Baja California Sur Attorney General Daniel de la Rosa Anaya Gave The Update During A Recent Press Conference
de la Rosa Anaya made a rare public comment during a press conference on Friday. He revealed that his office is working to order interviews with all of the subjects involved in the case. And they are also working to locate the unnamed suspect.
According to WCNC, de la Rosa Anaya has also worked with Interpol to put out a red notice. The red notice “is an advisory to law enforcement across the globe to be on the lookout for a suspect,” according to the outlet.
Mexican authorities will reportedly be alerted if the suspect enters or exits the country.
There is no impunity in this case. Right now, it is important to obtain, above all, the judicial order of the presumed person responsible for these unfortunate events.
According to Fox News, de la Rosa Anaya added that it is just as important to determine if they were any accomplices involved in Robinson’s death.
It is important to obtain the court order with regard to whoever is responsible for this, but also if there were any accomplices.
It is important to note that de la Rosa’s quotes have been translated from Spanish, as reported by WCNC.

The Investigation Into Shanquella Robinson’s Death Thus Far
Robinson’s death has been ruled as femicide. In November, Mexican authorities revealed that an arrest warrant had been issued for the unnamed suspect, a US citizen. The suspect was traveling with Robinson when she died.
de la Rosa Naya referred to the suspect as the “direct aggressor” responsible for Robinson’s death.
This case is fully clarified, we even have a court order, there is an arrest warrant issued for the crime of femicide to the detriment of the victim and against an alleged perpetrator, a friend of hers who is the direct aggressor… We are carrying out all the pertinent procedures such as the Interpol alert and the request for extradition to the United States of America.
According to WSOC-TV, a former federal prosecutor told the outlet that a U.S. Attorney’s Office “can’t just unilaterally bring a murder charge when a U.S. citizen kills another U.S. citizen in a foreign country.” Additionally, the murder charge “must be approved by the main Department of Justice in consultation with the Secretary of State.”

The Investigation Reportedly “Is Not Going To Be A Quick Process” And Updates Will Remain Scarce
According to Fox News, legal experts have explained that securing extradition and charges against a US citizen will not be a quick process for Mexican authorities.
Yolanda Trotman, a North Carolina criminal defense attorney and former judge, explained her insight to WSOC-TV.
People need to understand that this is not going to be a quick process. The extradition process takes some time. There’s going to have to be a level of patience, I think, with people that want justice quickly and justice may not look like we’re used to.
As The Shade Room previously reported, Robinson was vacationing in San José del Cabo in late October with a group of six friends. The friends returned from vacation without Robinson and reportedly informed her family that she died from alcohol poisoning. Shortly after, a video began circulating on social media of a woman attacking Robinson in a hotel room. Robinson’s mother identified the woman in the video, and the people recording, as her friends.
