Army investigates female soldier's death

The Army is investigating the death of another female soldier who complained of sexual harassment at Fort Hood, Texas, the same base where Army Specialist Vanessa Guillen was murdered three years prior.

Pvt. Ana Basaldua Ruiz, 20, a combat engineer who had served with the 1st Calvary Division for the past 15 months, was found dead on Monday, according to a statement from Fort Hood.

Basaldua Ruiz’s death comes weeks after she apparently complained to her mother about her superior and other peers sexually harassing her, her family told Noticias Telemundo, a Spanish-language news outlet owned by NBC.

The Fort Hood release made no mention of any sexual harassment allegations, but it said the Army Criminal Investigation Division is “actively investigating the facts and circumstances surrounding her death.” In addition, Basaldua Ruiz’s chain of command “is in contact with her family to keep them updated, receive any concerns, and provide them all releasable information,” according to the Army.
