Police appear to have landed a very significant break:

The parents of slain intern Chandra Levy said this morning that D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier told them late Friday night that an arrest warrant in the eight-year old unsolved murder case is “imminent in the next couple of days.”

Susan Levy, Chandra’s mother, in an interview with The Washington Post today said that she was told that police made a breakthrough in the case.

Levy said Lanier told her “in all her 19 years of police work this is really big, ‘We really came down with a break.’ They’re very proud.”

The Los Angeles Times has put together a timeline of the eight year old case and, not surprisingly, Rep. Gary A. Condit’s name is all over it but unnamed officials are pointing to another suspect:

Police have interviewed and are close to charging a California prison inmate in the eight-year-old case of Chandra Levy, the federal intern who vanished and was found murdered a year later, a law enforcement official told FOX News on Saturday.

The official said Washington, D.C., authorities submitted evidence to the U.S. Attorney’s Office to obtain an arrest warrant for Ingmar Guandique, a Salvadoran immigrant who will be served papers in California and likely will be flown to Washington to hear the charges against him.
