    One of the issues in the recent Virginia election was the Salvadoran MS-13 gang which thrives in the state, practically outnumbering the police in some counties. MS-13 is not a new arrival in the region, and one of its members, Ingmar Guandique, is the only person ever convicted for the murder of Chandra Levy of Modesto, California. In 2001, the University of Southern California graduate, 24, was living in Washington and working as an intern at the federal Bureau of Prisons. On May 1, 2001, Levy disappeared without a trace. Fingers quickly pointed at congressman Gary Condit, 53, a Modesto...

    The U.S. Attorney's Office in Washington, DC on Thursday moved to dismiss the case -- and a retrial -- against Ingmar Guandique, the illegal immigrant previously convicted of murdering intern Chandra Levy in May 2001, citing "unforeseen developments." Guandique, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador, is set to be released to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for removal proceedings. The 2010 conviction of Guandique -- and the 60-year prison sentenced imposed on him at the time -- was vacated and a new trial was ordered in 2015 based on what Guandique's defense team said was new evidence. "Today, in the...

    WASHINGTON -- A judge has been holding secret hearings in the case of the man convicted in the 2001 killing of Chandra Levy, the latest twist in a high-profile murder that went unsolved for years and captivated the public because of the intern's romantic relationship with a California congressman. The meetings, held sporadically behind closed doors at the courthouse over the last several weeks, raise questions about what comes next in a criminal case that appeared resolved by the 2010 conviction of Ingmar Guandique. The illegal immigrant from El Salvador is now serving a 60-year prison sentence in Levy's death,...

    A judge is holding secret hearings in the case of the man convicted in the 2001 killing of Washington intern Chandra Levy. Neither prosecutors nor defense lawyers have revealed the purpose of the hearings, which have been taking place in Washington behind closed doors. Several media organizations, including The Associated Press, are petitioning to open the proceedings. The next hearing takes place on February 7. Ingmar Guandique was convicted in 2010 of killing Levy, whose body was found in Washington's Rock Creek Park. The case captured the nation's attention because of Levy's relationship with California congressman Gary Condit. Condit was...

    DEVELOPING: A jury has reached a verdict in the trial of a man accused of killing Washington intern Chandra Levy, MyFoxDC.com reports. Ingmar Guandique is charged with murder in Levy's death nearly a decade ago. Levy disappeared in 2001. Her case drew attention when she was romantically linked to then-Congressman Gary Condit. The California Democrat was initially a suspect but police no longer think he was involved. Prosecutors say Levy's death fits a pattern of attacks by Guandique in 2001 in Washington's Rock Creek Park. That's where her remains were found. Defense lawyers say the Salvadoran immigrant has become a...

    Chandra Ann Levy (April 14, 1977–ca. May 1, 2001) was an intern at the Federal Bureau of Prisons in Washington, D.C., who disappeared in May 2001 and is presumed murdered after her skeletal remains were found in Rock Creek Park in May 2002. The investigation led to media allegations of an extramarital affair with then-U.S. Representative Gary Condit,[1] a Democrat representing California's 18th congressional district and a senior member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Condit was never named a suspect by police and was ultimately cleared of involvement, however the cloud of suspicion raised by the...

    -snip- The Chandra Levy case is the most famous unsolved murder in modern Washington, a mystery involving sex, power and secrets. At its center is a vivacious young intern who had crossed paths with a handsome, married congressman. The story triggered months of feverish worldwide media attention in 2001, before the Sept. 11 attacks shoved it aside and the investigation stalled. The Washington Post spent a year reconstructing the disappearance of Chandra Levy and the investigation into her death. Reporters interviewed police officials, investigators and suspects, many for the first time, and obtained details about dozens of previously unknown private...

    WASHINGTON -- Gary Condit's legal and financial travails just keep worsening. An Arizona judge has ordered the former Ceres congressman to pay $42,680.42 for filing a frivolous libel lawsuit. Condit's lawsuit against the tiny Sonoran News for a story referring to murder victim Chandra Levy amounted to harassment, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Kristin Hoffman ruled this week. Condit's actions showed "he was aware the lawsuit should never have been brought," Hoffman added.

    Although he is no longer an FBI agent, Brad Garrett still visits the steep, wooded hillside in a Washington, D.C., park where the skeletal remains of Chandra Levy, a federal intern from Modesto, were found five years ago this week, a year after she disappeared. No one has been charged in the killing of the 24-year-old, whose disappearance generated enormous publicity after authorities revealed that she had been having a relationship with her married hometown congressman, Gary Condit. Condit was defeated in 2002 by his former aide, Dennis Cardoza. Read more at http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2007/05/22/CHANDRA.TMP

    NEW YORK - Former U.S. Rep. Gary Condit must find a new lawyer to represent him in a defamation suit after his attorney withdrew from the case Wednesday, saying he believed it was meritless. ADVERTISEMENT Mark E. Goidell asked to resign from the case in a Jan. 15 submission to the court, saying he now agrees with the attorney representing writer Dominick Dunne that "the defamation claim in this action is not warranted by existing law or by a non-frivolous argument for new law." Goidell filed the lawsuit on Condit's behalf in November, claiming the writer made false claims about...

    Did you miss that headline in the news last week? Well, that's because no one ran it. Ingmar Guandique, a violent Salvadoran national who is serving a 10-year sentence for assaulting two female joggers in Washington's Rock Creek Park last year, was interrogated recently as part of the investigation into the intern murder mystery. But in my review of all 115 news items archived in the Lexis-Nexis database that mention Guandique in connection with the Levy case, not a single story referred to his status as a criminal illegal alien.

Asked in a recent deposition, "Can you describe in general terms your relationship with Ms. Levy?" the gray-haired ex-congressman from California tersely replied: "We were friends." "Did you relationship ever become romantic?" Condit is pressed again. "No," he replied, according to a transcript of the explosive deposition, parts of which are set to air today and tomorrow on the...

Manhattan District Judge Peter Leisure also said Condit must disclose information about his personal finances as part of the discovery in the suit.

"Unfortunately for plaintiff, he opened that door himself by filing this lawsuit," Leisure said. "The court cannot allow plaintiffs...
