Vanessa Guillén was a 20-year-old U.S. Army soldier who authorities believe was murdered on April 22, 2020, inside a Fort Hood, Texas, armory by another enlisted soldier, Aaron David Robinson, age 20. Guillén had been missing since April 22 when some of her dismembered remains were found buried along the Leon River on June 30.
Upon hearing about the discovery of the Guillén’s remains, Robinson fled Fort Hood, and fatally shot himself when law enforcement attempted to apprehend him in Killeen, Texas, shortly after midnight. A local woman, whom authorities said was Robinson's girlfriend, was taken into custody and is alleged to have assisted Robinson in disposing of Guillén's body.
