On October 28, 2022, Shanquella Robinson, a 25-year-old young woman, tragically died in Mexico, while on vacation with a group of “friends.” There have been several news updates and conflicting reports of what exactly led to Shanquella’s death. However, recently, a Mexican Prosecutor, Daniel de la Rosa Anaya, told ABC News that one person who was on vacation with Shanquella ‘is the direct aggressor’ and is being sought by international authorities on charges of femicide.”
Friends and family describe Shanquella as a kind and loving entrepreneur from Charlotte, North Carolina. Shanquella’s death and the investigation surrounding her death will be the topic of today’s The Defiant Lawyers show.
Our deepest condolences and prayers go to the family and friends of Shanquella Robinson. Our family is originally from North Carolina, with many deep ties to the state. We join Shanquella’s family in their fight for justice for this young woman who had a bright future ahead of her.
