North Carolina woman, 25, found dead during friends’ trip in Mexico, is seen being beaten by one of the group in their villa: Autopsy found she had a broken neck – despite friends claiming she died of alcohol poisoning
Shocking footage has emerged of a 25-year-old North Carolina woman being brutally beaten by a friend in a Mexico villa before she was found dead – and friends claimed she died of alcohol poisoning. The video shows the terrifying moment Shanquella Robinson (pictured) was attacked while she was undressed in a bedroom. Shanquella was part of a group that traveled from Charlotte to Cabo on October 28 and rented out a villa to celebrate a friend’s birthday.
Her mother, Salamondra Robinson (pictured), told Fox affiliate WJZY that she last spoke to her daughter moments after she had settled down for a meal with her friends. They agreed to talk the next day, but the phone call that she received instead was from one of Shanquella’s friends, who told her that her daughter was sick and they were waiting for a doctor to arrive.
‘They said she wasn’t feeling well. She had alcohol poisoning,’ Salamondra said. ‘They couldn’t get a pulse. Each one of the people that was there with her was telling different stories.’ She later received a tragic call from one of Shanquella’s friends claiming the young woman had died from food poisoning. ‘No one told the same story, so I never believed them anyway,’ Salomondra said.
A man, who appears to be filming the sickening assault, taunts Shanquella ‘can you at least fight back?’ Shanquella attempts to get away from her attacker and replies ‘no,’ before the woman slams her to the floor next to the bed. The woman then punches and knees her in the head. The woman then yells at Shanquella to ‘get up, I’m tired of the [expletive].’
A representative for Villa Linda 32, the property where the group was staying, told WJZY that the concierge contacted a doctor who attempted to revive Shanquella (pictured). She was declared dead at 3pm local time, reportedly about 15 minutes after she was beaten.
A copy of the autopsy report obtained by Salamondra indicated that Shanquella’s neck was broken. WJZY reported that the area in the death certificate that would show if Shanquella (pictured) had been intoxicated only indicated that she ‘was found unconscious in her living room.’ The certificate also has an area where authorities note whether the death was accidental or violent. They inscribed ‘yes’ into the section, but did not choose accidental or violent.
Shanquella’s body was flown back to Charlotte last Thursday and a funeral service was held over the weekend. ‘All I’ve been doing is just crying trying to figure out what happened,’ her father Bernard Robinson said of his late daughter. ‘I can’t even be a grandfather, can’t even walk her down the aisle, she’s gone.’
