    MSM has been all over the map on this story (unfortunately all too typical of a breaking new story like this). This article lists the suspect as 33 years old. I've seen 33 and 24 (which was her age). Hopefully a formal press release from either New Rochelle Police of SDNY will clarify some of the misinformation soon and MSM can realign.

    MSM has also been all over the map with the spelling of the suspect's name. Seems like in the last hour they're starting to align with this MSM (CBS NY) journalist: Tony Aiello (@AielloTV) | Twitter "Correction: suspect is Javier da Silva, apologize for minor misspelling" (I bolded for emphasis).

    Go figure... Right in the middle of the News Presser, Connecticut decides to run an emergency broadcast test with that annoying beep beep beep. :mad:

    CBS News Tony Aiello: #ValerieReyes mother: suspect Javier da Silva “was like really pushy, wouldn’t take no for an answer and my daughter started getting really frustrated with him.” Relationship lasted about eight months.

    I was able to catch the last few minutes of the Greenwich 2 PM presser on News 12 Connecticut. It was very brief, deferred a lot to New Rochelle PD and to SDNY. Not releasing much information, but did say they believe the suspect's fraudulent use of her ATM card was AFTER the time that they believe she was killed, which is what led them to hone in on that aspect of the investigation. Located and arrested the suspect last night, he admitted a role in her death.

    I wonder if JDS had learned or figured out that Valerie & her recent BF had taken a break. Specifically, that her recent BF was no longer at her basement apt often, if at all. He then seized upon this window of opportunity to move in on her.

    Perhaps, JDS began visiting her residence to check out entry/exit, etc and/or leaving empty VMs.

    I think he may have done even more that intensified her terror that someone might murder her.

    "Reyes’ mother, Norma Sanchez, told CBS New York that da Silva was fixated on horror movies, but a lot of people are who don’t end up like he did."
    "Da Silva was “really pushy, wouldn’t take no for an answer,” she said. Reyes got frustrated with him, and that’s when the relationship ended."

    You were correct about this one. The autopsy showed the ATM card was used after the presumed time of death.

    The ATM card used at 2am Wednesday morning. I am presuming then as she was last seen heading to the Train Station Tuesday morning that he must have been stalking her. She never made it to work. Some news articles reporting that she was killed at the residence. Looks like there are still unanswered questions with he final moments and how she ended up back at her house.

    Looks plausible that night he drove north to drop the body across state lines then south down to Lower Manhattan to use the card to throw the police?

    Well, that certainly clears up the whole question about whether we are dealing with one ex or two, doesn't it?

    I have to admit, I put a lot of weight on the fact that the consensus here seemed to be that it was Valerie who used the ATM card. With that not being true it changes everything. Now it's just a simple murdered in her home type of scenario.

    How sad that she didn't get help with this. Perhaps she didn't want family knowing she was dating two guys?

    Quotes from the mother suggests she knew both men. If the more recent boyfriend thought he was no where near New York possibly because he overstayed his visa, and they assumed he had returned to Venezuela. He might have gone to VR's residence to ask if she could habor him and she declined to do so? Also the reason perhaps she didnt want to tell her mother as she didnt want to disclose that he was still in the country?

    informative updates from CBS journalist Tony Aiello: @AielloTV - Twitter Search
    "Kidnapping resulting in death” makes this a potential death penalty case."
    "According to criminal complaint, da Silva claims #ValerieReyes fell and hit her head before he put tape over her mouth, bound her hands and feet, out body in suitcase and drove to Greenwich. Surveillance video and license plate readers are part of the evidence trail."

    I had done a Google map view of the fastest way from his stated address to hers, and suspected he would use a car vs public transit. The fastest route from his location in Queens to New Rochelle included toll roads, so I had hoped that gave them a good trail.

    Yet another case of intimate partner violence that turns fatal.

    Men are afraid that women will laugh at them.
    Women are afraid that men will kill them.
