A Rough Week For The Levys

1 minute read

There was a flurry of media excitement last week when a tip suggested Chandra Levy’s body was buried in Fort Lee, Va. The lead turned out to be bogus. For Chandra’s mother Susan, it was an especially hard episode. “I’m not holding up very well,” she tells TIME. “It’s been a very rough week.” Levy says both she and her husband Robert take sleeping pills and tranquilizers at night. “I’m often sick to my stomach. It’s sheer terror.” Still, Levy won’t call for Gary Condit to quit. “Let the people decide for themselves.” But she does take a shot at California Governor Gray Davis, noting that he hasn’t called the family, whereas the state’s two Senators have.
