"Reyes did tell her mother what turned out to be true: "'I'm afraid someone is going to murder me".
A week-long search ended with a grisly discovery on the side of a highway in Greenwich, Connecticut last Tuesday.
According to court documents, she was barefoot, bound at the feet and knees and her hands were bound behind her back with packing tape and white twine. The official cause of her death has not yet been revealed. One wrote on Twitter: "He's looking so f***ing (suspicious)".
Sources identified the suspect as Javier da Silva, of Queens, New York, according to CBSNew York.
"I asked her, 'Why do you feel this way? It was the guy before me".
A person was arrested in NY after fraudulently using Valerie Reyes' ATM card, according to Greenwich police.
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.
According to The Journal, Reyes had taken her iPad, iPhone, clothes and bed sheets with her when she disappeared. "The only thing that's weird is she was frightened for her life, and then somebody ends up taking her life".
Reyes' mother said that Reyes supported da Silva while his mother was dying of cancer. Those items included an iPhone, an iPad, her wallet, several items of clothing and bedsheets.
Captain Berry said: "This entire investigation has been a herculean effort from the very beginning, from the initial officers on scene to all the work of all the detectives chasing down numerous leads".
The newspaper reports she was spotted by CCTV cameras at an ATM in Manhattan at 2am last Wednesday.
Capt. Robert Berry says investigators "zeroed in" on DeSilva after he allegedly used Reyes' ATM card to withdraw cash multiple times after her death. A review of footage from a City of New Rochelle pole camera located in the area of the bank showed a black Honda CR-V pulled up toward the bank, parked across the street and a male exited the vehicle wearing a black hooded sweatshirt over his head, dark trousers and black sneakers with white soles.
Reyes' father issued a statement after her body was found. "I hope that this arrest will bring some degree of closure to the family of Valerie Reyes". Greenwich police said in a statement.
After she vanished, her family hired a private investigator to look for her.
CrimeOnline spoke withJustin Orda, who as identified as Reyes' most recent boyfriend.
