Washington — Police Tuesday issued an arrest warrant for El Salvadoran immigrant Ingmar A. Guandique in the 2001 killing of Chandra Levy, opening a dramatic new chapter in one of the nation's most enduring murder mysteries.
Resurrecting a cold but still infamous case, federal prosecutors say a combination of forensic evidence and inmate testimony now enables them to charge the 27-year-old Guandique. He has been periodically eyed as a potential suspect since 2002, but a new team of investigators began intensifying their scrutiny last fall. Guandique is currently serving a 10-year sentence in federal prison in California for attacks on two women in Washington's Rock Creek Park, the site where Levy's remains were found.
