“These days are frighteningly horrible. I refuse to think that was it (about his daughter’s suicide). She wasn’t like that. I don’t accept that. She doesn’t check me (block), because of my daughter’s characteristics, ”said Mrs. Ruiz to Univisión News.

“She told me that a sergeant was harassing her, that they were all bastards and that they just wanted to fuck her. Everyone wants me, everyone wants me to sleep with them,” added the mother of the dead soldier to Telemundo.

Ana left Tacámbaro, a municipality located in Mexico, in the state of Michoacán, in December 2019 and moved to the United States, where her father Ubaldo Zabalduo lives and is a citizen. When she arrived, Ana was able to enlist in the army without much problem. “She always liked discipline, she felt that within the military camp, she could have a better standard of living,” their relatives assure.

In a statement sent to Noticias Telemundo, the military base reported: “Sadly, the First Cavalry Division lost the trooper Ana Basaldua Ruiz, a combat engineer who has served in the division for the past 15 months. The Army Criminal Investigation Division and the chain of command are actively investigating the facts and circumstances surrounding her death.

This event occurred on April 22, 2020, when she was declared missing inside this base. Not knowing his whereabouts was a torment for his relatives for two months, until they found the remains of the young woman in June of the same year.

According to investigations, the reason for his disappearance was for an alleged case of sexual harassment in which Guillén defended herself and was subsequently hammered to death by the guy who tried to abuse her, Army Specialist Aaron David Robinson. Despite the efforts of the authorities, Robinson’s motives are not really known, because before being captured he committed suicide.
