Statistics show that nearly one in three female soldiers are sexually abused whilst serving their country. For some the consequences are tragic. One victim’s family is determined to find the truth.

Just 5 weeks into LaVena Lynn Johnson’s Iraq tour, the 19-year-old was found dead in a contractor’s tent. It was concluded to be a ‘self-inflicted gunshot wound’. But LaVena’s family believes she was raped and murdered by another soldier, and the army is trying to cover it up. LaVena’s father claims ‘somebody murdered my daughter. I couldn’t give up on my baby. So I’m going to fight this until I get justice for her.’
