An arrest warrant has been issued and extradition proceedings have begun in Mexico for the suspect in the murder of 25-year-old Shanquella Robinson. 

Robinson, a resident of North Carolina, is thought to have been beaten to death during a vacation with a group of six others in Cabo on October 28. 

It appears that the suspect in the crime was a friend of Robinson's. The suspect is not named in the warrant. 

In an interview with ABC News on Wednesday, Baja California Sur prosecutor Daniel de la Rosa Anaya, said: 'We are carrying out all the pertinent procedures such as the Interpol alert and the request for extradition to the United States of America.'

Anaya added: 'It’s about two Americans, the victim and the culprit.' 

In the immediate aftermath of Robinson's death, her family was told by her friends that she had died as a result of alcohol poisoning, a story that swiftly fell apart under scrutiny.

The prosecutor in the case also said: 'This case is fully clarified, we even have a court order, there is an arrest warrant issued for the crime of femicide to the detriment of the victim and against an alleged perpetrator, a friend of her who is the direct aggressor.'

At one point, Robinson began seizing as Dr. Gutiérrez tending to her. The convulsions lasted less than a minute. Later, after Dr. Gutierrez had lost Robinson's pulse, CPR, AED, and several rounds of adrenaline were pushed in an effort to save the 25-year-old's life  © Provided by Daily Mail At one point, Robinson began seizing as Dr. Gutiérrez tending to her.

After news of the warrant was announced, her mother, Salamondra Robinson, told ABC News: 'I feel so good, that's a good feeling. That's what we have been waiting for, for someone to finally be held accountable and arrested. I just can't wait for justice to be served.
