Man Arrested in Kidnapping Death of NY Woman

Valerie Reyes 24 of New Rochelle New York was a good soul her mother said the Journal News reports

Greenwich police on Tuesday identified the suspect in the killing of Valerie Reyes as Javier DeSilva, who was arrested in Queens, New York.

It had been reported that Reyes broke up with her boyfriend on January 24, but Sanchez said she asked her daughter she was afraid of her ex that night and she said no. Reporters clarify that Reyes' most recent boyfriend has not been charged, but da Silva has also been identified as an ex-boyfriend.

The victim's body was found on February 5 inside a suitcase discarded near a CT road by highway workers. Officials said her hands and feet were bound when her body was found by highway workers.

"We are, of course, devastated for my daughter's death, but I'm just blessed beyond grateful that they found her murderer", Sanchez told CBS.

A source told the news outlet that Reyes was 'killed at her residence' and the ex-boyfriend allegedly confessed to the murder to investigators. "She just mentioned, 'I'm really, really scared. I hope that this arrest will bring some degree of closure to the family of Valerie Reyes". The person who had rented the vehicle on that same date was Da Silva, the complaint said. "I'm paranoid, mommy. I'm getting anxiety attacks.' She was having a hard time talking".

Javier Da Silva, of Queens, admitted during an interview with an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent that he did bound and put Reyes, a New Rochelle resident, in a suitcase and leave it in a wooded area, said a criminal complaint filed in White Plains Superior Court on Tuesday, Feb. 12.

A search of her home turned up a drawing by Reyes that matched the social media profile of Da Silva.

Since then, he has recorded more than 1,000 yards receiving in seven of his nine seasons in the league. Steelers president Art Rooney II said last month he wasn't sure why Brown had turned against the team.

Reyes, a 2012 graduate of New Rochelle High School, worked at Barnes & Noble in Eastchester.

Then she told her mom, "I feel like somebody's going to murder me", the Times reports.

Reyes lived alone in a basement apartment in New Rochelle and suffered at times from anxiety and depression, WABC reported. "Was there someone at your house?' Reyes" mother said.

Reyes was identified last week as the person whose body was found jammed into a piece of luggage abandoned in upscale Greenwich, Conn. Reyes' cause of death was not immediately clear. She said that her daughter feared that she would be murdered.

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

Correction: This story has been corrected to show that police in Greenwich announced the arrest but did not make it and to reflect the defendant's name as it is provided in court documents.
