The 24-year-old was found in a suitcase last week on the Port Chester/Connecticut border. He then covered her mouth with tape and bound her arms and legs and put her in the suitcase, which he put in the trunk of his auto. She just said, 'I'm scared.
Police say a suspect was arrested in the slaying of a woman who was found dead in a suitcase in Greenwich, an affluent community in CT. "I'm paranoid, mommy. I'm getting anxiety attacks'".
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 suspect was arrested in NY by New Rochelle police detectives. She had been missing since January 29.
The United States Attorney for the Southern District of NY is handling the case. When Sanchez asked Reyes if someone had threatened her - and asked about her ex - Reyes said "no", Sanchez told WABC.
The arrested person "is also believed to be involved in the death of Valerie", Greenwich police said.
Javier DeSilva, from NY, was taken into custody on Monday (local time) over the gruesome slaying of Valerie Reyes, whosebody was dumped in wooded part of CT.
"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. Officials said her hands and feet were bound when her body was found by highway workers on February 5.
Valerie's mother Norma last week told reporters she could not move past the conversation she had with her daughter the night before she went missing.
Sanchez said that she tried to pinpoint the source of her daughter's anxiety but failed.
Reyes had worked at a Barnes & Noble store in Eastchester, N.Y., since it opened 2 1/2 years ago, according to the bookstore chain.
Autopsy results on Reyes are still pending, noted CBS.
A service is scheduled for Tuesday night in New Rochelle.
"I asked her, 'Why do you feel this way?" I kept praying that she would tell me, she would give me hints, a name or something ... "She didn't mention no one specific", Sanchez said.
