Vanessa Guillen Death – Obituary – Fort Hood Soldier Found Dead in Barracks.
Natalie Khawam, attorney for the family of missing Fort Hood soldier Vanessa Guillen, said “we believe that her remains were found.”

The finding comes days after investigators said they suspected foul play related to her disappearance.
Mayra and Lupe Guillen, Vanessa’s sisters, said during the press conference that while they will continue to wait for the remains’ identification process to take place, they are demanding a congressional investigation of the Army’s handling of the case, according to a statement posted online on July. 1, 2020 by NBC News
The following are some tributes posted on social media to honor the life and the legacy of the deceased.
“They lied to our faces every single day.”
