Introduction

In the spring of 2001, Washington D.C. was captivated by the disappearance of 24-year-old federal intern Chandra Levy. Levy had been having an affair with married Congressman Gary Condit and after she vanished, Condit became the prime suspect. Through interviews with key players, archival footage and re-enactments, this film tells the true story of one of America’s most sensational murder cases.

The Case of Chandra Levy

TheCase of Chandra Levy is a made-for-TV movie that aired on Investigation Discovery in 2014. The film tells the story of the investigation into the 2001 death of Chandra Levy, a 24-year-old intern who disappeared while working in Washington, D.C.

Levy’s body was found more than a year later in a park in Rock Creek Park. Investigators initially focused on Congressman Gary Condit, with whom Levy was having an affair, but he was ultimately cleared. The case went cold until 2016, when police arrested and charged Ingmar Guandique, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador who had been convicted of assaulting two other women in the park.

Guandique pleaded guilty to Levy’s murder in 2010 and is currently serving a life sentence.

The Suspects

The unsolved murder of Chandra Levy has captivated the American public for over a decade. Who killed the beautiful young Washington intern? Was it her married lover, Congressman Gary Condit? Was it an obsessed fan? Or was it someone with a much more sinister motive?

This film takes a close look at the evidence and the suspects in the case, and tries to piece together what really happened on that fateful day in 2001.

The Investigation

The investigation into the death of Chandra Levy captured the public’s attention for years. Levy, a congressional intern, disappeared in May 2001. Her body was found in Rock Creek Park in Washington, D.C., more than a year later.

The case took many twists and turns, with multiple suspects coming and going. In the end, no one was ever charged with Levy’s murder. However, the investigation did result in the conviction of California Congressman Gary Condit on charges of obstruction of justice.

The Trial

Chandra Levy’s murder trial began on November 9, 2010, nearly nine years after her body was found in Rock Creek Park. The trial lasted for six weeks, during which time the jury heard testimony from more than 60 witnesses.

The defendant, Ingmar Guandique, was a Salvadoran immigrant who had been convicted of assaulting two other women in the park. He maintained his innocence in the Levy case, but the prosecutors presented evidence that he had lied to police and that his DNA had been found on one of Levy’s discarded socks.

On December 16, 2010, the jury found Guandique guilty of first-degree murder, and he was sentenced to 60 years in prison.

The Aftermath

Ten years ago, Chandra Levy disappeared. The case sparked a national obsession—and then, just as mysteriously, fizzled out. Now, with new information, suspicions have shifted. Who really killed Chandra Levy?

The Movie
