Police Source Confirms Body Was Levy's

A law enforcement source says the remains of intern Chandra Levy have been found.

Levy's skull and bones were found today in a Washington DC park. The finding ends the search for the federal intern whose disappearance more than a year ago riveted the nation and led to the political downfall of Congressman Gary Condit.

Levy, 24, of Modesto, Calif., disappeared sometime after logging off her computer at about 1 p.m. on May 1, 2001.

When police searched her apartment they found her wallet, credit card, computer and cell phone. Only her keys were missing.

Police conducted intensive searches in the weeks following her disappearance but turned up no solid clues. They looked at a variety of theories - murder, suicide or that Levy went into hiding.

They also questioned Condit several times. The 54-year-old, married lawmaker denied having anything to do with the disappearance but did eventually acknowledge an affair with her, a police source said.

Police repeatedly said Condit was not a suspect.

The break in the case came Wednesday when a man walking his dog came across skeletal remains in Rock Creek Park. Police had found evidence last year on Levy's laptop computer that she had searched a Web site for the park's Klingle Mansion on the day she vanished.

The bones were found about a mile north of the mansion and about four miles away from Levy's apartment. Friends had said Levy frequented the 1,754-acre park, located in northwest Washington.

    14 years as part of the Ole Miss football program as a coach or player has prepared Matt Luke for this opportunity. Admittedly it doesn't come under the circumstances he might've envisioned. But with a Rebel bloodline that runs 3 generations deep, the position fulfills a lifelong dream. "I can truly tell y'all today that this is my dream job," Luke said Monday at his first press conference as Ole Miss interim head coach. "It's a job that I've been preparing my whole li...

    The Pascagoula Panthers open the 2017 football season on the road. In fact, their first three games are road contests. That scheduling quirk may give field turf crews just enough time to get War Memorial Stadium ready for the September 8 home opener. The wet weather in South Mississippi is placing quite the burden on construction workers as they attempt to complete stadium renovations. The project was suppose to be finished before the beginning of Pascagoula's football season.
