Chandra’s Death Re-Ignites Curiosity

The discovery of Chandra Levy's remains in Washington, D.C. last month and the recent ruling that her death was a homicide have re-ignited the media frenzy surrounding her
disappearance last summer. The story, which is preempting coverage of major news like the War on Terror and violence in the Middle East, so far has not prompted the voracious
media attention on Gary Condit that it did when the story of Levy's disappearance - and her affair with the then-congressman - first broke. Attorneys for the Levy family and
Condit are serving as key spokespeople so far; last summer PR consultants from Porter Novelli and Marina Ein kept the story in the limelight. Qorvis Communications (whose client
roster has included Monica Lewinsky) is also handling media inquiries for the Levy family. Condit's attorney has promised to "reach out" to the Levys' attorney to see if there is
anything Condit and his camp can do to help. (Judy Smith, Qorvis, 202/496-1000)
