Why? Valerie Reyes ex boyfriend arrested with body in suitcase murder

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

Police in New Rochelle, NY have announced that Valerie Reyes' ex-boyfriend Javier da Silva has been arrested in connection with her death.

A man named Javier da Silva, of Flushing, Queens, reportedly has confessed to the murder of a young Westchester County, New York, woman named Valerie Reyes, who was 24, according to reports on Tuesday.

The arrest of da Silva may not come as a surprise to law enforcement experts who have predicted that Reyes' killer was known to her.

Reyes' body was found stuffed in a suitcase in a wooded area of Greenwich on February 5.

"We are confident that the pursuit of justice for Valerie will be successful and we continue to work with the family to provide closure to this tragedy".

In a press conference on Tuesday Greenwich Police said that de Silva confessed to playing a role in the murder when he was questioned following his arrest.

The investigation into Reyes" death is ongoing as Capt. Berry said "there's a lot of loose ends that need to be tied up' during the conference.

CBS New York reports that the suspect is originally from Venezuela but had remained in the USA illegally since the expiration of his visa. When Sanchez asked Reyes if someone had threatened her - and asked about her ex - Reyes said "no", Sanchez told WABC.

Authorities said Da Silva used Reye's debit card to withdraw about $1,000 from a bank in New Rochelle on the morning she went missing, according to court documents.

"I asked her, 'Why do you feel this way?"

The aspiring tattoo artist disappeared one day after telling her mum that "somebody is going to murder me". "I'm paranoid, mommy. I'm getting anxiety attacks.' She was having a hard time talking".

Reyes had worked at a Barnes & Noble store in Eastchester, New York, since it opened 2 ½ years ago, according to the bookstore chain.

When found, the complaint said Reyes was barefoot with an unbuttoned shirt and denim jeans.

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.

Autopsy results from the Connecticut Office of the Chief Medical Examiner are still pending. DeSilva is a native of Venezuela and "has been in the country illegally since overstaying his visa", CBS New York reported, citing sources.

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