However, after the FBI was alerted about the mysterious death of their daughter, the authorities learned that there was a different potential cause of death altogether. In an interview, Salamondra revealed that her daughter sustained a “broken neck and her spine in the back was cracked.” 

An official statement on how Shanquella sustained the injuries has not been released. However, it is alleged that she was assaulted by her friends, which could have contributed to her death.

According to Shanquella’s sister, the victim’s family got phone calls from people in Mexico who claimed that a physical fight happened and Shanquella was beaten up.

The U.S. Department of State issued a statement that read, “We are aware of these reports. Protecting the welfare of U.S. citizens overseas is among our top priorities. Out of respect for the privacy of those involved, we have no further comment at this time.”
