The remains of Pvt. Gregory Wedel-Morales were discovered in a Killeen, Texas, field by U.S. Army investigators on Friday, 10 months after the Fort Hood soldier disappeared. The Army suspects foul play, and it’s offering a $25,000 reward for information about the circumstances of his death, or the whereabouts of another Fort Hood soldier who disappeared within the past year.
The 23-year-old Wedel-Morales was last seen from as he was driving off the base in his car on Aug. 20, 2019, just days before he was scheduled to be discharged from the Army. About eight months after he vanished, on April 22, Pfc. Vanessa Guillen disappeared as well. She was most recently seen in a parking lot on the base, and her keys, ID, and wallet were all found where she was working earlier that day.
Officials say that have seen no credible information that links the two disappearances. An autopsy to determine the cause and manner of Wedel-Morales’ death has been scheduled.
