CHARLOTTE — Shanquella Robinson’s mother spoke on “Good Morning America” Monday morning calling for answers in her daughter’s death.
Robinson traveled to Mexico in October 2022 with a group of people she considered friends.
Those friends told Robinson’s family she died of alcohol poisoning, but an autopsy revealed she died of a broken neck and spinal cord.
A video later surfaced showing Robinson being attacked by a woman on that trip.

Her mother said it’s taking too long for action in this case.
“It’s just taking too long for the process, and I know there is a process, but someone should have been arrested by now,” Sallamondra Robinson said. “That’s just too long.”
Mexican authorities said they have a suspect in this case, who lives in the U.S., but they have not identified who it is.
Last week, Robinson’s family traveled to Washington, D.C. to call for diplomatic intervention.
They want the state department to take over the case entirely or for the U.S. government to extradite the suspect.
