EARLIER STORY

A body was found “along the side of Glenville Road” on Tuesday morning, Greenwich police said.

Police said they will provide more details at a press conference at noon Tuesday.

“The Greenwich Police Department is investigating the death of a subject found along the side of Glenville Road,” said a statement from Lt. John Slusarz, public information officer.

Glenville Road was closed Tuesday morning shortly after 9 a.m. Sawhorses were set up with police cars also blocking the roadway. Officers were on the scene near Glenville Center as traffic was diverted at the Shell station.

Numerous residents and passersby expressed concern and curiosity about the police presence.

Liza Scullin, walking her dog Fletcher, said the discovery of a body in the quiet neighborhood was troubling.

“I feel like this neighborhood is relatively safe, so it’s a surprise. Finding a body near where you live, it’s concerning,” she said.

News trucks were parked on Glenville Road, and a police officer was kept busy blocking traffic and talking to motorists.

Police are asking motorists to avoid the usually busy Glenville Road, which is closed for about a mile-and-a-half from Valley Road to Weaver Street, at Eagle Hill School near central Greenwich.

An urgent traffic notice sent out from the Greenwich Police Department on Tuesday morning stated: Glenville Road in Greenwich CT will be closed until further notice due to police investigation. Further information to follow.

They should start by questioning anyone local with Kennedy blood.

Greenwich police identify woman found dead in suitcase, DPW worker on administrative leave

GREENWICH, Conn. (WTNH) - Police have identified the woman who was found dead inside of a suitcase in Greenwich on Tuesday morning.

Police say that at around 8:23 a.m., officers responded to Glenville Road after the body of a woman was found in a suitcase with her hands and feet bound, just off the east shoulder of the roadway.

After an investigation, the victim was identified as 24-year-old Valerie Reyes, of New Rochelle, New York.

Reyes had been reported missing to New Rochelle police after she was last seen at around 9 a.m. on January 29th.

The cause of death has not been confirmed at this time. Police are investigating her death as a homicide.

“The Greenwich Police Department is dedicated to identifying those responsible for the death of Valerie and ensuring justice for her and her family. We continue to work with New Rochelle Police and other law enforcement agencies at multiple levels and have engaged a variety of resources to assist in the investigation," Greenwich Police Captain Robert Berry said in a press release.

A town public works employee in Greenwich has been placed on administrative leave after officials said the worker took photos of her body.

Greenwich officials said in a statement Thursday that the employee is on leave pending an investigation that will determine whether discipline is warranted. Officials would not identify the worker.

Greenwich First Selectman Peter Tesei called the employee's actions thoughtless, insensitive and inexcusable.

No arrests have been announced.

Reyes worked at the Barnes & Noble store in Eastchester, New York for two and half years. 

The company released the following statement regarding her death:

    "The entire Barnes & Noble community is grieving the loss of our beloved employee Valerie Reyes. She worked in our Barnes & Noble Eastchester store since it opened two-and-a-half years ago. Our hearts go out to her family, friends, and coworkers during this difficult time."

Police say that they have received several tips about this homicide. They are asking the public for any information on Reyes and/or her disappearance.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Greenwich Police Tip Line at (203) 622-3333 and email at You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login.

"Sources told CBS New York the man arrested is Javier da Silva of Flushing, N.Y., who previously had a relationship with the victim. Da Silva is a native of Venezuela and “has been in the country illegally since overstaying his visa,” CBS reported, citing sources."

Well that will get buried very quick by the local media.  :undecided:

And as expected local media leaves out the guy is an illegal due to overstaying his visa.

Ex-boyfriend held in death of woman in suitcase

The ex-boyfriend of the New York woman whose body was found inside a suitcase in a wooded area of Connecticut was held without bail Tuesday on a charge carrying a potential death penalty.

Javier Enrique Da Silva Rojas, 24, of Queens, New York, was detained in the death of 24-year-old Valerie Reyes after he appeared in federal court in White Plains, New York.

The victim's body was found on Feb. 5 inside a suitcase discarded near a Connecticut road by highway workers. The discovery came after she was reported missing on Jan. 30 by her mother, father and boyfriend, authorities said.

Da Silva Rojas was arrested in Queens, New York, on Monday. A defense lawyer did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

Federal authorities said Da Silva Rojas told authorities in a videotaped interview at the New Rochelle Police Department that Reyes fell to the floor and hit her head after they had sex on Jan. 29 at her residence.

They said he indicated he put packing tape over her mouth, bound her legs and hands, and put her in a suitcase that he put in a forest after driving for some time.

Da Silva Rojas was charged with kidnapping resulting in death, which carries a potential penalty of death or life in prison. Prosecutors have not yet indicated if they will seek death if he is convicted.

William F. Sweeney Jr., head of the FBI's New York office, said federal authorities teamed with police in Greenwich and New Rochelle to "swiftly identify Javier Da Silva, an alleged murderer, and place him behind bars."

"While today's arrest is certainly a welcome conclusion, it in no way alleviates the pain and suffering Valerie's family will continue to feel for years to come. The reality of their situation is utterly unimaginable, as is the crime with which Da Silva is charged," Sweeney said.

Investigators "zeroed in" on Da Silva Rojas after he allegedly used Reyes' ATM card to withdraw cash multiple times after her death, Greenwich Police Capt. Robert Berry said.

"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," Berry said in a written statement.

Reyes, of New Rochelle, New York, was reported missing when she did not show up for work Jan. 30 at a bookstore. Autopsy results from the Connecticut Office of the Chief Medical Examiner are still pending.

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

Reyes had worked at a Barnes & Noble store in Eastchester, New York, since it opened 2 ½ years ago, according to the bookstore chain.
