It’s been a month since an American woman died after being beaten while vacationing with friends at a resort in Mexico.
Shanquella Robinson, 25, of North Carolina, was found dead in the city of San José del Cabo on October 29 after traveling to the tourist area with six friends the day before.
In the weeks that followed, Mexican prosecutors filed charges against another American woman suspected of killing Robinson.

A video apparently recorded in the luxurious villa in San José del Cabo shows the woman beating Robinson. The video has been reposted many times on social media sites. In it, a man with an American accent can be heard saying, “Can you at least defend yourself?” He did not appear to intervene in the beating.
The video raised suspicions that Robinson may have been killed by the people he was traveling with. The group she was traveling with Robinson left Mexico after she was found dead in a rented villa.

On Thursday, Baja California Sur state prosecutors said they had approached Mexican federal prosecutors and diplomats to try to get the woman extradited to face charges in Mexico. State Attorney Daniel de la Rosa Anaya said the suspect was also an American, but did not identify her.
Local prosecutor Antonio López Rodríguez said the case was being treated as a possible homicide and an arrest warrant had been issued for the suspect.
Media outlets in Charlotte, North Carolina, reported that the people Robinson was traveling with gave different versions of how he died, but that an autopsy revealed that he died of a serious spinal cord or neck injury.

Speaking about the case on Fox News Sunday, former FBI agent and FBI profiler Mary Ellen O’Toole said the suspects who were involved in the altercation will also likely face charges.
“Here, they’ve probably already been interviewed by the FBI, and if they’ve lied to the FBI, that’s a felony. So, they could be charged with that,” O’Toole said. “It’s a very serious situation and they can feel like they’re so into it that they don’t know what to do. But the fact is that they really have to start telling the truth about what happened because there’s danger to them.”
