I accidentally posted the above-mentioned link on this thread. It was meant for the Levy-Palfrey thread, instead. Since Rod Wheeler was very close to the Levy investigation and made a comment on Foxnews a while back about the possible connection of the Levy murderer to the Palfrey client list, I thought it would be interesting to know what his feelings are about the Palfrey suicide. I also would be very interested to know if he found confirmation of Levy-murderer connection theroy in her phone records.

That is very interesting, goz. The Cold Case Investigative Research Institute story on CNN is what sparked that, but I had no idea that it generated that much interest.

That's some results from the cold case investigation already.

PostPosted: Tue Jul 08, 2008 2:27 am    Post subject: Anderson Cooper Story on Chandra and Jonbenet Reply with quote

Aired March 16, 2006 on CNN
Anderson Cooper 360

COOPER: Well, coming up, they are two of most covered murder cases ever.

JonBenet Ramsey, the child beauty queen who was killed nearly a decade ago, if you can

imagine. Are police any closer to solving the crime? We're going to look at that.

And Chandra Levy, the former Washington intern. Her body found in a park.

Tonight, a look at both unsolved murders, when 360 continues.


COOPER: Well, here in New York, the murder of a graduate student, named Imette St. Guillen,

has attracted worldwide attention.

Police arrested a bouncer in connection with the crime, and a grand jury may hand up

indictments as early as tomorrow.

In recent years, on average, about 16,000 Americans were murdered. And according to the

FBI, more than 35 percent of those murders go unsolved -- 35 percent. Nearly all of them go

unnoticed by the media. But a few stand out, of course.

And tonight we're going to take a look at two murder mysteries that all of us will

remember. We're also going to update you on where the investigations stand now.

We begin in Boulder, Colorado, and the case of JonBenet Ramsey.


JONBENET RAMSEY: I want to be a cowboy's sweetheart.

COOPER (voice-over): They are images frozen in time. A child beauty queen, 6 years old,

performing on a stage. We know her name, but we never knew her -- not in life, that is.

On the day after Christmas 1996, the body of JonBenet Ramsey was found in the basement of

her family's home in Boulder, Colorado. The killer beat her, strangled her and left a

handwritten ransom note. It was the city's only murder of the year.

The killing of JonBenet Ramsey instantly became the focus of the nation. JonBenet's

parents, John and Patsy Ramsey, said an intruder murdered their daughter. And in an

interview with CNN, urged parents to be careful. PATSY RAMSEY, MOTHER OF JONBENET: If I

were a resident of Boulder, I would tell my friends to keep -- keep your babies close to

you. There's someone out there.

COOPER: But the police and much of the media were turning their attention back to the


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They do remain under an umbrella of suspicion, but we're not ready to

name any suspects.

COOPER: Even after a grand jury failed to indict the Ramseys, to many they remained objects

of suspicion.

In 2000, on "LARRY KING LIVE," Steve Thomas, former Boulder police detective, confronted

John and Patsy about the murder.

STEVE THOMAS, FORMER BOULDER POLICE DETECTIVE: I felt that Patsy was involved in this

death, in this tragedy. And I felt it had become such a debunkle and was going nowhere. Out

of frustration, I left the case and police work.

LARRY KING, HOST, LARRY KING LIVE: John, why did you agree to come on with Steve tonight? I

mean this is rather historic. I'm trying to remember if there's ever been television like


JOHN RAMSEY: This man, as a police officer, has called my wife a murderer. He has called me

a complicity to murder. He has call immediate a liar. He has slandered my relationship with

my daughter, Patsy's relationship with JonBenet.

COOPER: Thomas wrote a book, claiming the Ramseys were involved in their child's murder. In

2001, the Ramseys sued, and a year later settled out of court.

About the same time, John and Patsy wrote a book, telling their side the story, that a

predator hid in the house and after attempting to kidnap JonBenet, murdered her.

Then in 2003, the Boulder police ended its investigation and handed it over to the D.A.'s

office. The district attorney vowed to reopen the case, but refused to eliminate the

Ramseys as possible suspects.

Just a month later, however, the D.A. changed her mind. A judge ruled in a civil case that

an intruder most likely killed JonBenet, and the prosecutor agreed. Finally lifting the

cloud of suspicious over the parents.

Tonight, nearly a decade after the crime, where does the investigation stand? This week, we

called the Boulder County D.A.'s Office for an update.

In a statement, the chief investigator told us, "The JonBenet Ramsey case is still open. We

are still receiving phone calls, e- mails and letters and evaluating all tips that come

in." As for John and Patsy Ramsey, originally from Georgia, they now live in Michigan, but

recently returned to Boulder, where "The Rocky Mountain News Post" reports they met with

the D.A. They continue to believe DNA evidence will one day bring the killer to justice.

And JonBenet Ramsey, she rests in peace in a Georgia cemetery. If she were alive today, she

would be 15 years old.


COOPER (on camera): So strange to think of that, her as 15.

From the unsolved murder of JonBenet Ramsey, to the haunting case of this young woman. Do

you remember Chandra Levy of Washington? Her killer has not been found either.

And we'll talk to a noted criminologist about why so many murders go unsolved, even in this

age of DNA evidence and crime lab working, when 360 continues.


COOPER: We continue our look now at unsolved murders. There was a time a few years ago,

when the name Chandra Levy was on everyone's list. Now some of you probably need to be

reminded who she was and what happened to her.

CNN's Joe Johns reports.


JOE JOHNS, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): She was a driven, bright-eyed 24-year-old

intern, one of thousands who flocked to Washington when semesters change. A little dazzled

by the power of this place. A little giddy with her own sense of possibility. Chandra Levy

came here in September of 2000, interning at the Federal Department of Prisons, dreaming of

a job with the FBI.

When spring arrived, she packed her suitcase for a trip back home to Modesto, California.

She never got on the plane.

On May 1st, 2001, Chandra Levy disappeared into thin air.

ROBERT LEVY, CHANDRA LEVY'S FATHER: My precious daughter. I just want her back. I just want

her back alive.

JOHNS: For days the story of the missing intern was buried in the local paper. Another lost

soul in the big city. But behind the headlines, Washington was whispering. Chandra Levy had

a secret -- Gary Condit, the congressman representing Chandra's hometown of Modesto,


According to Levy's relatives, the 53-year-old married lawmaker and the 24-year-old intern

were having an illicit affair. Chandra, relatives claimed, had said so herself.


JOHNS: Robert and Susan Levy were desperate to find their daughter, setting up a website

for tips, begging the congressman for information.

S. LEVY: I don't feel that he's been very truthful to me.

JOHNS: The public agreed. By August, polls showed more than two-thirds of the country

believed Gary Condit was at least somewhat involved in Chandra Levy's disappearance.

Under questioning, police say Condit admitted to the affair, but that's all.

CHIEF CHARLES RAMSEY, WASHINGTON, D.C., POLICE: We have nothing at this time to connect him

with the disappearance of Chandra Levy.

JOHNS: In public, Condit insisted that he and Levy were nothing more than good friends.

GARY CONDIT, FORMER CONGRESSMAN: I had nothing to do with her disappearance.

JOHNS: And then summer ended. September 11th wiped Chandra Levy's story from the headlines

until spring returned and a man hunting for turtles in Washington's Rock Creek Park, came

across some bones.

RAMSEY: We do not know the identity of the person that we found.

JOHNS: Private Investigators Dwayne Stanton and Joe McCann (ph), both former homicide

detectives, were hired by the Levys to help find their daughter.

DWAYNE STANTON, PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR: And they're sitting by the phone, waiting to hear

something one way or the other.

JOHNS: When the news came, it was the worst.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Remains recovered last week in Rock Creek Park were positively

identified by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner as those of Chandra Ann Levy.

JOHNS: Today, Stanton and McCann took me back to the place where Chandra Levy's body was


JOE MCCANN (ph), PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR: A lot that happened that day is still a mystery.

Otherwise, we would know how she got here. And who brought her here.

JOHNS: For all we know about Chandra Levy, we know next to nothing about how she died. The

last time she was seen was at the gym, canceling her membership the day before her

disappearance. After that, nothing.

There have never been official suspects in the case. For a time, police were questioning

this man, Ingmar Guandeque, convicted of attacking two women in the park within weeks of

Levy's disappearance. He denied involvement in Chandra's murder.

MCCANN: You know, it's coming up on five years. That's a long time...

STANTON: It's a long time.

MCCANN: ... for a case. You always hear people say that, you know, you try to close a

murder case in the first 24 hours. We're talking five years.

JOHNS: You think this thing's ever going to be solved?

STANTON: Somebody knows. Someone has some information that can bring this case to a

closure. And just like we always said, if that person would step forward and share that

information, I think this case would be closed.

JOHNS: Until then, the death of Chandra Levy will remain yet another Washington mystery.

Joe Johns, CNN, Washington.


COOPER: Well, DNA, CSI, every high-tech tool imaginable, and still one out of three killers

is getting away with murder.

We'll tell you why, but first Erica Hill, from "HEADLINE NEWS," joins us with some of the

business stories we're following -- Erica.
