With all of the media still reeling over the death of Fort Hood soldier Vanessa Guillen, there has been yet another gruesome discovery near the Army base!
Another soldier was found unresponsive just a few days ago and just under a month since the first officer was found dead. Pvt. Mejhor Morta, 26, was found unresponsive July 17 in the vicinity of Stillhouse Hollow Lake, Fort Hood officials said on Tuesday. Stillhouse Hollow Lake is a reservoir located in Bell County and managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Fort Worth District.
According to reports, Morta, of Pensacola, Fla., entered the Army in September 2019 as a Bradley Fighting Vehicle mechanic. Since May 2020, he had been assigned to 1st Battalion, 5th Cavalry Regiment, 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, according to a statement released by the Fort Hood Press Center. His awards and decorations include the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, National Defense Service Medal and the Army Service Ribbon.
The first officer to be found was 24-year-old Fort Hood soldier Gregory Wedel-Morales on June 19th and then the remains of Vanessa Guillen were found on June 30th.
Officials have not said whether the death is considered suspicious. The Bell County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the incident.
We don't know what's going on out at Fort Hood but something is definitely wrong there.
