A person was arrested in NY after fraudulently using Valerie Reyes' ATM card, according to Greenwich police.

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.

Da Silva - a Venezuelan citizen living illegally in the NY borough of Queens after overstaying his visa - was arrested Monday night. He holds dual citizenship with Venezuela, and it is believed he broke up with Reyes a year ago.

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

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

"She said, "Mami, his mother has cancer and I want to support him.' She was an angel like that", Reyes" mother, Norma Sanchez said. "I just feel so blessed, overwhelmed".

Sanchez said that she tried to pinpoint the source of her daughter's anxiety but failed. "The only thing that's weird is she was frightened for her life, and then somebody ends up taking her life". An autopsy was carried out on Wednesday night, but the cause of death has not been disclosed by the coroner.

Highway workers found her body in a wooded section of Greenwich, about 10 miles from New Rochelle. He said Reyes wasn't afraid of da Silva.

According to The Journal, Reyes had taken her iPad, iPhone, clothes and bed sheets with her when she disappeared.

Reyes had been reported missing on January 30 when she did not show up for work at a bookstore.

A candlelight vigil was organised on behalf of the Reyes family on Thursday night. Her body had already undergone the early stages of decomposition. "She didn't mention no one specific", Sanchez said. "Additional information on the suspect and charges will be released by the New Rochelle Police Department", he said late Tuesday morning.

After she vanished, her family hired a private investigator to look for her.

CrimeOnline spoke with Justin Orda, who as identified as Reyes' most recent boyfriend.

"Today he tweeted: "#JusticeforValerie" and "What's done in the dark will always find a way to shine".
