[UPDATE] Vanessa Guillen: Army releases statement after remains found in shallow grave at Leon River

Remains have been found in a shallow grave by the Leon River in Texas, in connection with the disappearance of missing Fort Hood soldier, Vanessa Guillen, a source has told CrimeOnline.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, 20-year-old Guillen disappeared on April 22. She was last seen at around 1 p.m. at the parking lot of the Regimental Engineer Squadron Headquarters, 3rd Cavalry Regiment, in Fort Hood, Texas.

Guillen left behind her car keys, barracks room key, identification card, and wallet in the Arms room, where she works. She was also called in on her day off, but it’s unclear who called her in or why.

Guillen’s mother, Gloria Guillen, previously told CrimeOnline that a sergeant at the base had been sexually harassing her daughter.

“[Guillen] said it was stalking and verbal harassment. He would look at her some type of way that would make any woman feel uncomfortable,” Gloria Guillen, who speaks Spanish, said through her daughter, Mayra Guillen, who translated on her behalf.

No suspects have been named at this time.

In a separate incident last week, authorities found a different set of remains off of the 3400 block of Florence Road in Killeen, near an area where searchers previously found slain Fort Hood soldier, Gregory Wedel-Morales. It’s unclear whether those particular remains are of human or an animal.
