A body found in a suitcase on the side of a road in an upscale Connecticut town has been identified as Valerie Reyes, 24, who had been reported missing, according to the Greenwich Police Department.

Reyes, a resident of New Rochelle, New York, had been reported missing to police in that city and was last seen on the morning of January 29, Greenwich police said. Her family was notified of the body’s identification Wednesday night.

“The Greenwich Police Department is dedicated to identifying those responsible for the death of Valerie and ensuring justice for her and her family,” police said in a statement, adding that it’s received “a multitude of tips about this homicide.”
