Murder Victim’s Mother Criticizes FBI

The mother of a college student who died under mysterious circumstances while vacationing in Mexico has criticized the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for its handling of the case.

On October 29, Shanquella Robinson was found unresponsive in the living room of the villa that she and five other friends had rented in the resort city of San Jose del Carbo on the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula.

The 25-year-old had traveled with her friends from college for a short vacation. After her death, Robinson’s family alleges that her travel companions reported that she had died from alcohol poisoning.

However, conflicting accounts about what exactly happened on the trip have quickly arisen.

One of the central questions about Robinson’s death concerns a video that purportedly shows the young woman being brutally attacked by another woman inside what appears to be their villa.

Furthermore, the official certificate of death issued by the Mexican government lists “severe spinal cord injury and atlas luxation” as the cause of death. Atlas luxation refers to instability in the uppermost vertebrae.

The death certificate also estimates that Robinson died about 15 minutes after sustaining these injuries.

While the FBI has launched its own investigation, it has been reported that Mexican authorities are seeking to extradite a woman from the United States to face charges related to Robinson’s death.

In a post on Instagram, Robinson’s mother Sallamondra Robinson wrote, “Enough is not being done by the FBI to put the individuals who attacked Shanquella behind bars. I’m just trying to wait for somebody to be arrested.”

She continued, “The FBI is not telling anything as of right now. Shanquella attackers looked me right in my face and told me there was no fight that happened in [Cabo]. I believe they are on the run!”

In another post two days later, Robinson’s mother wrote, “I believe this all was planned. The people Shanquella went on a trip with have all been friends for over 10 years.”

“Authorities have not informed me on any information due to Shanquella case but I was told the FBI is now questioning everyone from the [Cabo 6],” she concluded.

The U.S. State Department released a statement on the case that read, “The Department of State has no higher priority than the safety and security of U.S. citizens overseas. When a U.S. citizen dies in a foreign country, local authorities are responsible for determining the cause of death.”

“The Department of State supports a thorough investigation into the circumstances of this incident and is closely monitoring local authorities’ investigation.”

Robinson’s mother’s criticism of the FBI is the latest round of bad press for the law enforcement agency; it is currently mired in controversy after the recent release of internal Twitter documents allegedly revealed its close ties to the company’s decision to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story in the lead-up to the November 2020 presidential election.

Jenin Younes, litigation counsel at the New Civil Liberties Alliance, commented on these alarming revelations, “Regardless of their politics, all Americans should be gravely concerned about the FBI’s utter disregard for the First Amendment.”

Now, the FBI finds itself embroiled in an international murder mystery and the victim’s mother’s continued demands for answers, which have thus far gone unanswered by the nation’s top law enforcement agency.

As the mother of the victim, she is owed a full and honest explanation regarding the death of her daughter. I don’t trust the FBI anymore. Needs to be a full investigation of the FBI.

shouldn’t that explanation come from the department that investigated the event. The FBI only knows what was told to them by the Mexican government.

This was a. MURDER in a foreign juris, and the local authorities are seeking extradition.
The ONLY thing that the FBI should be involved in with this case is arrest and extradition of the accused to the Mexican system.
The proper response should be “pursuant to legal extradition papers filed by the Mexican Government we will be finding and returning the accused to the Mexican Authorities”.
Anything else just proves that the FBI should no longer exist.

But, but… …Todd Gilham over at The Dismal Morning News just wrote that the real problem with The FBI illegally spying on an opposition party presidential candidate, then framing him with totally manufactured Russian collusion, then illegally spying on those researching/verifying the Hunter Biden laptop RICO corruption evidence, then smothering that easily verifiable laptop story for over a year, then lying again about Russian laptop involvement – is – Trump suggesting that the constitution being possibly suspended due to no other remedy being available in the face of such massive foundational tyranny.

(of course Todd left out the FBI corruption details for the sentient among us to fill-in to the equation because Todd is a real team player)

What the hell are you talking about? Do you even know? The FBI doesn’t have to “spy” on the opposition party’s candidate for President. He commits the crimes for all to see. Then criticizes all who state the obvious, and convinces his low information followers to believe and spread his conspiracy lies!
