President Donald Trump met with the family of slain soldier Vanessa Guillen at the White House on Thursday.

Trump promised the family to get “justice for Vanessa” and offered financial help if they needed to bury her.

Human remains were found at the end of June near the Leon River in Bell County, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) east of Fort Hood, during the search for Guillén.

Investigators were unable to use dental records to identify Guillén because of the state of her remains and instead used DNA from bone and hair samples, Khawam said.

Guillén’s family received the information in the company of their priest, she said.

Army officials identified the soldier suspected in Guillén’s disappearance as Aaron David Robinson.

Cecily Aguilar, a 22-year-old civilian from a community near Fort Hood, was arrested and charged with one count for allegedly helping hide the body of 20-year-old solider, according to a criminal complaint.

Guillén’s family has said that they believe she was sexually harassed by Robinson and is calling for a congressional investigation.
