THE GIRLFRIEND of Vanessa Guillen’s killer “helped dismember and bury the body, then dig it up, cover with cement and re-bury it,” she told cops.
Cecily Anne Aguilar, 22, was charged with one count of conspiracy to tamper with evidence, the US Attorney’s Office of the Western District of Texas announced on Thursday.
According to court documents, published by Crime Online, Guillen – who was called into work on her day off on April 22 – went to an adjacent armory room where fellow soldier Aaron Robinson was working.
No one saw the female soldier leave the room and she did not answer any texts or calls.
She also left her ID card, keys and wallet in the room according to a witness, and never returned to pick up the items.
Robinson told authorities that the 20-year-old read serial numbers for weapons and equipment when she got to the room and said that she left to go to a motor pool where had to hand in paperwork about a .50 caliber machine gun.
However, employees in the motor pool said that they never saw Guillen.
According to the criminal complaint, Guillen’s last text message was to Robinson.
Robinson told police that he left the room at around 11am to see his girlfriend, Cecily Aguilar, and said he stayed at her house until 6.30pm and then returned to base to sign paperwork.
Two witnesses reportedly said that they saw Robinson that evening as he left the arms room with a large black trunk which he put in his car before driving away.
When investigators searched Robinson’s phone it showed multiple calls and text messages to Aguilar, who said she was with her boyfriend all night, on April 22.
Aguilar explained the calls to investigators by saying that she lost her phone and Robinson was helping her find it – but the length of the calls indicated otherwise.
Aguilar admitted she lied and said she took a long drive on the day of the incident, and said that Robinson met up with her in Belton, Texas, to “look at the stars.”
Phone analysis then indicated that both Robinson and Aguilar were near the Leon River in Belton on April 22, 23 and 26.
Robinson’s superiors then advised him to not leave the base as the investigation continued.
However, Robinson fled and then shot and killed himself when confronted by police, the complaint states.
The suicide came after authorities allegedly found concrete-sealed human remains near the Fort Hood base – where Robinson was reportedly a soldier.
On Thursday, the first picture of Guillen’s grave, where her remains were found “chopped up in cement,” was been released.
The shocking image, which was obtained by KHOU 11 News, reportedly showed the location where the evidence was found that led Texas Equusearch’s Tim Miller to call off the search for the 20-year-old’s body.
Miller said that they were unsure if this is where Guillen could be buried until a man working in the area said he smelled a foul odor, the outlet reported.
“We knew immediately, yep we are in the right spot,” Miller told the outlet.
Speaking about the photographed spot, he told KHOU 11 that the evidence that was found was the lid to a Pelican storage case – which a key witness reportedly said they saw being loaded into a car by Robinson on the night that Guillen vanished.
He also said that the spot where the remains were found was well-concealed.
