Aaron Robinson Suicide
Aaron Robinson, a soldier in Fort Hood, had fled the post on Tuesday, KXXV reported, and officials were trying to locate him. When they tried to make contact with him in Killeen when they found him walking on East Rancier Avenue, he showed his weapon and shot himself, dying on the scene.
Officials have not identified Robinson as of the time of publication, but the Guillen family attorney Natalie Kawham identified him in a press conference.
In a statement, the Killeen Police Department said:
On Tuesday, June 30th, late in the evening hours, Special Agents with the Army Fort Hood Criminal Investigation Division contacted the Killeen Police Department and the U.S. Marshals – Lone Star Fugitive Task Force in reference to a person of interest in the missing soldier case from Fort Hood, Vanessa Guillen. We were informed that the person of interest had left the post and was inside the City of Killeen. During the course of the investigation, information was provided on the location of the suspect. The suspect was located walking in the 4700 blocks of East Rancier Avenue and as officers attempted to make contact with the suspect, the suspect produced a weapon and committed suicide by shooting himself. The suspect was pronounced deceased at 1:17 a.m. by Justice of the Peace Garland Potvin at the scene.
The person of interest was an active duty soldier and his name has been withheld pending notification next of kin through the Army Casualty Assistance Office.
Any further inquiries to the investigation regarding Vanessa Guillen will be directed to the Army Fort Hood CID.
Kawham said in a press conference: “We told command who we believed it was and why. From there the search went quicker…. Last night they issue a BOLO and that person ran off base and shot himself when they came up to him. This is the same person we have been talking about the superior who she was with that day and harassed her.”
Vanessa Guillen Case
Vanessa Guillen, a soldier stationed at Fort Hood, Texas, has been missing since the afternoon of Wednesday, April 22, 2020. Her car keys, car, and wallet were still at the base, but she may have had her phone with her. If you have any information, please call the Army CID Special Agents at 254-495-7767 or the Military Police at 254-287-4001.
Kawham said the family believes Robinson is the man who walked in on Guillen while she was showering, KXXV reported.
Army’s Criminal Investigation Command was investigating claims that she was sexually harassed, ABC 7 reported. Col. Ralph Overland, commander of the 3rd Calvary Regiment, said he had opened an investigation. “I take allegations of sexual harassment very seriously and we are conducting a thorough investigation.”
Khawam told ABC 7 that Guillen was the victim of two instances of sexual harassment, but she feared retaliation and didn’t report them. In one case, her superior walked in while she was showering. In another, someone made vulgar remarks toward her in Spanish. CNN reported previously that one of the people harassing her was one of her sergeants.
Guillen’s mother, Gloria, told CrimeOnline that the sergeant who walked in on her showering had also followed her while she jogged.
In a press conference, Kawham said the suspect is the same one who had sexually harassed Guillen, KVUE reported. Kawham said that they need new legislation to change how harassment is reported. She said Guillen would have had to report her harassment internally, which prevents soldiers from feeling safe with coming forward.
