwhile, a civil rights protestor, John C. Barnett, who held a rally last month, is seeking more information about the death and also claimed that the death happened due to "Jealousy."

What are the doubts of the activist and family? 

Barnett said, “What you’re looking at is like a Jesus and Judas situation, some jealous friend. She paid for the majority of the trip, from my understanding. She booked the villa and wanted her six friends to go and celebrate with her.” Her friends apparently lied to get out of their rooms after the celebration and even laughed at the news of Robinson's death. However, her friends initially claimed that she died due to alcohol poisoning. In the autopsy, it was revealed her injuries were more consistent with her beaten face. Meanwhile, the authorities who have spoken to the concierge on the morning of November 17. However, he also claimed that "She seemed not to fit in with the others." The concierge said: "She was indifferent, nothing to do with the atmosphere of celebration. She was out of place at the party, as per The Sun. 

What are the comments from the family? 

When the video got resurfaced, we can observe a friend stating, “At least fight back," to Robinson and making fun of her. The woman who repeatedly beat Shanquella was identified as her friend, Daejhanae Jackson. The six friends who accompanied her on the trip have also allegedly removed their social media profiles. However, in the letter her family had written to Joe Biden seeking a truthful investigation, it is claimed, "An autopsy report prepared on October 30th, 2022 in Mexico by Medical Examiner Dr. Rene Adalberto Galvaan Osegura noted that Shanquella’s body had a head injury 3 and concluded that Shanquella’s cause of death was a broken neck."

Salamandra, the mother of Robinson, said how her friends were misleading the family.  "Each one of the people that was there with her was telling different stories. They said she wasn’t feeling well. She had alcohol poisoning. They couldn’t get a pulse. They didn’t call us until the very last minute, and then on top of that, they said the maid found her. No one told the same story, so I never believed them anyway." Further, she said, "They said it was alcohol poisoning, we received the autopsy report on Thursday and it said that her neck had been broken and she had a back spasm there was a crack, spinal cord was cracked. That took it to a whole another level because that meant somebody had attacked her.”
