The FBI is investigating the death of a North Carolina woman who was allegedly assaulted on video

The FBI has launched an investigation died last month A cell phone video of a US woman being attacked in Mexico has gone viral.

The FBI confirmed to CBS News on Tuesday that it has “opened an investigation” into the death of Charlotte, North Carolina resident Shangella Robinson.

According to the FBI, the death occurred on October 29 in Cabo San Lucas. Mexican authorities said last week that the death occurred in San Jose del Cabo, about 20 miles northeast of Cabo San Lucas. Both are located in the state of Baja California Sur.

In a statement on November 17, Mexican prosecutors said they were only investigating the death of a woman they said was a foreigner at a resort in San Jose del Cabo. However, a Mexican government official, who was not authorized to be named at the time, confirmed that the victim was Robinson. The group he was traveling with has since left Mexico, the official confirmed.

A video taken at a luxury villa in San Jose del Cabo shows an American woman beating another woman.

The video has been reposted many times on social networks. There, a man with an American accent asked, “Can you at least fight?” It does not appear that the man interfered with the beating.

Police found Robinson dead in the villa on October 29, Mexican prosecutors said.

Shangella’s mother, Salamondra Robinson, told CBS News last week that investigators in Mexico are investigating her daughter’s death as a homicide.

“I’m glad to hear that,” he said.

Salamondra said Shangella’s friends initially told her she was suffering from alcohol poisoning. But he later learned there had been a fight, and an autopsy revealed he had spinal cord and neck injuries.

Salamondra said the autopsy showed that “her death had nothing to do with alcohol.”

Mexican officials said they could not confirm the cause of death because it was part of an ongoing investigation.

Salamondra said he knew it was her daughter when he saw the video. This raised questions about why no one intervened in the alleged beating or why the people he was traveling with would beat him up.

“He wasn’t fighting anybody. He didn’t have a chance,” Salamondra said. “Nobody tried to stop it.”

Salamondra said the group Shangella traveled with were people she went to college with.

“One of the boys was supposedly his best friend,” she said. “And he went on family trips with us, you know? And he was at the family home.”

Salamondra said she hasn’t seen him since receiving the autopsy results. She said she hopes to get more answers about her daughter, who she says has a “heart of gold.”

“He loved everybody. He didn’t treat anybody bad. Never. Nobody could say anything bad about him because he was a good person,” Salamondra said.
