A female soldier from the 101st Airborne Division was found murdered in her off-base residence near Fort Campbell, Kentucky, on Saturday, as reported by local civilian authorities. The investigation into the death is ongoing.

Private First Class Katia Duenas-Aguilar, 23, was discovered dead approximately four miles from the base, according to a Clarksville, Tennessee police department spokesperson. Duenas-Aguilar was part of the 101st Airborne Division’s (Air Assault) Combat Aviation Brigade.

As of Tuesday, May 21st, both Army and civilian law enforcement had limited information on the case. No arrests have been made, and it remains unclear if other soldiers are suspected of involvement.

“We are stunned by the death of Pfc. Duenas-Aguilar,” stated Lt. Col. Tony Hoefler, spokesperson for the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). “In the meantime, we will continue cooperating with Army and local investigative authorities on this matter.”

Hailing from Mesquite, Texas, a suburb of Dallas, Duenas-Aguilar enlisted as an information technology specialist in 2018. She completed basic training at Fort Eisenhower, Georgia (formerly Fort Gordon), in 2019 and was subsequently assigned to Fort Campbell.

Her military accolades include two Army Achievement Medals, the Army Good Conduct Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, and the Army Service Ribbon.

Fort Campbell, located on the Kentucky-Tennessee border, is home to the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). The division, known for its intense training and deployment schedule, has approximately 30,000 soldiers.
