One of the top stories in the country right now is a report that an arrest is near in the killing of Washington intern Chandra Levy eight years ago.
According to the Washington Post:
Sources with knowledge of the investigation who spoke under condition of anonymity told The Post that police plan to arrest Ingmar Guandique. The 27-year-old Salvadoran immigrant attacked two women at knifepoint in Rock Creek Park around the time of Levy’s disappearance in May 2001. He was convicted in those attacks and is serving a 10-year sentence in federal prison in California.
The Sunday newspaper headlines could also say, “(Former Congressman) Gary Condit didn’t do it.”
Condit, who lost a re-election bid in 2002, had maintained his innocence and said he was the victim of overzealous prosecutors and a rabid media.
“It is unfortunate that an insatiable appetite for sensationalism blocked so many from searching for the real answers for so long,” Condit said on Saturday according to the Post. “I had always hoped to have the opportunity to tell my side of the story, but too many were not prepared to listen. Now I plan to do so, but I will have no further comments on this story at this time.”
