OTD May 1 - Chandra Levy
8 / 51
Metropolitan Police Department

2001: Chandra Levy, an intern at the Federal Bureau of Prisons in Washington, D.C., goes missing. The resulting investigation led to allegations of an affair with U.S. Rep. Gary Condit, a married, five-term Democrat from California. Condit was never named a suspect by police and was eventually cleared of involvement. Levy's remains would be found more than a year later in a city park. Nearly eight years after her death, D.C. authorities would charge Ingmar Guandique, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador, with Levy's murder. Guandique, who had already been convicted of assaulting two other women in the park where Levy's remains were found, was convicted in November 2010 and sentenced in 2011 to 60 years in prison.
