KILLEEN, Texas – Guillen family lawyer Natalie Khawam confirmed on Sunday evening that the remains found on the Leon River in Bell County were clearly identified as specialist Vanessa Guillen.
The Fort Hood soldier was missing on April 22.
During a press conference last week, Fort Hood officials said specialist Aaron Robinson had killed himself when officials moved in to arrest him on July 1.
22-year-old Cecily Ann Aguilar was identified by the U.S. Attorney General as a suspect of Guillen's disappearance. Aguilar is charged with conspiracy to manipulate evidence.
On Sunday, Congresswoman Sylvia Garcia (TX-29) made the following statement in response to Spc. Vanessa Guillen was found dead and demanded justice for the Guillen family.
“I am heartbroken for Vanessa Guillen and I pray for the Guillen family with everyone across the country. Vanessa was a 20 year old Latina soldier with a bright future ahead of her. Unfortunately, this bright future was interrupted while serving our country. I will continue to work with the family until they do Vanessa justice, and we guarantee that this will not happen to any other soldier. "
