NEW video shows American tourist Shanquella Robinson with her friends hours before her body was found in a Mexican villa.
The video shared on Instagram showed Shanquella, 25, telling her friends to change into their bathing suits as she walked through the Cabo mansion.
Shanquella was heard laughing and joking as she said, “It doesn’t take that long to undress.”
Eventually, she found the group gathered in another room as they discussed which swimsuits they would wear.
Comments below the video had users speculating about Shanquella’s friends.
“As she walked through the door, they looked at her and stopped talking,” claimed one person, who followed with a heartbroken emoji.
“She was ready to have a good time and her energy is totally opposite, thats more than upsetting smh,” wrote another.
The new video comes after horrifying footage showed Shanquella appearing to have been beaten by one of her friends shortly before she died.
The video appeared to show a naked Shanquella being attacked by one of her friends at the Cabo mansion, while a male acquaintance filmed the attack.
When or where the video in question was recorded could not be verified at this time.
However, according to her family, the video that has recently been circulating on the internet and social media allegedly shows Shanquella being beaten in a hotel room.
So far, there has been no confirmation from authorities that Shanquella sustained any fatal injuries during the alleged fight.
In a statement to WBTV, the bureau said it was aware of the video circulating online and urged “anyone with relevant photos or videos to contact the FBI.”
In the clip, a male voice can be heard off-camera taunting Shanquella, saying, “Can you at least fight back?”
She tries to get away from her attacker and replies “no” before the woman slams her on the floor by the bed.
The woman then punches and kneels the ailing Shanquella in the head, yelling at her to “get up, I’m sick of this shit”.
“It was never a fight. She didn’t fight,” said Shanquella’s mother Sallamondra. “They attacked her.”
She said her daughter is a hardworking business owner and looks forward to vacationing in Cabo.
“I’ve been looking at some of her posts that she’s made,” she said. “She really had a lovely time and I don’t know where it went wrong from there.”
None of the group who stayed with Shanquella have been charged with a crime.
BED TO THE LAST REST
An emotional funeral service was held for the young woman on Saturday as her friends and family still clamor for answers about her mysterious death.
The service was held at the Macedonia Baptist Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, where Shanquella grew up.
“We came to make sure there were enough people putting pressure on the entire system to do what is necessary to bring justice to this woman,” said activist Tamika Mallory.
Mallory has worked on several high-profile cases, including supporting Breonna Taylor’s family.
“Losing a loved one in the despicable way that happened to Shanquella will likely never find peace for her. But there cannot be only one open situation. It has to be done with the truth and it has to be such that those responsible for her death are held accountable,” she said.
Shanquella’s parents were originally told their daughter was diagnosed with alcohol poisoning hours after her Oct. 28 trip to Cabo.
A day later they discovered that she was dead.
An autopsy revealed that she had died of a broken spine.
Mexican authorities are investigating her death on Thursday as a homicide.
The FBI would announce that it “opened an investigation into the death of Charlotte resident Shanquella Robinson in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on or about October 29, 2022.”
Shanquella’s family created a GoFundMe page to prepare for the “huge financial burden” and potential legal fees.
In four days, the fundraiser reached its goal of $350,000.
