Army Confirms One Vanessa Guillen Suspect Captured, Another Dead

The U.S. Army is confirming one suspect is under arrest and another is dead in the disappearance of a soldier in Central Texas.

The military says a soldier took his own life near Fort Hood after Killeen police and U.S. Marshals approached him. The estranged wife of a former Fort Hood soldier was also arrested.

No identities have been released.

The Army says the pair were involved in the disappearance of Army Private First Class Vanessa Guillen from the post in April.

Remains were discovered Tuesday near a river but have not been identified.

Guillen's family has said she was sexually harassed at Fort Hood and didn't feel safe. They're now calling for a congressional investigation.

Attorney Natalie Khawam told reporters in Washington, D.C. it was important to find out if there was a cover up into Guillen's disappearance while also demanding transparency.

She also called for a new federal agency to investigate sexual harassment claims in the military.
