Justice delayed does not always mean denied. However, in this case, it looks like the US prosecutors are denying Shanquella Robinson and her family justice. Federal prosecutors will not file criminal charges in the death of Shanquella Robinson, they announced in a statement Wednesday.
In their statement announcing no US charges, United States Attorney Dena King and the FBI said there was not enough evidence of wrongdoing to issue criminal charges in this case.
“Based on the results of the autopsy and after a careful deliberation and review of the investigative materials by both U.S. Attorneys’ Offices, federal prosecutors informed Ms. Robinson’s family today that the available evidence does not support a federal prosecution.”
Shanquella’s family met with King and investigators from the FBI late Wednesday morning. The family is expected to hold a press conference Wednesday afternoon. The meeting comes weeks after Robinson’s family sent a letter to the White House demanding action.
What happened to Shanquella Robinson?
Shanquella Robinson, 25, died on October 29, 2022, while on a trip with friends to Cabo, Mexico.
Shanquella’s parents were initially told by others on the trip that she had gotten sick with alcohol poisoning. After Robinson died, the family says they were told by Mexican authorities that alcohol poisoning was determined as the cause of her death.
Despite the alleged reports, her death certificate from Mexico suggests a different story, saying Robinson died due to a severe spinal cord injury.
“After they said it was alcohol poisoning, we received the autopsy report on Thursday and it said that her neck had been broken and she had a back spasm there was a crack, spinal cord was crack,” her parents said. “That took it to a whole ‘nother level because that meant somebody had attacked her.”
