What ever happened to Chandra Levy? Did her disappearance and presumed death result from information she could have uncovered from the Bureau of Prison's records as part of her official duties there.

If I remember rightly Chandra was peripherally involved in the Oklahoma City bombing story as she worked with journalists and TV personalities arranging coverage of Timothy McVeigh's execution. It all seems to have went quiet about her a few months after Mc Veigh's death.

I found the following article on my hard drive, I must have saved it to read at a later date but forgot all about it until now. Reading though it has sparked of my curiosity again, this is why I'm looking in to it all again to see if any new information has surfaced. I don't know the website that I found this article on so I can't go back to it or provide a link. I've typed in the name of Chandra Levy in nearly all the major search engines but the websites that come up all seem to have old news about Chandra.

By Jim Rarey

This writer has been challenged by several subscribers to provide more
Information on which the scenario was based in the Medium Rare article of July
26th (Condit’s Rock and a Hard Place). In that article it was postulated that
Chandra Levi may have come into possession of information that made her
Dangerous to powerful people, not necessarily Gary Condit, that required her

Consequently, please bear with us while we "build the case."

It appears obvious that Chandra is (was) a bright inquisitive girl and young
Woman with a penchant for intrigue.

In high school Chandra joined the Explorer Scouts police program where she
Sometimes worked undercover to catch retailers selling alcohol to minors. She
was also a writer for the school newspaper.

After her 1995 high school graduation she spent four years at San Francisco
State University majoring in journalism with a minor in criminal justice. She
entered the graduate program at the University of Southern California (USC)
working toward, and earning, a masters degree in public administration.

The USC program required a number of internships in lieu of a dissertation,
which Chandra fulfilled with a vengeance.

An in depth article by Washington Times writer Frank J. Murray, entitled "Who
is Chandra Levy," outlines an extensive and curious convergence with the
Condit family.

>From August 1998 to August 1999 she was an editorial assistant in the sports
department of the Modesto Bee newspaper, a part of a newspaper chain including
the Sacramento Bee which is a left leaning partisan supporter of California

Overlapping that internship was a stint at the Modesto police department where
she worked as a clerk. Condit’s older brother is a Modesto police officer who
was demoted in rank stemming from unauthorised purchases and disposal of
firearms from the police inventory of confiscated weapons.

During the period she was with the police department, Chandra, then 22, had a
year-long affair with another police officer Mark Steele, ten years her senior.
Steele, in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, said Chandra took it hard
when he broke off the relationship and continued to pursue him. Steel is no
longer with the department.

For three months in 1999, ending in December, Chandra interned in the lobbying
office of Republican Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan.

>From February to June 2000 she interned on the legal staff of Democrat Governor
Gray Davis. Two of Gary Condit’s offspring were also on Davis’ staff at that
time. Son Chad was the governor’s liaison to the Central Valley at a starting
salary of $95,234 a year. Daughter Cadee made $30,000 a year as a Davis press
aide. It is not known if Chandra knew or even met Condit’s daughter and son.

In October of 2000 Chandra started her intern job at the Bureau of Prisons in
Washington, D.C. According to Murray’s article, "Her job at the Bureau of
Prisons information office required her to do Internet searches and scan
newspapers to prepare daily news summaries, answer telephone calls and mail, and
help with special projects. In one, she co-ordinated media attendance at planning
sessions for the execution of Oklahoma bomber Timothy McVeigh." (Emphasis

According to a Washington Post story, Chandra’s duties also included researching
Bureau of Prison records.

In an earlier article, this writer had speculated that Chandra, during her
research, may have come across evidence supporting allegations made on the
Internet that Dr. Louis Jolyn (Jolly) West had visited McVeigh in prison a
number of times. One such article asserted the number of visits was seventeen.

Dr. West (since conveniently deceased) was deeply involved in mind control
experiments with ties to the CIA. At one time West had tried to set up a
department at UCLA, where he was a professor, involving melting of brain
synapses to control the subjects’ minds. These rumours had fostered the belief in
some that McVeigh was indeed a "Manchurian Candidate" programmed for the
Oklahoma bombing. McVeigh at one time claimed that a microchip had been
implanted in him while in the service.

It is entirely reasonable to suggest that Chandra may have uncovered such
evidence during her search of bureau records. If she let the wrong person,
including Condit, know she had that evidence, she may have signed her own death

In the writer’s last article, it was also suggested that the intelligence
community might be trying to divert attention from Condit to relieve pressure on
him from some damaging disclosure he could make.

Supporting that suspicion is one fact of which knowledgeable readers will
immediately grasp the significance. The FBI’s lead investigator on the Levy case
is one Bradley J. Garrett. According to author and investigative reporter Todd
Fahey, who specialises in intelligence affairs, Garrett was the FBI’s lead
investigator in the murder of intern Mary Caitlan Mahoney at a Georgetown
Starbucks coffeeshop as well as the "suicide" of White House Counsel Vince

If there is a diversion or cover-up in progress, this writer does not believe it
is to save Gary Condit. It most surely would be to hide a much larger issue with
national security implications.

you would be correct phoenix cross. they found her skeleton in a park in DC. it was a while ago, i'm not sure how far bac it was, but i'd be willing to bet it was close to a year ago.

Eleven month back, almost to the day, that the discovery was "officially" confirmed. Lots on ATS then: the oddest thing was not the discovery but the manner of it. The park in DC had been repeatedly searched by "experts" and then, one day, the body just turned up. It could have been taken there, of course.
There was a genuinely farcical attempt to pin it on a minor sicko who had been known to assault joggers.
Thereafter nothing happened beyond a flurry of lawsuits on the part of the odious Condit and his similarly unlovable spouse.
It joined the list of events, scandals, lies and crimes from 9-11 onward in political and corporate America that almost everyone has (a) ceased to question and (b) entirely forgotten.

You guys are both right, her body was discovered in a DC park in may of 2002.

"The skeletal remains of missing former Washington intern Chandra Levy were found in a park in northwest Washington on Wednesday, almost 13 months after she vanished without a trace."

Thanks for the link ProudAmerican... I don't beleave she died at the hands of a madman that stalked joggers...Funny how she was found a man searching for turtles in "a very inaccessible area" and was alerted to the remains by his dog.

If it was a hit by powerful people in the government, why would they allow so much press about it. It would seem to me they would try and keep it secret.

just goes to show the media doesn't really care they just want a story and when the story is old they are like "meh" look at laci peterson they didn't talk about her till they found her body and look at 9/11 one of the world's most horrific events but i guess thats why they call them the news to tell us whats new

posted on Apr, 23 2003 @ 02:27 PM
this was certainly no professional "hit" and if so, the guy needs to find a new career....

At first they found items that easily would have come loose in a struggle....

Then, the guy found the body. What's so hard to believe about looking for turtles? I used to do this as a kid, and sell them to local pet shops... It seems logical that her attacker dragged her off from the common trails, and then likely raped her and killed her. Since it was set back, most didn't smell the decay, but the dog did, and thus lead him there...

The reason the story died, is that there no longer was much to the whole "conspiracy" aspect of it any longer...
