Man Arrested in Kidnapping Death of NY Woman

Valerie Reyes 24 of New Rochelle was identified as the body found in a suitcase in Greenwich Conn. police said

Robert Berry, the arrested man Javier Da Silva, 24, "admitted a role" in Reyes' death.

Reyes was reported missing January 30 to the New Rochelle Police Department by her family, according to court documents. During a joint investigation following discovery of her body, police identified a possible suspect and on Monday, February 11, he was located at his residence.

Valerie Reyes' body was found last week in a big red suitcase, bound at the hands and feet, by highway workers in a wooded area of Greenwich, Connecticut, about 10 miles from New Rochelle, where she lived. "I'm paranoid, mommy. I'm getting anxiety attacks.' She was having a hard time talking".

Greenwich Police are asking the public for any information they may possess concerning Valerie and/or her disappearance.

Valerie Reyes was found dead inside a suitcase.

The aspiring tattoo artist disappeared one day after telling her mum that "somebody is going to murder me".

Police arrested Javier de Silva, of Queens, New York, on Tuesday.

Da Silva - who, according to CBS 2-NY was living in the U.S. illegally after overstaying a visa - was held without bail at the brief appearance. She said that Reyes feared that she would be murdered but didn't say by whom.

Sanchez says she desperately tried to pry for more information, but her daughter refused to specify why she felt that way. Was there someone at your house?' I asked about her ex-boyfriend.

During that call, Reyes was "very scared", Sanchez said, the Journal News reports.

She asked about her daughter's ex-boyfriend but still Reyes told her mother "no, it wasn't him".

Vernon Geberth, a retired NYPD lieutenant-commander, told the Greenwich Time that he believes the boyfriend crossed state lines, that the suitcase killing was 'interpersonal, ' and suggested Reyes knew her killer and that the killing did not appear to be the work of a serial killer.

The 24-year-old from New Rochelle will be laid to rest today.

Police said tips have been pouring in with leads in her horrific and sudden slaying.

Autopsy results are pending in the case while a funeral for her has been scheduled for Wednesday, with a viewing on Tuesday.
