Netizens rally for Robinson's friends to be imprisoned
Internet users found the claims of what caused Robinson's death to be vague. Netizens are convinced that the group of friends was behind the death of Shanquella Robinson. The video of Jackson allegedly beating up Robinson before her death has strengthened this claim.
Netizens demanded that Robinson's friends should be put behind bars. A few tweets read:
Shanquella Robinson's parents were told that their daughter died of alcohol poisoning
Following Robinson's death, her parents, Salamondra and Bernard, were told by Robinson's friend Khalil, that she died of alcohol poisoning. However, after the victim's family alerted the FBI over their daughter's mysterious death, investigators found that Robinson did not die from the same.
In an interview, Salamondra revealed that the FBI found out that her daughter sustained a "broken neck and her spine in the back was cracked."
Shanquella's sister, Quilla Long, also expressed doubt about the group of friends. Long said in an interview:
“Now that stuff done happen, I can go back and say "that’s why he was pacing," I mean, you would have thought he was coming off something like he was high. He was nervous, he was sweating, and grabbing his beard… It had to be eating him up then.”
Shanquella Robinson's death remains under investigation.
