Where in the World Is Chandra Levy?
A detective puzzles through the possibilities.
If the Chandra Levy case is never solved, it probably won't ever be closed: With homicides and missing persons, cases are never closed without a resolution. This month in New York City, the father of Etan Patz, who disappeared in 1979 when he was 6 years old, asked a judge to declare his son legally dead in order to allow a wrongful death suit against the leading suspect. The judge agreed, but the case will still remain open for the NYPD.
