'She was not the fighting type': Shanquella Robinson's dad Bernard believes attack was a 'set up'
Shanquella Robinson's father Bernard is looking for answers after her mysterious death in Mexico
CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA: Shanquella Robinson's mysterious death in Mexico seems to have been staged, her father believes, TMZ reported. Bernard Robinson told the outlet his daughter was attacked as part of a "malicious scheme."
When Shanquella, a native of North Carolina, was found dead in her hotel room in Los Cabos last month, she was on vacation with a group of friends. One of those friends allegedly told her parents that the 25-year-old died of alcohol poisoning.
However, a terrible new video shows a woman beating up Shanquella while she was naked in a room; her parents claim that Mexican police have now informed them that Shanquella died from blunt force trauma to her neck and spine.
Her father was visibly upset as he told TMZ that his daughter was not a fighter and would never engage in physical combat, which led him to believe that this was a premeditated attack.
The footage, at the very least, proves Bernard's thesis about his daughter's temperament - Shanquella did not resist the attack. "Can you at least fight back?" a man could be heard urging Robinson in the distressing video.
Bernard claims that everything seems staged to him because her pals at home would never have permitted this to occur. His theory is that her assailants dumped her body in the hotel room for the housekeeper to find.
Anyone watching the video may find it difficult, but Bernard said it hurt him especially as others were lazily watching as his only child was attacked. He hopes that those responsible are apprehended and given a life sentence.
Bernard claimed that since his daughter inexplicably passed away while traveling to Cabo with her companions, he has been living a "nightmare." On October 28, Shanquealla left Charlotte, North Carolina, and arrived in Mexico, where the party was vacationing to commemorate a birthday.
Robinson's parents want to know what happened to their daughter, but her friends' allegation that she died from alcohol poisoning hasn't convinced them. Alcohol was not mentioned in the autopsy report, and the FBI and Mexican officials are currently looking into her death as a possible homicide.
"It's like a nightmare. I can't even sleep. I am just frustrated. My heart is just aching as a father. A praying man. I just want some truth because this doesn't add up right," Bernard told news outlet WSOC-TV.
