Mexican authorities have issued an arrest warrant for an anonymous suspect in the death of American woman Shanquella Robinson.
The warrant was issued Wednesday by Mexican law enforcement agencies and the FBI is conducting a parallel investigation. The suspect has not been identified.
“This case is completely clarified, we also have a court order, there is an arrest warrant issued for the crime of feminicide against the victim and against an alleged perpetrator, a friend of hers who is the direct aggressor,” he said Baja California Sur Attorney Daniel de la Rosa Anaya, according to ABC News.

And he added: “In reality it was not a matter of a dispute, but of a direct aggression. We are carrying out all the necessary procedures such as the Interpol alert and the request for extradition to the United States of America”.
Robinson, 25, was found dead in the city of San José del Cabo on Oct. 29 after traveling to the resort area with six friends the day before. Mexican authorities say his cause of death was a severe spinal cord injury. A murder investigation has been opened WBTV reported it.
Robinson’s family was initially told by Robinson’s friends that she had fallen ill with alcohol poisoning on a trip with friends to the Fundadores Beach Club.

WBTV reported that the death certificate painted a different picture and described the cause of death as a result of “severe spinal cord injury and dislocation of the atlas” along with instability of the first two vertebrae of the neck.
A video circulating on social media appears to show a woman attacking Robinson. WSOC-TV reported that Robinson’s mother identified the people in the video as friends of her daughter.
“That, can you at least react?” A man can be heard saying in the background while another woman can be seen beating up an undressed Robinson.

Mexican officials are now speculating that Robinson received medical attention from a professional before she was discovered by authorities and pronounced dead.
The doctor reportedly told friends of Robinson that the 25-year-old was suffering from dehydration and needed to be taken to hospital, according to Mexican authorities.
It is still unclear how alcohol and personal injury contributed to Robinson’s death, as alcohol was reportedly not mentioned on the death certificate.
The certificate adds that the approximate time between injury and death was 15 minutes, and a box asking whether the death was “accidental or violent” is marked “Yes.” WSOC-TV reported it.
