What is going on at Texas army base Fort Hood? Legal commentator and Oxygen contributor Nancy Grace demands an answer.
The ever-outspoken Grace emphatically asked the question during CrimeCon: “House Arrest,”, a virtual event dedicated to all things true crime that streamed on November 21.
Fort Hood Army post in Texas — “one of the largest military installations in the world,” said Grace — is where 20-year-old Private First Class Vanessa Guillén, who dreamed of serving her country, had her life end in a tragic nightmare. Aaron Robinson, another soldier, allegedly murdered her on April 22, 2020.
In an incisive episode of “Injustice with Nancy Grace,” airing Thursday at 9/8c on Oxygen, Grace takes a deep dive into the ongoing investigation of Vanessa Guillén’s murder — and how effectively the legal system has served the victim and her family.
“Is there no end to the chain of injustice for Vanessa Guilllén?” Grace asked during “House Arrest.”
The details of Guillén’s murder are shocking. After Robinson allegedly bludgeoned her to death, she was dismembered, burned, and buried. Her remains were found along the Leon River on June 30.
Robinson died by suicide as authorities were trying to arrest him. Meanwhile, his girlfriend, Cecily Aguilar, has been charged for her alleged connection to the murder. Aguilar has pleaded not guilty.
Guillén’s family has told reporters they want “real answers, real justice.”
During the CrimeCon panel, Grace, who has talked with the victim’s family, alluded to the case as an urgent call to action.
“We, I, you, must demand change,” she said.
