It has been over sixteen years since former Washington, DC intern Chandra Levy disappeared without a trace after leaving her apartment one fateful spring night. Her remains were later found, but the murder was never solved. There have been several people suspected of being involved, including former Congressman Gary Condit (her boss and alleged lover) and illegal immigrant Ingmar Guandique, but the crime still remains unsolved.

TLC and ID will be airing specials on the case, starting August 27th on ID and September 4th on TLC. The specials will go into all the details of Chandra’s life, the people who were involved and every detail in between. I recently had the chance to talk to Joe McCann, who was the private investigator for the Levy family.

During the exclusive, he revealed how difficult it was to deal with case involving a young woman, especially since he is a parent himself. He says that this special will reveal new information and we will be hearing more from her parents regarding the murder. While I won’t give anything away regarding the special, McCann said that it is a great way to reopen the case and remind people of what happened in hopes of finally solving it and bringing the killer to justice. We will hear from several people involved in the case and get a look into the family and how they dealt with the disappearance and loss of Chandra. There are several touching, emotional moments, so be prepared to have tissues ready. (This is based on what I have seen thus far.)

McCann also gave me a look back on when he was the PI for the Levy family in the beginning of the case. He said there were several moments he will never forget and that it was interesting having daily press conferences when the story initially broke about Chandra’s disappearance. It was one of the first times such a thing happened and it helped bring awareness to what was going on and kept people informed as news broke.

This case may remain unsolved as of now, but there is hope that we can finally get answers with this special. Hopefully, the Levys will get the answers they are looking for and finally get the closure they deserve.
