Levy Was Killed, DC Examiner Says

The area where Levy's remains were found by a man and his dog who were looking for turtles was far from the more heavily traveled parts of the park, and near where two other women were attacked while they were jogging wearing headphones and listening to Walkman-like devices.

But Martin said Levy was not the type of woman to go into a dangerous area or to be unaware of her surroundings.

"The family believes Chandra, as careful as she was, would not have ventured into this heavily wooded area of Rock Creek Park on her own," Martin said. "She would have watched herself. We do not believe the spot where Chandra's remains were discovered, that she went there on her own."

Levy's apartment was near Rock Creek Park, which police searched three times last summer after analysis of her computer revealed she had done a search for directions to the Klingle Mansion, a historic home in the park, the day she disappeared.

The young woman's body had apparently been in the park for a long time, and the bones were not all in one location, according to Ramsey. Investigators have been trying to determine whether the area where the remains were found was where Levy died, or whether the body had been moved.

Martin called for police to interview Condit again, saying he could provide insight into her activities and state of mind near the time of her death. He urged police to pursue the investigation fully.

"According to the authorities, they recovered sufficient evidence there to rule this a homicide, which essentially means that Chandra died at the hands of another person," Martin said.

"We want justice."
