15 Years Later: Chandra Levy's Parents Still Feel 'Tremendous Anger' Over Her Murder
15 years after Washington D.C. intern Chandra Levy went missing in Rock Creek Park, her parents are still reeling over the tragic loss.
Susan and Robert Levy sat down with the TODAY Show for the 15th anniversary of Chandra's disappearance, discussing the excruciating pain they feel to this very day.
"No matter what, we don't have our daughter back," Susan Levy said tearfully on Tuesday. "My husband has tremendous anger. I have tremendous sadness. The anger and sadness is really the same."
Since the tragedy, Susan has started painting as a hobby and form of release for her grief .
"Through moments of our very harsh pain, you transcend and you help others," she shared. "The work is a lot of pain and I'm open about the pain that I've endured."
During the cold case, it was also revealed that Chandra had been having an affair with married congressman U.S. Rep. Gary Condit. Though Condit denied the allegations, his career never fully recovered from the scandal.
Meanwhile, since his conviction, Guandique — who maintains his innocence — was granted a new trial, which is set to begin this October.
But Robert Levy believes Guandique to be guilty, through and through.
"As far as I can see, it's just some defense attorney trying to make themselves a name and make more money," he told TODAY of the trial. "He's guilty."
