Gary Condit's third interview with the cops brought him both shame and relief. After he spoke to them last Friday night, the news emerged that he had admitted to having a romance with Chandra Levy, the federal intern missing since April 30. But the police on Saturday declared that Condit had never been considered a suspect in her disappearance and was not one now; they also praised him for his cooperation. During the two previous interviews, FBI sources say, Condit was treated with kid gloves, even after agents learned that Levy had called the California Congressman five times from her cell phone in the two days before she vanished. Investigators have also determined that her running shoes were in her apartment, making it less likely she was attacked or killed while jogging in Washington's Rock Creek Park. So where is she?
