The Washington Post is running a series of articles on the 2001 disappearance and murder of D.C. intern Chandra Levy. From the series introduction:
|The murder of Chandra Levy remains Washington's most famous unsolved crime. Many people, including police and prosecutors, suspected that a congressman was responsible. But a year-long Washington Post investigation reveals new information showing that critical leads were ignored and the killer may never be brought to justice.|
Some of the mistakes reported to have been made include an incomplete initial search of Rock Creek Park, and a preliminary search of Levy's computer by a police officer (who was not a computer forensics expert) which delayed the reconstruction of its Internet history. The series is fascinating, especially for those interested in the Levy case, and it has a lot of forensic-related content.
