WASHINGTON, D.C. –– Nationally renowned civil rights and personal injury attorney Ben Crump and attorney Sue-Ann Robinson of Frontline Law have sent a letter to President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken. The letter calls for swift diplomatic intervention by the White House and the U.S. Department of State to prioritize bringing those accountable for Shanquella Robinson’s death to justice.
Robinson was killed in October while vacationing in Mexico in October of 2022. According to Mexican prosecutors, one of Robinson’s friends was the direct aggressor of her death. Initially, friends of Robinson claimed that her cause of death was alcohol poisoning, but an autopsy revealed that it was “severe spinal cord injury and atlas luxation.”
“In our letter to President Biden and Secretary Blinken, we clearly stated that one of two things needs to happen: either the U.S. extradites Shanquella’s killer to Mexico or the U.S. takes jurisdiction of the case and her killer is prosecuted here,” said Crump. “Inaction is not acceptable in this case. Shanquella’s family deserves swift justice for her death.”
Attorney Sue-Ann Robinson recently returned from a fact-finding mission in Mexico on behalf of Shanquella’s family and met with Mexican authorities to discuss the case.
Ben Crump and Sue-Ann Robinson highlight the importance of justice and the rule of law, especially in cases involving the murder of U.S. citizens abroad. The letter also includes enclosures of witness statements, her autopsy, and field reports completed by Mexican authorities.
