Officials said the government could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt a federal crime was committed based on the autopsy results, careful deliberation and review of known material.

The US Sun has reached out to the Robinson family’s attorney for comment.

The news came shortly after the Robinson family met with federal officials at the FBI office in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The family is expected to address the media at 1.30pm today.

Robinson’s family met with White House officials in early April to discuss the investigation, nearly six months after the 25-year-old died of a broken neck at a luxury mansion in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, on Oct. 29, 2022.


Robinson, the owner of a hair braiding shop and online fashion boutique, traveled to Mexico with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday on October 28, but died the next day.

The friends initially told Robinson’s family that she died of alcohol poisoning.

However, harrowing video emerged that appeared to show one of the so-called friends beating Robinson while others yelled at her to fight back.

Mexican officials ruled that Robinson’s death was a homicide after an autopsy later revealed the true extent of her injuries, which were more consistent with her punched face.

The 25-year-old suffered a broken neck and a serious spinal cord injury.
