Republican U.S. Sen. John Cornyn has joined a bipartisan call for a congressional hearing on the “command climate and culture” at Fort Hood after the disappearances and deaths of several soldiers, including Army Spc. Vanessa Guillén, this year
The leadership at the U.S. Army Fort Hood base in Texas created an environment that led to the death of Sgt. Elder Fernandes, a Brockton native who was missing for more than a week until he was found dead this week, the family's attorney said
“Our investigation has been completed and is with the command and their legal team for further action if warranted."
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the Fernandes family during this challenging time," Temple Police Chief Shawn Reynolds said.
