Police Examine Remains From D. C. Park
Police in Washington D.C. are investigating the discovery of a skull and some skeletal remains in a park near the former apartment of government intern Chandra Levy, who vanished more than a year ago. Police say someone walking a dog early today found the skull. Other human bones have also been found in the same area of Rock Creek Park. Washington D.C. Deputy Police Chief Terrance Gainer said at the scene: “The possibility exists that it´s a female based on some preliminary work.”
Gainer says investigators have no idea whether the remains are those of Levy. For several weeks, the park area had been searched extensively for clues in her disappearance in early May of last year. Police Chief Charles Ramsey said the remains were found in more than one location in a heavily-wooded area of the sprawling park in northwestern Washington D.C. For more than a year, police have been saying they have no suspects and no telltale clues in the disappearance of the 24-year-old Modesto woman. The case brought an avalanche of publicity because of a reported romantic link between Levy and Congressman Gary Condit.
