A lawyer representing the family of slain Fort Hood soldier Vanessa Guillen has revealed disturbing new details about how the young Houston native is believed to have died after she vanished in late April.
Speaking on an episode of the “Crime Stories” podcast hosted by Nancy Grace that aired Thursday, Natalie Khawam said she and the Guillen family had just learned from Army investigators that the 20-year-old was brutally beaten after being called in to work at the Fort Hood armory on April 22. Army investigators discovered “partial human remains” earlier this week they believe belong to Guillen, though they have yet to be positively identified.
After reporting for work that day, Guillen is said to have encountered Aaron Robinson, a fellow soldier publicly identified by the Army’s Criminal Investigation Division on Thursday as the suspect in Guillen’s disappearance. Robinson “displayed a weapon and took his own life” when authorities closed in on him Wednesday morning, the CID said.
According to Khawam, Robinson savagely attacked Guillen at the armory after she remarked on his relationship with the estranged wife of a former Fort Hood soldier. When Guillen reminded him that the relationship was in violation of military rules, he allegedly picked up a hammer and began “bludgeoning her head over and over.”
The suspect then allegedly took Guillen’s body to a river and enlisted the help of his girlfriend to dispose of the remains. “They go to the river, they first try to light her body on fire, they try to burn her body, they can’t burn her body, they’re having a hard time burning her body, so they decide to take the machete out and start dismembering her whole body,” Khawam said. After scattering her remains in a shallow grave, she said, they used quick-dry cement to try and cover it.
