Questions surround the death of a 25-year-old North Carolina woman in Mexico as video footage and an autopsy report appear to conflict with her friends' account of what happened.

Last month, Shanquella Robinson, 25, traveled to Cabo, Mexico from Charlotte with a group and rented out a villa in celebration of one of her friends' birthday, per Queen City News.

Her mother, Salamondra Robinson, told the outlet that she last talked to her daughter after she had just settled down in Cabo and was having a meal with her friends.

“She told me they had a chef. They were getting ready to eat. They were eating tacos or a salad or something, and I said, ‘OK. I love you. Have a good night, and I will talk to you tomorrow.’ I never talked to my child again. She never made it back home,” Salamondra said.

The next call the mother received was from one of her daughter's friends who told her that Shanquella was sick and that they were waiting for a doctor to arrive.

"They said she wasn't feeling well. She had alcohol poisoning," Salamondra said. "They couldn't get a pulse. Each one of the people that was there with her was telling different stories."

She later was notified by one of the friends that Shanquella had died from food poisoning.

"No one told the same story, so I never believed them anyway," Salomondra said.

Now, a video has surfaced of one person in the group brutally attacking Shanquella in the Mexico villa minutes before her death.

In the video, a woman appears to slam Shanquella to the floor while punching and kneeing her in the head.

According to the Daily Mail, the 25-year-old woman was pronounced dead about 15 minutes after she was beaten.

An autopsy report also revealed that Shanquella's neck was broken at the time of her death.

Shanquella's body was flown back to Charlotte last week, with a funeral service taking place over the weekend.

"All I've been doing is just crying trying to figure out what happened," Bernard Robinson, her father, said. "I can't even be a grandfather, can't even walk her down the aisle, she's gone."
