New details in slaying of congressional intern

From NBC12 News

WASHINGTON D.C. (NBC12) - Investigators have prepared an arrest warrant in the eight-year-old case of a murdered congressional intern.

Chandra Levy disappeared back in 2001.

Her body was later found in Washington D.C.'s Rock Creek Park.

The suspect, Ingmar Guandique is currently serving time in a California prison for assaulting two women at that same park.

Levy's parents say police called them Friday night to tell them about the break in the case.

"There is no such thing as closure, we're going to live with that elephant in the room, and we want justice," said Chandra's mother Susan Levy.

Although congressman Gary Condit was never named a suspect in Levy's murder, the scandal cost him his seat in Congress.

The married congressman admitted to being romantically involved with Levy who worked as his intern.

Tonight, Condit's lawyer says this new development should remove the unfair cloud hanging over him.
