Vanessa Guillen: Trae Tha Truth to donate merchandise sales to the family of a soldier in Fort Hood


HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – Rapper and activist Trae Tha Truth shows off hanging out with the family of Vanessa Guillen, the Fort Hood soldier in Houston who was killed at the post.

The Houston rapper posted new merchandise on his Instagram page in his honor, with the intention of donating all profits to his family.

“Proud to announce that I have partnered with the #vanessaguillen family and that all proceeds from the Mexican colored ABN shirts and mask will be donated to her family to help and support her,” Trae wrote on Instagram with many new photos of him donning the gear.

Merchandise includes t-shirts and face masks with Trae’s logo in the colors of the Mexican flag.

A mask sells for 9.99, while the t-shirt, available in black and white, costs $ 29.99.

Earlier this week, Guillen’s family members who live in Mexico have learned they will be able to travel to Houston for his funeral. Guillen’s grandmother and six of her uncles and aunts have been granted humanitarian visas. MP Sylvia Garcia said she worked with the Mexican ambassador to help the Guillen family say their final farewells to the army specialist who was murdered at Fort Hood. Guillen’s body was found months after his disappearance.

Aaron David Robinson, a 20-year-old army specialist, has been identified as the person of interest in Guillen’s case. She disappeared in April. Robinson died by suicide when authorities contacted him, according to Special Agent Damon Phelps of the Army Criminal Investigations Command.

Cecily Aguilar, 22, a civilian suspect in the Guillen case has been charged with conspiring to falsify evidence. Police say she told investigators she was asked to help hide a body.

Guillen’s funeral plans are not yet known.

The Guillen family are planning to participate in a peaceful protest in Washington DC on July 30 calling for legislation in honor of Houstonians, according to lawyer Natalie Khawam.
