Chandra Levy murder conviction may be overturned due to questionable witness

chandra-levy-conviction-may-be-overturned-fairuse.jpgTwelve years after her disappearance, and the case of Chandra Levy still hasn't reach it's conclusion. The 24-year-old Capitol Hill intern was last seen in May 2001. Following the disappearance, her family disclosed to police that she had been having an affair with U.S. Representative Gary Condit.

When Condit was unwilling to cooperate with investigators, speculation arose that he was behind the disappearance. While he was never charged, it completely derailed his political career.

The man who was eventually charged in her death, Ingmar Guandique, was convicted in 2010 with no physical evidence linking him to the crime. However, two other women came forward, claiming he had also attacked them in the same park where Levy's remains were found. Additionally a jailhouse informant claims that Guandique confessed the murder to him.

Now, CBS News is reporting the credibility of one of the witnesses is in doubt, however not even Levy's family knows who. The judge in the case has imposed a strict gag order, preventing any information about the proceedings from coming out. "Whether they have to have a new trial or have another suspect, or whatever, we don't know," her father Robert Levy says, "They can't tell us because it's secret."
