In 2002, the nation was gripped in the murder of Chandra Levy. The main suspect, former California Congressman Gary Condit, is breaking his silence after 15 years.
At the time, he was a married Democrat who had an affair with Levy. Her remains were found in a park in Washington D.C. in 2002, and although he's always maintained his innocence, many blamed him for being behind her unsolved crime. “As I would walk through the airport, people would walk up to me and ask, ‘Where did you hide the body?’ or yell across the room at me ‘Murderer!’” Condit says in a clip on Dr. Phil.
Condit is plugging his new book, “Actual Malice: A True Crime Political Thriller,” in which he calls the case a “bad investigation” and “ soap opera.” He explains, "It went wrong in every way you can conceive." He even accuses the police of setting him up. “These guys were going to set me up. They were going to frame me for something. There was something going on that was beyond my control, and it was moving pretty fast.”
