Mexican prosecutors have gotten an arrest warrant for the friend of a North Carolina woman who was found dead last month while on vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

The extradition process was underway for the suspect in the death of Shanquella Robinson, the attorney general for Mexico’s Baja California Sur, Daniel de la Rosa, told local media Wednesday.

Robinson, 25, was traveling with college friends from Winston-Salem State University when she was found dead in a vacation rental property, said her father, Bernard Robinson.

Mexican officials have not named the suspect but confirmed she is a US citizen who is believed to be in the United States. More information was expected Thursday.

  'The Walking Dead' Isn't Dead! Everything to Know About Maggie and Negan's Spinoff 'Dead City' Maggie and Negan are headed to the Big Apple, but that doesn't mean they'll actually get along.The Walking Dead is spinoff city, and they're taking at least one spinoff into the city that never sleeps: Dead City. Dead City will follow two TWD fan-favorites, Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan and Lauren Cohan as Maggie, all the way to New York City.

No one has been charged in the case, and authorities have not released the names of Robinson’s friends. CNN is reaching out to the US State Department for comment.

“There is already an arrest warrant issued for the crime of femicide to the detriment of the victim and against an alleged, responsible for these acts, a friend of hers,” the prosecutor said.

The death did not result from a “quarrel” but from “a direct aggression that this person made,” De la Rosa said.

“We are already carrying out all the relevant procedures, both the Interpol file and the extradition request,” he said.

Robinson last spoke to her mother, Salamondra, on the phone on the morning of October 28, her father told CNN last week. The next day, Shanquella Robinson was found dead at her vacation rental, US and Mexican authorities said.

Hendon Hooker's career for Tennessee football over after torn ACL in left knee

  Hendon Hooker's career for Tennessee football over after torn ACL in left knee Hendon Hooker was injured in the fourth quarter of Tennessee football's 63-38 loss at South Carolina on Saturday.The senior suffered a torn ACL in his left knee, and he will miss the remainder of the season, Tennessee announced Sunday. Hooker's Vols career is over, but not before he cemented himself among the program greats.

The cause of death was “severe spinal cord injury and atlas luxation,” which is instability or excessive movement in the uppermost neck vertebrae, states a copy of her death certificate obtained by CNN affiliate WBTV. She was found unconscious in the living room of the rental residence on October 29, the document states.

The death certificate classified Robinson’s death as “accidental or violent,” noting the approximate time between injury and death was 15 minutes.

Video posted online appears to show a physical altercation inside a room between Robinson and another person. It’s not clear when the video was taken or if it depicts the moment she suffered the fatal injury.

It is Robinson seen in the video being thrown to the floor and beaten on the head, Bernard Robinson confirmed to CNN.

It’s unclear what led to the altercation or how many people were in the room at the time. It’s also unclear if anyone tried to intervene.

The FBI Charlotte Field Office has opened an investigation into Shanquella Robinson’s death, it confirmed Friday.

Her family had been waiting for more information from her friends and Mexican authorities, her father said a week ago.

“You took my only jewel from me,” he told CNN by phone. “You put a big hole in my heart. The only thing I can do is fight for her; I cannot let her die in vain.”
