Authorities Seeking Public's Help in Death of Young Mother, Soldier at Fort Campbell, Stabbed Nearly 70 Times!

Fort Campbell Pfc. Katia Dueñas-Aguilar, 23, was a loving daughter and mother to a 4-year-old son. She's described as being a loving person and a good mother to her son. That's why it's hard to believe that someone would take her life.

Police in neighboring Clarksville, Tennessee,said officers responded to an ambulance call shortly after 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 18 in the 900 block of Tiny Town Road, where they found Duenas-Aguilar dead inside her home. Her death was ruled a homicide. Clarksville is about 14 miles (22 kilometers) southeast of Fort Campbell across the state line.

The Montgomery County Medical Examiner said that Dueñas Aguilar, was stabbed 68 times in her neck and upper body, the Clarksville Leaf-Chronicle reported.

Investigating authorities have been seeking the public's help in locating any suspects of additional information in Dueñas-Aguilar's murder and have little to nothing to go on.

The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) has offered a $25,000 reward and Duenas-Aguilar’s mother, Carmen Aguilar, had committed an additional $30,000 to the reward fund.

A native of Mesquite, Texas, Duenas-Aguilar was laid to rest in her hometown but her mother, and the authorities, are still looking for answers. “For this mother to commit, not just money but her total soul, to finding whoever did this deserves our complete and unequivocal support.” LULAC national president Domingo Garcia said.

Both local and military law enforcement are reportedly involved in the homicide investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact a Clarksville police detective at 931-648-0656, ext. 5720. Anonymous tips may also be shared with the Clarksville Montgomery County Crime Stoppers’ Tips Line at 931-645-8477 or
