Chandra Ann Levy (April 14, 1977 – c. May 1, 2001) was an American intern at the Federal Bureau of Prisons in Washington, D.C., who disappeared in May 2001. She was presumed murdered after her skeletal remains were found in Rock Creek Park in May 2002.[1] The case attracted attention from the American news media for years.[2]

The investigation led to media allegations of an extramarital affair with then-U.S. Representative Gary Condit,[3] a five-term 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 eventually cleared of involvement. However, the cloud of suspicion raised by the intense media focus on the missing intern and the later revelation of the affair led to his loss in his 2002 re-election campaign.[4]

The circumstances surrounding Levy's death were unclear for eight years. On March 3, 2009, D.C. authorities obtained a warrant to arrest Ingmar Guandique, an undocumented immigrant from El Salvador who had already been convicted of assaulting two other women in Rock Creek Park around the time of Levy's disappearance.[4] Prosecutors stated that Guandique had attacked and tied up Levy in a remote area of the park, leaving her to die of dehydration or exposure.[5] On November 22, 2010, Guandique was convicted of murdering Levy.[6]
