The Basement Tapes

After serving 15 years for the somewhat sensational 1986 sex murder in Central Park of Jennifer Levin, Robert Chambers is in the news again. The so-called Preppie Killer was released from prison in 2004 and arrested two days ago with his girlfriend Shawn Kovell for selling mounds of cocaine to undercover agents. He could go back to prison for life. (See previous post) Word of Chambers’ new arrest reminded one of our staffers that, down in the bowels of our treasure-filled basement, we had footage of the controversial home movie made in Chambers’ apartment back in ’86 while he was awaiting trial, which showed him entertaining a giddy group of girls by reenacting the choking of Levin. The footage – which was shown on A Current Affair with Maury Povich – was used in World of Wonder’s HBO series Shock Video in ’92. What’s shocking to us is that the girlfriend he has now is the girlfriend he had back then. She waited 15 years for him.
