The Chandra Levy case has taken a twist to Virginia.
The Richmond F-B-I office confirms this afternoon that a tip was called in to Washington Metropolitan Police.

The tip alleges that Levy's body is buried underneath a parking lot on the grounds of Fort Lee, near Petersburg.
The F-B-I says its agents, the Fort Lee Police, and the Chesterfield Police Department will begin a search tomorrow morning.
Police emphasize they've followed up on thousands of tips in the Levy case -- and the Fort Lee, Virginia connection may well be a false lead.

((At 27 Korey Stringer was just hitting his prime as a professional football player -- he could take on the best. But Stifling humidy and near triple digit temperatures were too much for the all-pro.
The Minnesota Vikings player died just hours after collapsing on the

practice field Tuesday. Doctors say his body temperature reached more than 108 degrees and his organs simply shut down.
For some of Stringer's teammates the news was overwhelming.
RANDY MOSS/VIKINGS PLAYER: "IT'S LIKE HE WAS HERE TODAY AND GONE TOMORROW." It was the cruelest of warnings about how dangerous these temperatures can be.
From Minnesota to Texas the nation's midsection is baking.

"IT IS HOT." With temperatures approaching 100 degrees in some places and the humidity making it feel as hot as 110...several states have issued excessive heat advisories and warnings.
The biggest concern---the elderly. Doctors say older people sometimes can't tell how hot it is.

DR. JOHN WILHELM/CHICAGO HEALTH DEPT. "I ALWAYS THINK OF THE GRANDMA ON THE VERY HOT DAY WHO IS STILL SITTING THERE WITH A SWEATER ON." Cooling stations have been set up for those without air conditioning as well as those who can't afford to use the ones they own.
COTT DAVIS/CHICAGO RESIDENT: "I DO HAVE ONE, BUT I AM NOT ABLE TO PAY THE BILL." Across the midwest and southwest pro and high school football players are trying to cope with the soaring temperatures.

In Minnesota --the Vikings are trying to cope with the death a young man cut down in his prime.

[WXPRO/FULL] WEATHER TODAY TOMORROW FORECAST WEATHERSCHOOL QUESTION

[SS=NONE]ROBIN TOSS BACK


Well, it sure was a wet start for today with light rain beginning at about midnight and not really letting up in many areas until sometime before the noon hour. Readings so far have been near two tenths of an inch in Danville, to over an inch of rain in Roanoke. Not too bad to help us out with that deficit we've been working on this year. As the radar shows us though, the weather is starting to quiet down as most of the showers head towards western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee. And it looks like we are in for a cool and cloudy night, BUT... fog may be a concern for those of you who are traveling tonight. As far as Thursday is concerned, how about some morning clouds but then some afternoon sun to dry us out a bit and warm those temperatures into the lower eighties... which is right on target for the start of August.
And now for today's weather school question... compared to 1990, some predict the average global temperature by two

thousand thirty will be what? It's somewhere between 1 and 2.4 degrees celsius, remember it's celsius.[Tease#1]
