Man Arrested in Kidnapping Death of NY Woman

Valerie Reyes

Police on Tuesday reportedly arrested a man who previously dated Valerie Reyes, the woman whose body - bound at the hands and feet - was discovered last week stuffed into a large red suitcase dumped on a roadside in an affluent CT town.

"The arrest of Javier Da Silva is a result of the outstanding work and cooperation between members of the New Rochelle Police Department, the Greenwich Police Department, and the F.B.I".

Reyes was found dead on February 5 inside a suitcase along a Greenwich, Connecticut, road with her hands and feet bound.

Captain Robert Berry says investigators "zeroed in" on suspect Javier DeSilva after he allegedly used victim Valerie Reyes's ATM card to withdraw cash multiple times after her death.

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.

"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", Greenwich police Capt. Robert Berry said in a written statement.

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

Greenwich sits along the New York-Connecticut state border.

Her most recent ex wrote on Twitter: "It wasn't me".

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

Her ex-boyfriend had just moved out, the Journal News reported. It's 10 miles away from the NY border of her Westchester County home.

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

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. "And she said, "No", Norma said, referring to her daughter's former partner who it's believed she separated from on January 24. "And she said, 'No, '" Sanchez said.

Family and friends are preparing to say their final goodbyes to Valerie Reyes this morning.

On Tuesday, DeSilva appeared before a federal magistrate in White Plains who ordered him held without bail, ABC News reports.
