Community gathers at Donna mural of Pfc. Vanessa Guillen to call on leaders to take action in her disappearance
Members of the Rio Grande Valley community gathered at a mural in Donna honoring a missing Army soldier.
It’s been more than two months since Pfc. Vanessa Guillen, 20, disappeared. She was last seen between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on April 22 in a parking lot at Fort Hood, according to the U.S. Army.
Guillen’s family met with Army leaders to discuss the investigation into the disappearance of the 20-year-old Fort Hood soldier. During the meeting, family members told Army officials that Guillen told them she’d been sexually harassed by her superiors, but had not reported it out of fear of retaliation.
According to the Army, there is no indication Morales’ death is connected to the disappearance of Guillen.
Valley community members are joining others calling on Gov. Greg Abbott and state officials to get involved in the investigation.
