Kim Kardashian Calls For Justice For Murdered Soldier, Vanessa Guillen
A tragic story is developing from a Texas Army base, an Kim Kardashian West is demanding justice. A 20-year-old Fort Hood soldier named Vanessa Guillen‘s remains were found this week after going missing in Killeen, Texas in April. Vanessa Guillen’s family shared that she was sexually assaulted by a fellow soldier, and was afraid to report the incident. Law enforcement suspects that her alleged murderer – Spc. Aaron David Robinson, 20 – was the perpetrator. Vanessa Guillen’s family’s lawyer, Natalie Khawam, said this in a recent press conference:
“She was afraid to [report it] because the sexual harassment was coming from her superiors, so her concern was the retaliation, being blackballed. We believe the person that killed her is that person that sexually harassed her.”
Investigations show that Guillen was lured to barracks, and violently attacked with a hammer to her skull until she succumbed to the injury. Spc. Aaron Robinson and his 22-year-old girlfriend, Cecily Anne Aguilar – the estranged wife of another fellow Fort Hood soldier – allegedly attempted to burn her body, then, instead, allegedly dismembered and buried Guillen in a nearby wooded area.
Reality star/beauty mogul Kim Kardashian West has now spoken out about the tragedy. Recently known for her extensive involvement in criminal justice reform, Kim Kardashian West tweeted a call-to-action for the slain young soldier:
“We must demand justice for the family of Vanessa Guillen #JusticeForVanessaGuillen”
Spc. Aaron Robinson fled Fort Hood this past Tuesday, (6/30/20) fatally shooting himself the following day after being pursued for police questioning. His girlfriend, Cecily Aguilar, was arrested that same day on charges of second-degree felony tampering/fabricating physical evidence with intent to impair a human corpse, and federal conspiracy to tamper with evidence.
Vanessa Guillen’s sister, Mayra, grew emotional during a press conference when she revealed she had met her sister’s alleged murderer:
“I met him not knowing that he had something to do with it. I felt something was telling me that he did something and I wasn’t wrong, apparently. He still had the nerve that day to laugh in my face. And apparently now, he kills himself. Why? I don’t know. But whoever is responsible has to pay and we demand a Congressional investigation.”
Kim’s entry into the legal world began in 2018 when she famously helped Alice Marie Johnson be pardoned for her non-violent crimes in 2018.
Prayers for Vanessa Guillen’s family and everyone impacted by this tragedy!
