An estimated 2,000 people are expected to gather at 11 a.m. (Pacific time) Tuesday at the Modesto, Calif., Centre Plaza meeting hall for a memorial for former federal intern Chandra Levy, reports Reuters and West Coast radio station KCBS. The service will take place as investigators continue searching for clues that could explain how Levy, 24, met her death. She had been missing for 13 months in a case that captured the nation's attention and brought down California Rep. Gary Condit, 54. (Police sources told PEOPLE last year that Condit acknowledged he had an affair with Levy, and, in August, in his first magazine interview since her disappearance, he told PEOPLE that he and Levy were "friends.") Levy's scattered remains were found last week in a Washington, D.C.-area park. The service will include music from the Modesto Orchestra and addresses by Rabbi Paul Gordon, from Chandra's parents' synagogue, and by Modesto Mayor Carmen Sabatino, who told KCBS: "This community has been involved with the Levy family many, many years (and through) this period of anxiety . . . and now that Chandra Levy has been discovered, this hope has turned to reality, and I think the community mourns as a whole." The station also reports that D.C. medical examiner Dr. Jonathan Arden said that on Tuesday he expects to announce the cause and manner of Levy's death.
