The U.S. Attorney’s Office for Washington, D.C., ruled Thursday that the man who was convicted and then later granted a retrial for the 2001 death of D.C. intern Chandra Levy will be released and not be retried. “Based on recent unforeseen developments that were investigated over the past week, the Office moved to dismiss the case charging Ingmar Guandique with the May 2001 murder of Chandra Levy,” prosecutors said in a statement, without specifying what information led to the decision. Levy was a 24-year-old intern who was romantically connected to then-U.S. Rep. Gary Condit (D-CA) when she disappeared in 2001. Her body was found a year later in Rock Creek Park; Condit was cleared as a suspect. According to prosecutors, Guandique, who was convicted of the murder in 2010, will be released to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement where he will face deportation proceedings.
