Mexican authorities are proceeding with a case against an American suspected of murdering a friend at a luxury resort. They are trying to extradite the woman for prosecution.

There could be legal ambiguity as Mexican prosecutors are about to extradite an acquaintance of Shankera Robinson, a woman found dead while vacationing in Mexico.

Authorities have not yet released her name, but after a video posted online (too violent to show) revealed Robinson was assaulted in a hotel room, she He said he was a “direct attacker” against the 25-year-old Robinson.

“What’s unusual about this is that the Mexican government is seeking extradition of a U.S. citizen,” said ABC legal analyst Dan Abrams.

Mexican authorities have issued an arrest warrant for the acquaintance, who is now back in the United States, on charges of “femicide,” the act of killing a woman based on her gender.

“On the one hand, the U.S. government intends to take this seriously, but on the other hand, it has no obligation to extradite her,” Abrams said.

On October 29, local police reported that guests at the Baja Resort Town told medical staff that Robinson “drank a lot of alcohol.”

Robinson’s acquaintances refused to send her to the hospital. Police reports said the man from Charlotte went into cardiac arrest and was pronounced dead by 6pm.

However, the autopsy was contrary to that report, and medical personnel arrived just before 3:00 p.m. and immediately declared Robinson to have died of a “severe spinal cord injury” and a dislocated neck.

Now the Robinson family wants answers.

“I’m just waiting for the day someone gets arrested, and that’s all I’m waiting for,” said Salamondra, Robinson’s mother.
