‘Murdered’ Fort Hood soldier Vanessa Guillen’s family to get compensation as she was ‘killed in line of duty’, Army says

"MURDERED" Fort Hood soldier Vanessa Guillen's family is to get compensation, as the Army said her death was "in the line of duty."

The Army said it briefed the Guillen family of the investigation into Vanessa's death on Tuesday – six months after the soldier first went missing, and three months after her body was found off the Texas military base.

"This investigation concluded that Vanessa’s death was ‘in the line of duty,’" the Army said in a press release on Tuesday.

The Army added: "This determination establishes that the Guillén family is entitled to a variety of Army benefits for Vanessa’s service to our nation.

"Typically these benefits include compensation to immediately help the family with expenses, funeral with full military honors, the Servicemembers’ Group Life Insurance, and final pay and allowances."

Guillen, 20, was last seen alive on April 22,

Her body was found months later, on June 30 – in a shallow grave near Fort Hood.

Investigators found her body dismembered, and encased in cement.

As authorities worked to interrogate suspect Aaron Robinson on the night Guillen's body was discovered, he killed himself.

The US Attorney's Office for the Western District of Texas alleged Robinson had his girlfriend, Cecily Aguilar, 22, help him hide Guillen's body.

Guillen's family have demanded Congress investigate claims that the soldier was sexually harassed before her death.

"How could this happen on a military base? How can this happen while she was on duty?" Vanessa Guillen's sister, Lupe asked angrily at a press conference in July.

The Guillen family met with President Trump in late July, as he vowed to "get to the bottom" of her death.

As authorities searched for Guillen's body and later worked to piece together the incidents surrounding her death, more than two dozen soldiers on the base have died this year.

Congress is now investigating deaths, disappearances, and alleged sexual assaults at the base after 28 soldiers turned up dead.

The Army said on Tuesday they are in contact with the Guillen family "to keep them informed of the additional actions being taken at Fort Hood, and what policies are being revised to ensure Army culture continues to put people first and honors Vanessa’s life."
