Suspect in custody in murder of New Rochelle woman

Valerie Reyes 24 of New Rochelle New York

Based on all of the above evidence, investigators brought Da Silva in for an interview at the New Rochelle Police Department where he waived his Miranda rights and told his story, adding that once he placed her inside the vehicle, he drove for some time before placing the suitcase in the forest, where it was later found by Greenwich public works employees who unzipped it and found Reyes inside, the complaint said.

Javier Enrique Da Silva Rojas was detained Tuesday in the death of Valerie Reyes after a federal court appearance in White Plains, 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. Officials said her hands and feet were bound when her body was found by highway workers. I kept praying that she would tell me, she would give me hints, a name or something ...

"She said, "Mami, his mother has cancer and I want to support him.' She was an angel like that", Reyes" mother, Norma Sanchez said. '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". "I'm paranoid, mummy. I'm getting anxiety attacks.' She was having a hard time talking".

Da Silva, 24, is a resident of Queens, New York.

Connecticut-based news journalist John Craven reported Da Silva admitted to his role in Reyes' death, telling investigators the pair had sex before "she fell to the floor and hit her head".

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

2018 was 4th warmest, but next 5 years could break records
Nasa's data was compiled by 6,300 weather stations around the world and was compared against information stretching back to 1880. The report stated that much of the warming can be attributed to an increase in carbon emissions from human activity.

During that call, Reyes was "very scared", Sanchez said, the Journal News reports.

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

When found, the complaint said Reyes was barefoot with an unbuttoned shirt and denim jeans. The New Rochelle, New York, woman's remains were found February 5 in a wooded section of Greenwich.

The chief medical examiner's office has completed an autopsy but has not yet released the cause and manner of Reyes' death.

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

Greenwich Police Captain Robert Berry issued a statement last week relaying the community's "heartfelt condolences".
