MEXICO CITY –
Mexican prosecutors mentioned Thursday they’ve opened an investigation into the death of a U.S. woman seen being beaten in a video that has gone viral.
Prosecutors in the state of Baja California Sur mentioned in a press release they’re investigating the death of a woman they recognized solely as a foreigner, at a resort growth in the city of San Jose del Cabo.
A state official who was not approved to be quoted by identify confirmed the sufferer was Shanquella Robinson. The official confirmed that the group she had been touring with had since left Mexico.
A video apparently taped at a luxurious villa in San Jose del Cabo exhibits one woman, apparently an American, beating one other woman.
The video has been reposted many occasions on social media websites. In it, a person with an American accent might be heard saying “Can you at least fight back?” The man didn’t seem to intervene in the beating.
Prosecutors mentioned police discovered Robinson useless on the villa on Oct. 29.
The Charlotte, North Carolina station Queen City News printed a report saying Robinson died of a extreme spinal chord harm.
Mexican officers mentioned they might not affirm that was the trigger of death, as a result of it was half of an ongoing investigation.
The video raised questions on why no person intervened in the purported beating, or why folks she was touring with would have beaten her.
