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

A week after Valerie Reyes's twisted body was found inside an orange suitcase on the side of a United States highway, police believe they have her killer.

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

Her body was found stuffed in a suitcase and bound hand and foot.

According to the Westchester Journal News, police discovered that da Silva used Reyes' ATM card in NY.

'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, ' the police statement said.

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.

He's charged with committing a "gruesome kidnapping" that resulted in the death of 24-year-old Valerie Reyes, U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said in a statement.

"She was going on about how frightened she was in that apartment", Sanchez said on Thursday, the Times reports.

Police say they have examined hundreds of hours of surveillance footage in the case and interviewed several potential witnesses. "I'm paranoid, mommy. I'm getting anxiety attacks.' She was having a hard time talking".

Reyes' mother, Norma Sanchez, told WABC-TV last week that her daughter had broken up with her boyfriend days before she disappeared. 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.

Captain Berry said: "This entire investigation has been a herculean effort from the very beginning, from the initial officers on scene to all the work of all the detectives chasing down numerous leads".

Reyes had worked at a Barnes & Noble store in Eastchester, New York, since it opened 2 ½ years ago, according to the bookstore chain. Was there someone at your house?' I asked about her ex-boyfriend. "I just feel so blessed, overwhelmed". He said Reyes wasn't afraid of da Silva.

The chief medical examiner's office has completed an autopsy but has not yet released the cause and manner of Reyes' death. "And she said, 'No, '" Sanchez said.

A wake for Reyes is scheduled for this afternoon and evening at the Lloyd Maxie and Sons Funeral Home in New Rochelle.
