Cecily Aguilar, who confessed that she helped her boyfriend get rid of the body, also “conspired, conspired and agreed with another person, illegally and knowingly, to alter, destroy, mutilate and corruptly hide” the evidence of the crime, according to the prosecution.



A federal grand jury in Waco, Texas, brought 11 charges against Cecily Aguilar, 23, who is accused of helping her boyfriend, Aaron Robinson, dispose of the remains of Private Vanessa Guillén, following his brutal murder in the Fort Hood military base last year.

According to the indictment, Aguilar "conspired, conspired and agreed with another person, illegally and knowingly, to alter, destroy, mutilate and corruptly hide" the evidence of the crime.

His crimes include

conspiring to tamper with documents in a federal investigation, falsification of records, false testimony, and failure to report a murder

Guillén disappeared from Fort Hood on April 22, 2020. Her family began looking for her that same day, after she did not respond to her sister's text messages

.

But from the first moment they tried to contact the military authorities they had great difficulties

.

The victim's relatives managed to attract the attention of many people on social networks and the case gained notoriety in the media, putting pressure on the Army.

On June 30, search teams found human remains near the Leon River, 30 kilometers from the base, that belonged to the 20-year-old Latina soldier.

Robinson,

who allegedly killed Guillen with a hammer inside the base

, committed suicide when he was to be questioned in connection with the murder.

According to the sworn statement of an FBI agent, Aguilar confessed that Robinson had passed through her after leaving work, they drove to the river and together they cut up the body, tried to burn the parts and that night they buried the remains that remained near the river.

Last month, a judge denied Aguilar's request to annul his confession.

The mother of the young soldier, Gloria Guillén, again demanded justice for the murder of her daughter at a press conference this Tuesday afternoon to talk about the progress in the investigation of the case.

“From this research that Mr. Norris came to give us, it is nothing new.

I see the same, they are below their rank, but they are not punished.

They are changing bases, but they continue to pay them, there is no justice, ”said Gloria Guillén.

The woman denounced that the 13 military commanders from Fort Hood who were suspended or demoted for not having taken adequate measures to respond to

the sexual assaults that Guillén had denounced on at least two occasions

, have not been expelled from the Army and are still receiving their salary. .

The punishment for these soldiers, which the Guillén family considers insufficient, was the result of an independent investigation commissioned by the Army earlier this year, to which Noticias Telemundo had access.

The report concludes that there were "systemic failures" in the chain of command, including ignoring the harassment suffered by the military and allowing the crime suspect to escape from the place where he was being watched, obtain a weapon and commit suicide.

It also revealed that the Fort Hood base recorded more than 

400 violent crimes in the past three years

, including 11 homicides, 48 ​​rapes, 243 sexual assaults and at least 39 suicides.

It is the most violent military installation among the large bases.

And there are 43% more reported sex crimes than the Army average.

However, investigators found no evidence that Robinson had harassed Guillén or that the harassment he reported was related to his death, something the family strongly rejects.

“Fort Hood is the worst curse that has ever happened to the United States, because they killed my daughter there.

The commandos overlapped it.

There is a dark and murky truth in Fort Hood.

Either that base is cleaned or it is closed, "said Gloria Guillén at Tuesday's press conference.
