((The website, "WeTip.com", received the anonymous tip Tuesday night and faxed a copy to the District of Columbia police department. The website collects information on possible crimes ... and an employee at the company says the tip about the missing intern was "very detailed" ... three pages and single-spaced.
(SOT: Dave Eckert/wetips.com)

The anonymous tipster said the body of 24-year-old Chandra Levy was shrink-wrapped and buried under a parking lot that is under construction. It's on the Fort Lee military base in Petersburg, Virginia ... about 130-miles south of Washington, D-C. The information also described "how" the missing intern died.

Late Wednesday night, the FBI issued a statement saying: the Bureau is trying to determine the validity of the tip but has no plans to search in the Fort Lee area.

In Modesto, California, friends comforted the Levy parents. They have no comment on the report - it's just one of hundreds of unsubstantiated leads in a case that has baffled investigators since her disappearance on May first.

D-C police also caution that any follow-up on this tip is simply "routine". The FBI says that if the tip is deemed credible, appropriate measures will be taken to investigate. Teri Okita, CBS News, Washington.))
