Federal prosecutors will not prosecute a woman who beat Shanquella Robinson to death in a viral video in San Jose Del Cabo last year.
The announcement comes after attorneys for the 26-year-old entrepreneur called on the White House and the Biden administration to bring justice to Shanquella’s family.
Shanquella died after she was brutally beaten by one of her travel companions in a rented a villa while on vacation in Mexico.
In the video, Shanquella is naked as the woman kicked and punched her repeatedly while a male friend tells the helpless victim to “fight back.”

Speculation ran rampant that the aggressor in the video was a male-to-female transgender.
After Shanquella’s death, her travel companions returned to Charlotte, North Carolina and scattered to parts unknown.
Her friends initially said she died from acute alcohol poisoning, and the US consulate in Mexico closed the case.
Following the backlash on social media, Mexican authorities opened an investigation and eventually labeled Shanquella’s murder a “femicide.”
An autopsy conducted in Mexico listed her cause of death as “atlas and medullary dislocation” — a broken neck and spine.
Mexican authorities issued an arrest warrant for the aggressor and requested extradition from the US.
However, federal prosecutors said the evidence doesn’t support charges against the aggressor.
U.S. attorneys say the government must prove “beyond a reasonable doubt, that a federal crime was committed.”
Prosecutors presented their findings to the family.
“Based on the results of the autopsy and after a careful deliberation and review of the investigative materials by both U.S. Attorneys’ Offices, federal prosecutors informed Ms. Robinson’s family today that the available evidence does not support a federal prosecution,” they wrote.
Shanquella’s family announced they will plan a march in Washington, DC.
