A private investigator tracked her to New York City and an ATM machine, she was not seen again until discovered by public works employees.

Valerie Reyes, 24, was stuffed in a suitcase which was abandoned last week.

In their last conversation with each other, Sanchez said that Reyes told her she had feared for her life and that she thought someone was going to murder her.

The ex-boyfriend of a missing New Rochelle woman found dead in a suitcase in CT has been arrested and is likely connected to her death, police said Tuesday.

Prosecutors said that Da Silva, reportedly Reyes' ex-boyfriend, bound her by her legs and hands, put packing tape over her mouth, put her in a suitcase, and drove to Greenwich where he dumped her body.

"This same suspect was interviewed jointly by Greenwich and New Rochelle detectives and admitted a role in the death of Valerie Reyes", Berry added.

Greenwich police Tuesday identified the suspect in the killing of Valerie Reyes as Javier DeSilva, who was arrested in Queens, N.Y. He was the victim's ex-boyfriend and was arrested in Queens.

"Multiple crime scenes had been examined, hundreds of hours of surveillance footage had been reviewed, and numerous interviews of potential witnesses had been conducted", Berry said.

According to Reyes' mother, her daughter became paranoid and spoke to her about her fears on January 28, the night before she vanished. Then on February 5, a red suitcase in the Town of Greenwich was found by a public works employee who, on unzipping the suitcase, discovered the body of Reyes inside. Greenwich police said in a statement.

"M$3 y daughter started getting really frustrated with him, and it ended quick", she told CBS New York's Tony Aiello.

Reyes, a Barnes & Noble store clerk, had broken up with her boyfriend five days earlier, according to Sanchez.

Autopsy results are still pending, say police.

Family and friends will remember Reyes from 2 to 4 p.m. and from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12, at Lloyd Maxcy & Sons Beauchamp Chapel, 16 Shea Place, in New Rochelle.

Said Sanchez: "We wonder, 'Who made her feel this way?'"

"At this unimaginably hard time, we are asking for love, support and respect to our family for the loss of my handsome daughter Valerie Reyes who is now resting in heaven", he said. Was there someone at your house?' I asked about her ex-boyfriend.
