More than a year after her disappearance, on May 22, 2002, the Washington, D.C. Medical Examiner's office confirmed that the remains found in Rock Creek Park were indeed the remains of Chandra Ann Levy.
A man and his dog were hunting for turtles in the park when the dog was drawn to a scent and uncovered a skull.
Further discovery in the same area uncovered more bones and personal belongings.
Chandra's body was found in an area D.C. Police searched when initially looking for her.
The park encompasses more than 2,800 acres, and police recruits were said to have searched at least 1,700 of those acres.
D.C. Police conducted an archeological dig in the area to try and uncover clues as to who would do this to a young, talented and beautiful woman.
Investigators say her body was not placed in a grave, but on top of the soil, and eventually covered by brush and leaves. The bones were said to have no tissue or hair on them, and animals took a good portion of what was left behind.
The area is not far from Broad Branch Road in Rock Creek Park.
