According to WBTV-TV, Shanquella Robinson traveled to Mexico with her friends Oct. 28. The next night, she reportedly didn't feel well. Robinson's friends reportedly called her parents and said they called a doctor and believed she had alcohol poisoning.
An autopsy report, however, said otherwise. The Charlotte Observer reports the report lists her cause of death as "severe spinal cord injury and atlas luxation."
Daniel de la Rosa Anaya, a prosecutor for Baja California Sur, told ABC News the suspect is one of Robinson's friends, and described her as the "direct aggressor."
He said in a statement, "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."
A doctor from the American Medical Center reportedly arrived after 3 p.m. on Oct. 29, and told Robinson's friends she should be transported to a hospital. The friends allegedly said they wanted her to stay at their rental villa.
At 4:20 p.m., one of her friends called 911 for am ambulance, and the doctor began CPR at 4:49 p.m. because Robinson was having trouble breathing. Paramedics and police later arrived and continued with CPR as well as five adrenaline doses and six AED shocks.
Robinson was declared dead at 5:57 p.m., according to the Charlotte Observer.
A video went viral that allegedly shows Robinson getting beat up inside the villa where they were all staying, WSOC-TV reports. Although her friends reportedly said they believed she suffered from alcohol poisoning, Robinson's death certificate does not list anything about alcohol.
Robinson's mother, Sallamondra Robinson, reportedly said the people in the video are Shanquella's friends who traveled with her to Mexico.
Sallamondra Robinson told WSOC, "It was never a fight. She didn’t fight. They attacked her."
