Shanquella Robinson, 25, of Charlotte, traveled on Oct. 28 with six friends to the resort city of San José del Cabo, where they stayed at the swanky Fundadores Beach Club.
The following day, Robinson was found dead at Villa Linda. Her parents soon received a frantic phone call from Robinson’s friends, who told them she had died.
“They said she wasn’t feeling well, that it was alcohol poisoning,” Robinson’s mom, Sallamondra Robinson.
But the death certificate has revealed that the cause of death was a “severe spinal cord injury and atlas luxation,” an instability of the first two neck vertebrae.
The mystery has been compounded by a horrific video that emerged allegedly showing Shanquella being beaten inside a hotel room.
In the distressing video, someone can be heard asking if she “could at least fight back.”
It was unclear when and where the unverified video was taken, but Sallamondra told that she recognized the people in the footage as the friends who went to Mexico with her daughter.
The mother also said she believed the video was shot during the fateful trip.
