We turn to the latest on ft. Hood soldier Vanessa Guillen. Calls growing for the military to be held accountable for her disappearance and death as one of the suspects in the case makes her first court appearance. Stephanie Ramos has more for us. Good morning to you, Stephanie. Reporter: Good morning, this was a young woman who joined the army just about a year ago. Vanessa Guillen's family says she should have been protected especially while at her post and want answers as to why this happened to her. This morning, the army confirms the remains found last week just outside ft. Hood in Texas are, indeed, Vanessa Guillen. The remains found near the Leon river are, in fact, those of Vanessa. Reporter: This just hours after a suspect, Cecily Aguilar, appeared in court charged with helping to dispose of Vanessa's body. An updainted complaint says Aguilar allegedly told the FBI she and her boyfriend army specialist Aaron Robinson went back to where they disposed of Vanessa's remains days later to break them down more. Aguilar eventually cooperating with investigators calling Robinson as they listened in. Robinson telling her, baby, they found pieces. Aguilar then leading investigators to Robinson. When they confronted him, Robinson killed himself. Guillen's family says Vanessa told them she was being sexually harassed by a soldier before her disappearance but didn't report it out of an alleged fear of retribution. It's not clear if Robinson is that soldier but the army says they're investigating. The Guillen family is pushing for legislation that would allow service member was are victims of sexual harassment or assault to report their incident to an outside agency insteftd way it's done now where incidents are supposed to be reported to the designated victim's advocate who is usually a colleague in the same military unit, robin.
