NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Thirty years ago this month, a murder in Central Park shocked the city and it was soon the headline on tabloids across the country.
In August 1986, a bicyclist found 18-year-old Jennifer Levin’s body, bruised and half-naked in the park. She’d been strangled to death.
Robert Chambers was charged with murder, pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter, and served 15 years in prison.
When he was released, Chambers gave his only interview to Troy Roberts of “48 Hours.”
“48 Hours” takes a look back “The Preppy Killer” case this weekend.
