Human remains identified as missing Fort Hood soldier Vanessa Guillen

Human remains found in a shallow Texas grave last week have been identified as missing Fort Hood soldier Vanessa Guillen, a lawyer for her family said Sunday.

The family was informed of the identification by Army officials on Sunday, while in the company of their priest, attorney Natalie Khawam told The Associated Press.

Guillen, 20, was last seen April 22 in a parking lot at Fort Hood, where she was based.

She was killed and dismembered by fellow soldier Aaron David Robinson, 20, who took his own life last week, federal and military investigators have said.

A local civilian, Cecily Aguilar, 22, has been arrested and charged with helping Robinson to mutilate and dispose of the body.

The remains were found on Tuesday, about 20 miles east of Fort Hood, during the search for Guillen.

Investigators weren’t able to use dental records to identify Guillen because of the state of the remains, and instead used DNA from bone and hair samples, the attorney said.

The family has said they believe Robinson had been sexually harassing Guillen. They are calling for a congressional investigation into the matter.
