The 24-year-old woman whose body was found stuffed in a suitcase in the CT woods had premonitions the night before she vanished that someone was going to kill her, multiple news outlets report.
"It's always sensitive to us that every time we have a tragedy such as this, there's a family connected to it", Capt. Barry said, "and we always try to keep that forethought in our minds; and our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to that family, wherever they may be".
A town highway worker saw the suitcase about 15 feet off the road on Tuesday morning and told the police.
Investigators in Greenwich "have received a multitude of tips, ' according to Berry, who said authorities are reaching out to the public for any information regarding Reyes" disappearance.
The Connecticut chief medical examiner's office, which assisted in identifying Reyes, has not released the cause and manner of death.
"The Greenwich Police Department is dedicated to identifying those responsible for the death of Valerie and ensuring justice for her and her family".
Reyes went missing in late January after she didn't show up for work.
After the discovery, police officials said that the case was a murder case.
Sanchez asked her daughter if someone threatened her, and asked about her ex, but Reyes said no, Sanchez told WABC. An autopsy was carried out on Wednesday night but the cause of death has not been disclosed by the coroner.
Meanwhile, the highway worker who found the body is under investigation, officials said.
"The victim was a daughter, a sister and a cousin of a family who is suffering a tremendous loss at this time", Tesei said.
"A attractive soul. A lovely daughter to me; a handsome sister, always caring", her mother said.
"It's unnerving and a little scary, but hopefully they are good at their job and will get things done", Anthony Zaccagnino, who owns a nearby gas station, told NBC New York.
"To have done something like that shows a disregard for the decedent and their loved ones". Please contact me if you have any information or if you might have seen her, ' Angie wrote in the post.
After the body was found, people who live and work nearby said they were nervous. "Customers came down and said somebody found a body in a suitcase at the top of the hill", he added.
"I asked her, 'Why do you feel this way?"
"Horrified. Absolutely horrified", Bradford, 19, told The Associated Press.
