La misteriosa morte della venticinquenne Shanquella Robinson ha fatto impazzire i social media. Secondo NBC News, Robinson si è recata a Cabo San Lucas con un gruppo di amici, ma è morta solo un giorno dopo il viaggio, il 29 ottobre. Gli amici di Robinson sono poi tornati negli Stati Uniti senza il suo corpo e hanno detto ai suoi genitori che aveva è morta per avvelenamento da alcol, anche se i suoi genitori non erano del tutto convinti del loro account. Presto, un video inquietante di Robinson attaccato (presumibilmente da Daejhanae Jackson mentre varie persone stavano a guardare) si è diffuso su Twitter e Facebook, irritando i seguaci della storia.

Now that Robinson's suspicious death has caught the attention of those on social media (including Kyrie Irving, who donated $65,000 to her family's Go Fund Me, per Black Enterprise), her case is finally receiving its attention from the appropriate governments as well.

The FBI and Mexican authorities are officially investigating Shanquella Robinson's death

According to Robinson's death certificate, she actually died from a spinal cord injury and atlas subluxation complex, per WSOC TV.  Robinson's death investigation is now in the hands of both the FBI and the Mexican government, per ABC News. Additionally, Mexico's investigation is treating Robinson's death as a femicide, or "the gender-based murder of a woman or girl by a man," according to ABC.

Followers of the case have taken to Twitter to express their elation at steps toward justice for Robinson. "That Mexican authorities have now deemed Shanquella 'Quella' Robinson's death as a gender-based hate crime (homicide) and the FBI is also investigating makes me proud of everyone who stands up for those who can't. This is why we need Twitter," tweeted one user. "Also. Thanks to social media, the case of Shanquella Robinson has been escalated to FBI investigation," tweeted another.

Shanquella Robinson's funeral took place on November 19. According to Yahoo, hundreds of supporters flocked to North Carolina to pay their final respects to Robinson.
