Eighty-eight members of Congress have joined to support an investigation into Fort Hood's handling of Spc. Vanessa Guillen's case.

Congresswoman Jackie Speier and U.S. Senator Kirstin Gillibrand requested for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Acting Inspector General to conduct and independent investigation.

The request details a 3% increase in the number of sexual assault cases in the military compared to 2018. Before her disappearance, Spc. Guillen told her family and friends that she was being harassed by a supervisor.
