In 2001, California native Chandra Levy disappeared while interning at the Federal Bureau of Prisons in Washington D.C. Her body was not found until a year later in Rock Creek Park, but the investigation revealed that California Congressman Gary Condit (D-Modesto) was having an affair with her, even though he was not considered a suspect. Now, 27-year-old Ingmar Guandique, a Salvadorian immigrant who was questioned by police for Levy's murder and is currently serving a 10 year term for two attacks on women during the same year at the same park, is reportedly now the prime suspect in the case. Police contacted Levy's mother, who said they are expecting to press charges in the next several days. Police have no comment.
