The U.S. Army announced Tuesday it is replacing the Fort Hood commander, while also appointing a senior commander to lead an investigation into the handling of the disappearance and death of Spc. Vanessa Guillen, Your Content has learned.

Major General Scott Efflandt has been removed from his position as commander of the base and will also no longer take on the role of commander of a division at Fort Bliss, the US Army announced in a statement Tuesday.

The army will announce the name of a new commander for the 1st Armored Division in the coming days.

The army also announced that Garrett will appoint Gen. John Murray, commanding general of US Futures Command, to ‘lead an in-depth investigation into the chain of command actions related to Spc. Vanessa Guillen.’

The investigation will also be separate from the Independent Review of Fort Hood, which began back in August.
