A GoFundMe created by Robinson’s sister has surpassed $300,000 and includes donations from Kyrie Irving, who is known for similar donations including buying a home for the family of George Floyd.

The FBI launched an investigation into the Charlotte woman’s death this month and Queen City News was able to attain a copy of the Cabo police report, which stated that nothing has been ruled out at this time as far as a cause of death.

A disturbing video of a fight that took place between her and an acquaintance surfaced online showing Robinson being slammed to the floor in what appeared to be one of the hotel rooms.

Robinson’s mother told Queen City News she probably won’t rest until there’s an arrest.
