Remains of Fort Hood Soldier, Vanessa Guillen, Have Been Identified

The Army has identified the remains of missing Fort Hood soldier Vanessa Guillen, her family’s lawyer said in a statement Sunday evening.

Guillen, 20, was last seen in a parking lot on the Texas Army base on April 22, according to military officials. On June 30, investigators said they found unidentified human remains about 20 miles away from the Killeen, Texas, base.

“The Army has confirmed that the bones, hair and other remains found are Vanessa Guillen,” attorney Natalie Khawam said Sunday in the statement. “We are at a loss for words.”

The Army Criminal Investigation Division has yet to independently confirm the identification. ABC News has reached out to Army CID for comment.
