? Chandra Levy's remains?

  1. I apologize if this isn't appropriate for this board... but I heard this on the news this morning, here's a link:
    Chandra Levy

    The whole Levy case has affected me deeply, probably because I live so close to Washington, and she and I are the same age, and we even look sort of alike. I always sort of hoped that she had gone away somewhere, even though I knew it was inevitable they would find her body eventually. If those truly are her bones scattered around Rock Creek park.

    Anyway, I'll be praying for her family today, and I just wanted to see if anyone else had any comments to share about this news or the case in general.

    Take care and stay safe,
    R.

    I had no idea. She disappeared so quickly from the headlines after 9/11. I hope those are her remains so her family can finally bring her home.....Thanks for sharing...

    Fresh off CNN:
    - Human remains found in Washington D.C. park are those of intern Chandra Levy, a law enforcement source tells the Associated Press Watch CNN or log on to http://CNN.com /AOL Keyword: CNN for the latest news.

    I'm listening to a regional talk radio show right now (Albuquerque), and people are calling and speculating whether Chandra was pregnant, and if that's what got her murdered.

    Poor girl. I'm glad her poor parents can now 'fully' grieve and give her a proper burial. I hope they nail Gary Condit to the wall. Slimey bastard.

    As usual, Shay has taken the words right out of my mouth.

    As a parent, I can't begin to imagine the torture of NOT KNOWING. I wasn't sure of when this all started, but it's been close to a year now, hasn't it?

    She was last seen alive April 30 last year (my birthday, ironically, which is why it's easy to remember)

    Brace yourselves for the media circus....

    Exactly...And Heather, as far as what you said about being a parent and not imagining thinking about it, I can't even make my mind go there....Wonder if we will ever know any details. Wonder if we want to....So sad...

    Iwon.com news story states that a Smithsonian anthropoligist will help to try to determine cause of death.
    Her poor parents, at least now they know and will no longer have to wonder, very sad.

    I agree that now perhaps the family can have some closure to the torture they've been going through for the past year, Chandra can have a decent burial, and perhaps everyone can start to heal a little bit.
    The whole situation just sickens me.
    I went by Condit's website, just out of perverse curiosity, and it wasn't addressed there at all.... but he is advertising for new interns.

    Ewwwwww

    That is BEYOND sick


    Here is something far-fetched....

    On the radio last night someone suggested that the timing of finding Chandra may be linked to all of the latest terrorist warnings. He said since Condit was on the Intelligence Committee, perhaps she knew stuff she shouldn't have known, and someone took it upon themselves to silence her.

    Personally I think the person who suggested this visits the conspiracy theory websites waaay too much What would finding her NOW have to do with current terrorist warnings? Sheesh


    (I am a talk radio junkie....I admit it....)
