A Salvadoran immigrant in prison for attacking two women joggers in the park where Chandra Levy's remains were found is named in an arrest warrant issued today in connection with her death. Investigators questioned Ingmar Guandique—now in federal prison in Adelanto, Calif.—in 2002 about Levy's slaying after he was convicted of attacking the women in Washington's Rock Creek Park. He was not charged at the time.

Levy was 24 and had just completed an internship with the US Bureau of Prisons when she disappeared in May 2001 after leaving her DC apartment. The Modesto, Calif., woman was wearing jogging clothes when she vanished, and a man walking his dog found her skull and bones in the park a year later. The warrant is the latest development in an investigation that had gone cold for years. (More Chandra Levy stories.)
