Shanquella Robinson’s mom is blasting the FBI for a lack of progress in the mu-rd-er case.

The 25-year-old hair stylist died on Oct. 29 of a broken neck and spinal cord injury that resulted in a cardiac arrest.

Six people who traveled to Cabo, Mexico with Robinson on Oct. 28 fled back to the United States the day after her death. They have not been seen since.

Robinson’s mom, Sallamondra, is not happy with the FBI’s lack of progress since Mexico issued an arrest warrant for the “aggressor” seen beating Robinson in a viral video.


Within days after Mexico issued an arrest warrant for the unnamed aggressor, false rumors spread that a suspect had been arrested and was awaiting extradition to Mexico.

A blog, MetropliMx in Cabo, reported falsely that one of the people on the trip with Robinson had been arrested in the U.S.

But according to mainstream news outlets in Charlotte, no one connected with the case is being held in federal custody awaiting extradition.

The slow progress of the case has upset Sallamondra, who only wants justice for her daughter.

She criticized the FBI for dragging their feet.

“I’m just trying to wait for somebody to be arrested. The FBI is not telling anything,” Sallamondra told the UK’s Independent on Thursday.

An FBI official told The Charlotte Observer that the existence of a foreign arrest warrant does not mean an arrest of an American citizen will happen overnight.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, the process for an arrest and extradition is typically a very long one.


“Officials have to decide whether the arrest warrant issued by Mexican authorities has merit, and whether to extradite a U.S. citizen for a crime committed against another U.S. citizen in a foreign country. If a U.S. arrest warrant is issued, the defendant in a case such as Robinson’s can fight extradition and ask to be tried in the U.S.”


Sallamondra said Robinson’s six acquaintances scattered to the wind after they returned to Charlotte from Cabo.

She said three of Robinson’s acquaintances came to her home to deliver her daughter’s belongings. She questioned them about rumors of a fight in Cabo.

“These people looked me in the face and told me there was no fight in Cabo,” Sallamondra told the paper, adding that they claimed Shanquella died of alcohol poisoning.

“What did you all do to my child?” Sallamondra said she asked the visitors, one of whom broke into a sweat and left. She doesn’t know where they are hiding.

“They’re on the run,” the grieving mother told The Washington Post.

Meanwhile, Robinson’s supporters plan a “Justice for Shanquella Robinson” rally in Charlotte on Saturday, Dec. 10 at Little Rock AME Zion Church. The rally starts at 4 p.m.
