Jury finds Ingmar Guandique guilty of murder of Chandra Levy [Condit is still a dirtbag]
Fox news Alert (Live) ^ | 22 NOV 10 | dcbryan1

Posted on 11/22/2010 10:12:30 AM PST by DCBryan1

DEVELOPING: A jury has reached a verdict in the trial of a man accused of killing Washington intern Chandra Levy, MyFoxDC.com reports.

Ingmar Guandique is charged with murder in Levy's death nearly a decade ago.

Levy disappeared in 2001. Her case drew attention when she was romantically linked to then-Congressman Gary Condit. The California Democrat was initially a suspect but police no longer think he was involved.

Prosecutors say Levy's death fits a pattern of attacks by Guandique in 2001 in Washington's Rock Creek Park. That's where her remains were found.

Defense lawyers say the Salvadoran immigrant has become a scapegoat for a botched investigation.

An FB expert said Wednesday that former congressman Gary Condit's DNA was found on underwear belonging to murdered intern Chandra Levy, but was not found on any clothing from the crime scene.

Giusti testified that panties taken from Levy's condo in 2001 tested positive for sperm, and DNA linked it to Condit. Underwear found at the crime scene was also tested, but an initial test found nothing. However, a second test on the underwear six years later found male DNA, he said, but that it did not match Guandique. Prosecutors said the DNA hit was a result of contamination after the evidence was removed from Rock Creek Park.

You should have left off the parentheses, the Condit reference should definitely be part of the headline.

The DC police are known incompetents. But I suspect they may not have looked too hard at first precisely becaue they assumed that Condit did it.

By the time they took it up again, the evidence was old. Whether Guandique did it or not, who knows? But it sounds as if they at least managed to pin it on someone who deserves to be taken out of circulation. Too bad he can’t just be executed, but I guess the taxpayers will pick up the rest of the tab on this, as usual. In the case of DC, I guess that means all of us.

Poor naive girl, I still say her death looks like a hit Kinky Condit contracted through his leather-biker-gang contacts

Condit’s mysterious travels throughout the streets of DC and as far away as western VA to dispose of his conquest trophies in the weeks after her disappeance cannot be explained logically as the acts of an uninvolved man

Guandique will probably suffer a “heart attack” or “beating” or “suffocation” death in prison to close out this inquiry

Of course not only did/do liberals support easy immigration but Salvadorans were given special status by libs.

Our Lefty friends also supported a “peace process” in El Salvador that abolished the security organization that kept gangs in ckeck there and thus the “pease dividend” was largely erased by a rise in common crime. The ole Guardia Nacional and the Policia de Hacienda knew how to deal with Guandiques.

Fallen ex-U.S. Rep. Gary Condit has defiantly denied under oath that he had a steamy affair with doomed intern Chandra Levy — flying in the face of allegations from police and her family that he did, NBC's "Today" show reports. Yet his sperm was found in Chandra's underwear identified by the FBI. Why wasn't he arrested for perjury?

Asked in a recent deposition, "Can you describe in general terms your relationship with Ms. Levy?" the gray-haired ex-congressman from California tersely replied: "We were friends."

"Did you relationship ever become romantic?" Condit is pressed again.

"No," he replied, according to a transcript of the explosive deposition, parts of which are set to air today and tomorrow on the TV news show.

“What an inconclusive solution.”

What is inconclusive? Chandra finally has justice. The DC police botched the investigation. Her body should have been found in within a month of her missing. This illegal should have come on the radar within the first days of the investigation.

Condit was a serial philanderer but he did not deserve to be branded as a murderer. He had nothing to do with her disappearance.

I have heard this before.

However, it does not necessarily follow that Ingmar Guandique is not guilty because the DC Police are @$$HOLE$.

Why single out Condit for such an illustrious title, though he deserves it? He did relatively little damage to the welfare of this nation, as compared to others who are still in Congress.

By definition, ALL democrats and liberals are scumbags. It's simply an immutable code in their DNA.

And ALL illegal immigrants must be immediately incarcerated. Afterward, I'd be 100% in favor of the death penalty. The crime of breaking into a sovereign nation and robbing taxpayers (by gaming the system) is a terrible, unforgivable sin in my estimation. The wages of sin is death. And yes, that includes Jessica Colotli, too.

If we start using capital punishment as a means of swift and sure justice on these lawbreakers, that will send a clear message to those illegals who consider crossing into Our Country.

Gut instinct - the political class protected the political class. There's no way a poor immigrant can fight an organization with unlimited funds, unlimited power, and an unlimited agenda.

I think it is questionable as to wther this guy killed her.

There has never been any question that the investigation was botch.

We don’t know if Condit had anything to do with her disappearance. His despicable behavior made him “derving” of scorn IMO.

Gut instinct. A first initial reaction is usually right, even though it may not be logically explainable at the time.

Most people immediately KNEW Condit had something to do with it, just like people KNOW OJ killed his wife. Just because these creeps manage to get off doesn't mean they're innocent.

The immigrant was no saint and probably should have been in jail a long time ago, but he sure made a good patsy when one was needed.

The evidence is compelling about the illegal’s guilt. The jury’s conclusion is strong evidence about his guilt.

Another inmate testifying that he killed her is hardly “compelling evidence”. In fact, there was no evidence at all that I have heard.

No eyewitnesses, no DNA, nothing. I would have agreed but there is no evidence at all.

Juries get it wrong sometimes. Google OJ Simpson.

Having served on several military court martial panels my instinct says Ingmar’s jury rendered the verdict they believed to be correct—that is it was based on the evidence presented.

People tend to take very seriously finding someone guilty of a capital crime. Moreover, the jury selection process tends to favor the defense.

That said, it does not mean Condit was not complicit in the murder. And it in no way absolves him of taking advantage of his position to seduce a young women that was never going to be his wife. Condit was and is a first class dirt bag.

“That said, it does not mean Condit was not complicit in the murder.”

Condit was thoroughly investigated. After some initial reluctance, he fully cooperated with law enforcement. No evidence has ever linked Condit to her disappearance or murder. The mistaken focus on Condit may have contributed to the delay in apprehending the real murderer.

Chandra was a willing partner in the affair. She knew he was married. I believe that she was 24 at the time of the affair so she was not just fresh out of high school. I do not approve of the affair but thousands of Americans have affairs every year. Condit was a serial philander. Chandra was not his only affair during the time.

An affair is not a crime. He did not deserve accusations of murder. He was unlucky in that suspicion would naturally fall on him. Sometimes life is not fair. Affairs can lead to associated fallouts in life.

You’re a so-called professor? Never said he was complicit or that he committed a crime.

Funny, though, if he had not gotten involved with this woman he would never have come under suspicion. Isn’t that so? The fact is, he used his elected position, a position of power, to have irresponsible sex with a young woman he never intended to marry. Corporations and civil service have sanctions for that kind of behavior.

Now you can wriggle and spin until hell freeezes over but it doesn’t change the bottom line: Condit, and people like him, are societal slugs. Oh, and if the shoe fits wear it.

” it does not mean Condit was not complicit in the murder.”

Your statement implies that he was somehow involved.

I am not sure that he used his position of power. I do not think there is any evidence that he provided a job or special favors for Chandra. She was probably attracted to his position.

I am not condoning his behavior. Affairs are destructive behavior. I admit that he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. However, if the DC police had performed a competent investigation, resources would not have been wasted on Condit.

Another example of the corruption of the American criminal justice system!

How can any jury convict a man - even a man with a serious criminal record - of a murder with no physical or forensic evidence to link him to the crime, nor anyone able to place him at or near the supposed location of the crime at the time it occurred?

Indique had been a suspect questioned by DC Police months after Levy's disappearance and released at the time for lack of evidence.

Very convenient for DC authorities to put the rap on one local lowlife like Indique for an alleged random street crime, rather than fully explore the possibility of a goon or goons hired by Condit, perhaps coming into DC from out of town, to do the dirty work.

That comment brings back memories of our weekly FReeps down on the corner near Condit's office.

As I recall, you hollered that into the open bus doors when it stopped on the corner to drop off or pick up passengers.

That's how I'll always remember my Congressman - a dirtbag.

“I am not buying the result.”

Do you know anything about the evidence against the convicted murderer? Do you know anything about the lack of evidence against Condit? Please educate yourself about the facts before making uninformed statments. The evidence against the convicted murderer looked compelling to me. I have not seen any evidence that connects Condit to her disappearance or murder. Condit was thoroughly investigated during the months following her disappearance. Despite the illegal’s attacks in similar places around the same time as Chandra’s disappearance, the police did not connect the dots until several years later.

The evidence includes statements that Guandique made to a cellmate, statements that he made to police, and evidence linking him to assaults in the same area. Guandique admitted that he had seen Levy in the park. He admitted that he assaulted women in the same area of the park. I also believe his girl friend at the time had evidence although I am not sure if it was presented.

Juries tend to be swayed by self incriminating statements. Although physical evidence would have been useful, I find the circumstantial evidence compelling.

Guandique very well may have killed her, based on his previous attacks on other women in the park.

But they certainly didn’t prove he did it beyond reasonable doubt.

What the hell was that jury thinking?

Remember at first it was the lily-white guy Gary Conduit’s fault. Ooops. I guess not. Illegal alien Ingmar Guandique has been found guilty on two charges of first degree murder for the 2001 brutal killing of Chandra Levy. Lets take a look at CBS’s “summary” of the story:

Guandique, a Salvadoran immigrant, was accused of killing Levy in 2001 while she exercised in Washington’s Rock Creek Park. Her remains were found in the park roughly a year after she went missing. Levy’s disappearance made headlines when she was romantically linked to Condit, then a congressman representing central California as a Democrat, but police no longer think he was involved.

Notice a couple of things here. Because Conduit was at first blamed for the crime, then found to have nothing to do with it, they actually mention his party affiliation. Yet, when Democrats are found guilty of crimes, they conveniently leave out the party affiliation. Notice one other thing. CBS calls Guandique merely a “Salvadoran immigrant.” What’s the important word they leave out? ILLEGAL, as in illegal immigrant. But facts don’t matter to the media like CBS.
