The Guillen family had been demanding information from the Fort Hood chain of command about their daughter's disappearance and were stonewalled for three months. With the intervention of Congresswoman Rep. Sylvia Garcia (D-Tex.) in mid-June and the family going to Washington, DC on July 1 to enlist the aid of other Congresspersons including Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), as highway crew reported finding human remains along a highway, finally the Army was pressured into revealing what they had uncovered during the three months since Guillen's disappearance.

2. Why was the phone of SPC Robinson not seized quickly and checked for his location on the evening of her disappearance, since he was the last person to see her?
3. Why did it take CID one month, until May 19, 2020 to search Robinson's cell phone?
4. Why did CID not follow up on May 19, 2020 on the GPS location of Robinson's cellphone on the night of April 22, 2020 which would have provided details of where he had gone the night of Guillen's disappearance?
5. Why was the first interview of Robinson's girlfriend Cecily Aguilar and who helped dismember, burn and bury Guillen not until when Robinson's phone record revealed that he had called Aguilar multiple times during the night of SPC Guillen's disappearance on April 22, 2020 and as late as 03:3Oam on April 23, 2020.
