It is a murder that continues to shock the nation. Chandra Levy’s alleged killer is now going to be free. Today, there is now mounting evidence that former California Congressman Gary Condit is allegedly the primary suspect for the death of a former intern.
Levy was a 24-year-old Californian living in Northwest D.C. when she suddenly disappeared on May 1, 2001. Her disappearance made headlines as she had been romantically linked with then Rep. Gary Condit. Levy had been a former federal intern. Her body was found a year later at the Rock Creek Park in Washington.
Recently, NBC Washington reported that Ingmar Guandique, who had been previously convicted of killing Levy, will now be released after prosecutors agreed to drop all charges against him on Thursday. Although prosecutors did not give further details on the “recent unforeseen developments” surrounding the case, they said they could no longer prove that Guandique is guilty beyond reasonable doubt.
According to a report from Fox 5, Guandique’s lawyers had been seeking to take depositions from a number of women who claimed they had sexual relationships with Condit. Defense lawyers also pressed that Condit had an “obvious motive to kill Ms. Levy in order to keep the relationship secret.”
Another angle being pointed out is that Condit allegedly has a history of having “aggressive sex” with women. According to a report from the Washington Post, one woman who had been in a sexual relationship with Condit prior to his involvement with Levy told an FBI agent that Condit liked to tie her up during sex. He also showed preference for an iron bed with posts for sexual bondage.
Levy’s body was found with a pair of jogging tights nearby. The said tights had been tied in a knot. Neither Condit nor Guandique’s DNA were found on Levy’s remains or the tights.
