Rapid developments over the last 24 hours: The Vanessa Guillen Case

Vanessa Guillen was a 20-year old Army soldier at Fort Hood who went missing in April. Her allegations of sexual harassment had been ignored. After months of pleading for information from the investigators, the Guillen family went public. This resulted in protests and pleas for justice. You may have seen this case in the news, but with so many news stories erupting simultaneously, it's understandable that many people may have missed it.

Yesterday, after a false alarm last weekend, remains believed to be those of Vanessa Guillen discovered in a shallow grave:
