There are no charges against Shanquella Robinson’s death

On Wednesday, US officials announced they would not pursue criminal charges following the 2022 death of Shanquella Robinsonbecause “existing evidence does not support federal prosecution.”

Based on Charlotte ObserverThe US Attorney’s Office in North Carolina said that the FBI and federal prosecutors have concluded their investigation into Shanquella’s death.

US officials will not pursue criminal charges against anyone involved in Shanquella Robinson’s death

It is unclear how this will affect the extradition request that Mexican authorities made last year.

It was previously reported that Mexican officials had issued an arrest warrant for the murder of a woman against Daejhanae Jackson, one of the people Shanquella was with at the time of her death.

However, US officials have clarified that Daejhanae is not a criminal suspect. However, the Justice Department or the State Department did not detail their positions on extradition.

Citing “a detailed and thorough investigation” and an autopsy performed by the medical examiner’s office in North Carolina’s Mecklenburg County, officials said they found that “existing evidence does not support aid in federal prosecution.” US Attorneys Sandra J. Hairston and Dena J. King said in a statement:

“Based on the results of the autopsy and after careful consideration and consideration of investigative documents by both U.S. Attorney’s Offices, federal prosecutors notified the family of Mrs. that the available evidence does not support federal prosecution.”

“As in all cases being considered for federal prosecution, the government must demonstrate, beyond a reasonable doubt, that a federal crime was committed,” it continued. “Based on the results of the autopsy and after careful consideration and consideration of investigative documents from both United States Attorneys’ Offices, federal prosecutors informed the family of Mrs. that the available evidence does not support federal prosecution.”

Suspects may still face extradition to Mexico for charges

It is not yet clear how this will affect or if this will affect Jackson’s extradition request after Mexican authorities issued a warrant for her arrest last year.

Robinson, 25, died in October under suspicious circumstances a day after she arrived in Cabo, Mexico. She is on vacation with six people. The FBI opened an investigation into her death in November.

Her story went viral and led to widespread pressure on Mexican and US authorities to issue warrants for the arrest of Jackson, one of six tourists, for murder of a woman (similar to murder), according to her family’s attorneys Benjamin Crump and Sue-Ann Robinson.

Video that emerged shortly after Robinson’s death showed a woman assaulting her at the villa the group was staying at in Cabo.

According to Crump and Sue-Ann Robinson’s letter to the White House, the woman who attacked Robinson was later identified as Jackson.

In March, attorneys for the family wrote a letter to the White House citing information from Mexican prosecutors.

On Wednesday, US officials clarified that Jackson was not a criminal suspect following the FBI’s investigation but did not specify the Justice or State Department’s position on Jackson’s extradition.

The Justice Department met with Robinson’s family and attorneys Wednesday morning, telling them it had completed its investigation and would not prosecute any of the six suspects.

“Based on the results of the autopsy and after both the U.S. Attorney’s Offices carefully considered and considered the investigative documents, federal prosecutors informed the family of Ms. The available evidence does not support federal prosecution,” said US Attorney Sandra. J. Hairston and Dena J. King in a joint statement.

However, the Justice Department has said that it will be open to reviewing new information should it emerge.

“Miss Robinson’s death is a very difficult thing for her family and the community. By policy, federal officials generally do not make public statements about the status of an investigation. However, given the circumstances of Ms. Robinson’s death and the public concern surrounding this investigation, it is important to reassure the public that experienced federal agents and seasoned prosecutors The veterans have carefully reviewed the available evidence and have concluded that federal charges cannot be pursued,” Hairston and King wrote.

Meeting scheduled for supporters and media in Charlotte on Wednesday afternoon

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs previously said Charlotte Observer it “supports a thorough investigation into the circumstances of this incident and is closely monitoring the local government investigation.”

Meanwhile, the Robinson family and lawyers recently held a press conference in Washington, DC to call on President Biden to intervene in the Shanquella case.

A meeting with supporters and the media in Charlotte was scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
