After Guillen memorial marked by graffiti, LULAC plans to expand shrine

Early last week the Vanessa Guillen mural on North Fort Hood Street in front of a tattoo parlor was vandalized for the third time since it was created in 2020, according to a local woman who helps take care of the Killeen mural.

The mural was originally painted by artist Cherine Mendoza in July 2020 to honor Guillen, a Fort Cavazos solider who was murdered on post earlier that year.
