Mexico wants Americans extradited over tourist deaths – Boston News, Weather, Sports

CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico (AP) — Mexican prosecutors said Thursday they have filed charges against a US woman on suspicion of killing another American who was punched in a viral video.

Prosecutors in the state of Baja California Sur did not name the suspect in connection with the Oct. 29 death of Shanquella Robinson.

But they said they had contacted Mexican federal prosecutors and diplomats to try to get the woman extradited to face charges in Mexico.

Robinson’s death at a vacation spot in the Baja resort town of San Jose del Cabo shocked people in both countries. The video raised suspicions that Robinson may have died at the hands of people she traveled with.

Local prosecutor Antonio López Rodríguez said the case was being treated as a potential murder and an arrest warrant was issued for the suspect. However, the group Robinson was traveling with left Mexico after being found dead in a rented villa.

Prosecutor Daniel de la Rosa Anaya said the suspect was also American but had not identified her.

Local media in Charlotte, North Carolina, reported that the people Robinson was traveling with gave different versions of her death, but that an autopsy revealed she died of a serious spinal cord or neck injury.

A video, apparently taken at the luxury mansion in San Jose del Cabo, shows a woman, apparently American, beating another woman, identified as Robinson.

The video was posted multiple times on social media sites. In it, a man with an American accent can be heard saying, “Can you at least fight back?” The man did not appear to join in the beating.

The video raised questions as to why no one intervened in the alleged beatings or why people she was traveling with hit her.
