CHARLOTTE — Family and friends remembered the life of Shanquella Robinson this weekend.
Monday would have been her 26th birthday.
A balloon release was held Sunday at the Beatties Ford Memorial Gardens.
Mario Black, founder of Million Youth March in Salisbury and Charlotte, told Channel 9 he attended the balloon release to support the family in such an uneasy time.
“Showing the family that we care we love on them to help ease some of that pain. we can’t take the pain away and erase the situation,” said Black, “showing them that we care and that there are people that care and stand with them. that gives them so much hope and support, especially in a time of uncertainty.”
Robinson died while on vacation with friends in Mexico in late October.
Investigators there say an arrest warrant has been issued in the case.
However, no suspect was named and no arrests have been made.
