VIDEO: Vanessa Guillen case featured on 20/20

 The murder case of Houstonian Vanessa Guillen continues to get national attention as ABC News' "20/20" sheds new light on the case. In the show, abc13 KTRK's Steve Campion sat down with the news magazine show to discuss his reporting of the case. 

Here are some video clips of the report and a description of last Friday's program:

Fort Hood soldier Vanessa Guillen, brutally murdered in April, captured international attention and sparked a #MeToo movement in the military. 

In a new “20/20,” cameras profile Vanessa’s family as they tirelessly advocate for justice. Along the way, Vanessa’s parents, Rogelio and Gloria Guillen, and sisters, Mayra and Lupe Guillen, share emotional memories of Vanessa. They reveal her excitement to join the Army, the changes they say they saw in her while at Fort Hood, and insight into her sexual harassment allegations. 

They also discuss how they learned about her disappearance, the desperate search to find her, and overwhelming support across the country. 

In the two-hour program, ABC News Anchor John Quiñones sat down for an in-depth interview with Ryan McCarthy, Secretary of the Army. McCarthy shares previously unreported information about the investigation and answers questions about the circumstances surrounding Vanessa’s disappearance, the handling of the investigation, and the changes the Army hopes to put in place following her death. 

“20/20” features an exclusive interview with Ayrren Clough, best friend of Cecily Aguilar who authorities charged with helping dispose of Vanessa’s body. Aguilar pleaded not guilty to the charges.
