LOS ANGELES – Former congressman Gary Condit is set to discuss the 2001 disappearance and death of Washington intern Chandra Levy on the “Dr. Phil” show.

Levy vanished 15 years ago, and her body was found the next year in Washington’s sprawling Rock Creek Park.

Condit had been romantically linked to Levy. He was at one time a prime suspect in her death but was later cleared by police. Another man, Ingmar Guandique, was convicted in Levy’s death in 2010. He won a new trial on appeal, and prosecutors announced they wouldn’t retry him.

Condit’s attorney says prosecutors have said the former Democratic congressman from California is neither a subject nor a target of the Levy investigation.

Condit’s appearance on “Dr. Phil” is set to air Thursday.
