    Semyon Shamsiyev, the man suspected of killing a 25-year-old woman and leaving her body in a suitcase next to a dumpster, bought the luggage less than two hours before a restaurant employee found the body and called police, according to records.

    According to police records, Shamsiyev, 36, can be seen on surveillance footage paying for a suitcase in cash at a Target and leaving in a white van similar to one seen on security footage from a storage facility across from where Kali Bouldin's body was found.

    Police knew they were looking for a white minivan in connection with the murder.

    One happened to pull into the parking lot of the apartment complex where investigators tracked down Bouldin's rental car, and police say Shamsiyev was behind the wheel, according to records released Monday.

    Bouldin's identity was unknown when her body was found on the morning of Dec. 4 inside the suitcase near Bell Road and 16th Street.

    The county medical examiner used fingerprints to identify her, records show, and an autopsy revealed Bouldin was strangled.

    The day Bouldin's body was found, an acquaintance reported her missing, and a police search of her last known residence showed no signs of foul play. Bouldin's purse, cellphone and rental car were missing from the residence, records show.

    Police filed a stolen-vehicle report with the rental company, activating a GPS tracking system that traced the car to an apartment complex near the scene.

    Police went to the complex with an image of the man taken at Target earlier that day. Security officers said the man lived in the complex, but police said they refused to provide identifying information.

    A white van drove up and parked in the complex during the police interview with security, and a man later identified as Shamsiyev exited the vehicle. Police said they immediately took him into custody.

    While searching Shamsiyev's apartment, police say they noticed a large piece of carpet had been cut from the the flooring and was surrounded by a red stain. Pieces of bedding were also missing; medical examiners found two white bedsheets in the suitcase with Bouldin's body, records show.

    Shamsiyev told police that he knew Bouldin as a prostitute and that she tried to rob him the last time he saw her, records say. When pressed for details, Shamsiyev said he passed out and asked for a lawyer, police said.

    Bouldin's older brother, Jesse Bouldin, said that while his sister has had a troubled past and tried to overcome an addiction to pills, she would not have resorted to working as a prostitute.

    "She had a fair bit of trouble in the past, that's part of the reason I moved her out here (from Florida) a couple of years ago," he said.

    Jesse said his sister got clean when she moved to Arizona in the summer of 2012 and remained that way for about six months before she got into a new relationship and started abusing drugs again.

    Kali Bouldin grew up in Florida, where she cultivated an interest in fashion and design, Jesse said, but her sole focus became motherhood after she had a daughter.

    Kali did not have custody of her daughter.

    One of her goals in moving to the Valley was to get a home so she could move her child to be with her,
    Jesse said.

    But her drug addiction and relationships meant she will never have that chance, Jesse said.

    "She should have just reached out to her family," he said "She had such a crappy upbringing."
