The FBI is investigating the case of a North Carolina woman who was found dead in October in a rented luxury villa in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

The local FBI office in Charlotte has confirmed it is investigating the case of Shanquella Robinson, 25, who was found unconscious in a home on October 29.

“You took my only piece of jewelry,” her father, Bernard Robinson, told CNN. “You made a big hole in my heart. The only thing I can do is fight for her. I can’t let her die in vain.

Robinson was vacationing in Cabo with his college friends from Winston-Salem State University.

Her family last heard of her the day before she died.

A death certificate for the 25-year-old, who ran a hair braiding business in Charlotte, North Carolina, lists her cause of death as ‘severe spinal cord injury and atlas dislocation’ , which is instability or excessive movement in the upper neck. vertebrae.

Authorities are now treating the death as a homicide.

A video circulating online, which Robinson’s family says depicts their daughter, shows the woman in a physical altercation with another woman, although it is unclear when or where the video takes place.

No charges were announced, and authorities did not release the names of the friends who were traveling with Robinson.

The Baja California Sur state attorney general’s office told CNN the investigation is ongoing.

Robinson’s mother, Salamondra, said in an interview that she received a “frenzied” call from Shanquella’s friends at the start of the trip.

“They said she wasn’t feeling well. She had alcohol poisoning,” the mother said. “They couldn’t get a pulse. Each of the people who were there with her told different stories.

“When the autopsy came back, they said it had nothing to do with the alcohol,” she continued. “[They] said she had a broken neck and her spine in her back was cracked. She had been beaten… I know it won’t bring my child back, but I want something done… She had a heart of gold. She loved everyone, and almost everyone loved her.
