She was a pretty 24-year-old who disappeared from her apartment on May 1, 2001.
Chandra Levy’s remains were found in Rock Creek Park a year after her disappearance and the cause of death was ruled a homicide, however no one was ever charged with her murder.
What followed in the wake of her disappearance was the Gary Condit scandal. Condit, a California congressman admitted having an affair with Chandra, but always denied any involvement in Levy’s disappearance or death.
Now, it seems an arrest in the murder case may be imminent.
Police have turned over evidence to the U.S. Attorney’s office seeking an arrest warrant for Ingmar Guandique.
Guandique is currently in prison for assaults on two women in the same park where Chandra’s remains were ultimately found.
It appears Guandique allegedly confessed to Levy’s murder to another inmate back in 2001. Guandique, an illegal Salvadoran immigrant, was interviewed by the U.S. attorney's office in Washington by prosecutors and D.C. detectives.
He has now told investigators that while he had seen Levy in the park on several occasions, he had no part in her death.
Let’s hope for Chandra and her family that justice will finally be served.
