WASHINGTON (WUSA9) — Prosecutors say they will not retry a man convicted of killing Washington intern Chandra Levy.
A D.C. judge moved to dismiss the case against the prime suspect in the 2001 killing of the intern.
The U.S. Attorney asked to toss out case, citing what seems to mysterious new evidence obtained in the past week.
According to the statement, prosecutors concluded they could not convict Ingmar Guandique "based on recent unforeseen developments that were investigated over the past week." The statement does not elaborate.
Prosecutors had been preparing to retry Salvadoran immigrant Guandique, who'd been convicted in her death before the case against him collapsed.
Levy's 2001 disappearance created a national sensation after the Modesto, California, native was romantically linked with then-Congressman Gary Condit.
Levy's remains were found in Washington's Rock Creek Park in 2002. Prosecutors argued her death fit a pattern of attacks Guandique committed on female joggers. He was found guilty in 2010 of Levy's murder but granted a new trial last year.

I know this is almost a year late and I've been wanting to share my thoughts on this update since then, but I think they had a reason to focus on Guandique from the beginning since he did have history of assisting women in Rock Creek Park. Honestly that Park being in a place where some parts there are no houses nearby for a good 5 miles and being out at 4:00 is just a bad combination. Also doesn't this mean the case is once again unsolved?
