Like I said, it is a bit of a mystery, at least until her boyfriend is found, but it is getting an awful lot of press. As I wrote the other day, things are awfully quiet these days and that bodes ill.
I don't know why but it reminds me a lot of the Chandra Levy case. Ms. Levy was an intern in D.C. who disappeared in May of 2001. During the initial investigation it was discovered that Ms. Levy was having an affair with married Democrat Congressman from California, the sleazy Gary Condit, something he still denies to this day. Ms. Levy's remains and her clothing were found a year later. The details of that are not important right now but what is bugging me is that this case seems similar, a missing young woman that is getting an inordinate amount of news coverage.
The search for Chandra Levy was on the news all the time and I recall fairly clearly seeing story after story about it on Fox News, right up until the first reports came in of a plane hitting the World Trade Center.
I am certainly not drawing parallels between the events or trying to make some sort of connection but rather that the news cycles then and now seem eerily similar. There wasn't much else going on so the media was fixated on the case of Chandra Levy just to have something to talk about and then something very big happened. Maybe it is just deja vu but I am getting that weird feeling that we might be in a dull news cycle but maybe not for long.
Maybe I am just paranoid or something. Maybe not.
