Vanessa Guillén, a 20-year-old U.S. army soldier, went missing from the U.S. Fort HoodArmy base in Texas where she was stationed. She was last seen in the parking lot of her barracks on April 22, 2020. Before Guillen went missing, she informed her family that she was being sexually harassed by one of her sergeants at Fort Hood. She did not identify the man by name. Before her disappearance, Vanessa's mother, Gloria, advised her to report him. Vanessa informed her mother that other women had reported the sergeant and that they were dismissed. In response, Vanessa stated that "she could put a stop to it herself" out of fear that her mother would be harmed if her mother were to report the sergeant. A few weeks later, Vanessa disappeared. On July 1, 2020, at a news conference, Vanessa's family reported that a body found near Fort Hood was likely that of Vanessa Guillen. The main suspect in the case, a fellow soldier, killed himself the same day.
