In Texas, the body of a missing soldier stationed at the Fort Hood Army base was found Tuesday night hanging from a tree some 30 miles from the base. Twenty-three-year-old Elder Fernandes went missing last week. He had recently reported being sexually abused at the base and was working with an investigation unit. Last month, the remains of 20-year-old Fort Hood soldier Vanessa Guillén were also discovered near the base after she was bludgeoned to death and disappeared in April by a soldier Guillén had accused of sexually harassing her. Fernandes is the 13th Fort Hood soldier to have disappeared or been killed this year.
