Arrest made in case of woman found dead in suitcase



GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) — Police in Greenwich, Connecticut, say they have made an arrest in the slaying of a 24-year-old woman whose body was found stuffed inside a suitcase.

The suspect is accused of using Valerie Reyes' ATM card. The New Rochelle, New York, woman's remains were found Feb. 5 in a wooded section of Greenwich.

Police said Tuesday they believe the suspect was involved in Reyes' death. The suspect's name was not immediately released.

Reyes had been reported missing on Jan. 30 when she did not show up for work at a bookstore. Officials said her hands and feet were bound when her body was found by highway workers.

Police say they have examined hundreds of hours of surveillance footage in the case and interviewed several potential witnesses.
