Arrest Imminent in Chandra Levy Case
Police are close to making an arrest in the long-unsolved Chandra Levy murder case. The likely suspect is Ingmar Guandique, who is already in prison for other attacks on women.
When the story of Levy's murder first emerged, much was made of the affair between Levy and California Representative Gary Condit, though Condit was never officially a suspect.
To follow up on the timeline above, Condit did not seek re-election, and relocated to Arizona.
The case is widely considered to be mishandled, from the relentless focus on Condit to police searching the wrong area for forensic evidence.
Police told Levy's parents Friday that an arrest was imminent, the San Francisco, California, television station reported.
Media reports said police were planning to arrest Ingmar Guandique, an inmate in the District of Columbia prison system.
Guandique has been in jail since approximately July 2001 for two similar but non-fatal, attacks on women in Washington DC's Rock Creek park, according to case FBI agent and ABC News consultant Brad Garrett.
This is one of Washington's most famous cold cases.
The problem had always been a lack of conclusive physical evidence to tie this suspect to the murder.
