  • Ex-boyfriend of suitcase murder victim busted after video catches him using dead woman's ATM card — cops

Police have arrested the ex-boyfriend of the 24-year-old woman whose murdered body was found stuffed in a suitcase on the side of a quiet CT road, with her hands and feet bound.

According to prosecutors for the United States Attorney's Office in the Southern District of NY, 24-year-old Queens, N.Y., resident Javier Da Silva was arrested and charged with one count of kidnapping, "resulting in the death of Valerie Reyes".

Federal authorities said Da Silva Rojas told authorities in a videotaped interview at the New Rochelle Police Department that Reyes fell to the floor and hit her head after they had sex on January 29 at her residence.

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

Detectives from her hometown, accompanied by detectives from the town where she was found, arrested a "suspect in NY who had fraudulently used the ATM card of victim Valerie Reyes", they said in an official statement.

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 arrested person "is also believed to be involved in the death of Valerie", Greenwich police said.

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

CBS New York reports that the suspect is originally from Venezuela but had remained in the USA illegally since the expiration of his visa.

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

Said Sanchez: "We wonder, 'Who made her feel this way?'" I'm paranoid, mommy. I'm getting anxiety attacks, She was having a hard time talking'.

Reyes, who worked at a Barnes & Noble in Eastchester, N.Y., planned to train to become a tattoo artist and liked to sing.

"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.

Several items were missing from Reyes' apartment, police said.

"I asked about her ex-boyfriend".

The Connecticut Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has yet to release the autopsy results to rule the cause of death.

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

Her family told police she had dated someone named "Javier" but they broke up about a year ago, according to court documents.

"My daughter was a good soul", she said.

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