Scott posted videos to her personal social media saying she feared for her life after months of harassment, physical assault and retaliation.

If I end up dead, just know someone did it.

On Monday, Fort Hood officials posted a statement to Facebook saying they would investigate the allegations and hold leaders accountable.

The safety and well-being of Sgt. Scott is the priority, according to Col. Matt Ruedi. Fort Hood officials did not respond to many requests from Yahoo News.

Scott called that statement a lie and alleged a cover-up.

Scott said in her latest post that she is looking for a lawyer.

More than two dozen deaths, multiple disappearances and various tales of intimidation and violence have been reported on NBC News and NPR in the past two years, and her most recent allegation has renewed questions about the allegedly toxic culture of Fort Hood. Fort Hood has one of the highest rates of murder, sexual assault and sexual harassment in the Army according to Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy.

The base's dangerous culture was complained of by seven non-commissioned soldiers in a report.

One sergeant told the news site that he would be scared to send his child to Fort Hood.

The public needs to know what's going on.

Fort Hood has approximately 40,00 soldiers who serve there, but this number does not include soldiers and their families who have access to the base on a daily basis. Fort Hood police describe the base as a city.

According to Vanity Fair, 39 soldiers died or went missing in 2020. Spc was the most publicized of these. Guillen went missing in April of that year. She was killed by a hammer in the armory. The soldier who killed himself as police approached him was the suspect in her disappearance.

The cousin of Corlton Chee who passed out during physical fitness training in 2020 was described as "toxic" by the cousin.

Scott said she was taken to a hospital after she was arrested by undercover officers. Scott claimed that leaders tried to keep her there, but medical professionals refused and she was discharged. Scott says that Fort Hood officials followed and harassed her at the base.

For months, I have tried to bring awareness to these things in which Fort Hood continues to cover up and neglect.

Scott wrote in a post on Monday that he had been hawked down like a criminal after 11 months of fighting the corrupt system and leadership.

Scott didn't name any officers in her online statements, but she did show videos on her account of interactions with military police. Scott and the Army's general press office did not respond to requests for comment.

Scott said that he and many other soldiers had suffered and lost their lives.
