After days of searching Police in Sydney Australia have confirmed that the body of Indian dentist Preethi Reddy has been found stuffed in a suitcase left in a vehicle in Sydney.
32-year-old Preethi Reddy was reported missing after she failed to come home from a dental convention at St Leonards on Sunday. Police issued an appeal for public assistance and circulated images of the Penrith dentist and her vehicle, reports SBS Australia.
The police found her body stuffed in a suitcase left in her grey Volkswagen Golf on Tuesday night. The gruesome discovery was made in the Kingsford area of Sydney.
“Following an appeal for information to the community, Preethi’s vehicle was located parked on Strachan Street, Kingsford, about 9.30pm yesterday (Tuesday 5 March 2019).
“During a search of the vehicle, police located Preethi’s body in a suitcase. She had been stabbed numerous times,” the NSW Police said in a statement.
SBS Reports Ms Reddy was last seen at a McDonald’s on Sunday and reportedly used her phone at 11:06 on Sunday morning.
Police say Ms Reddy stayed at a hotel on Market Street, Sydney CBD on Sunday with a man known to her.
Investigators have since revealed that the man “died in a head-on collision on the New England Highway, Willow Tree, about 10pm on Monday (5 March 2019)”.
A key suspect in the murder of Sydney woman Preethi Reddy has reportedly been identified as her ex-boyfriend Harsh Narde, who was killed in a fiery car crash on Monday night.
The NSW Police Force have established that Dr Reddy stayed at a hotel on Market Street in Sydney’s CBD on Sunday with fellow dentist Dr Narde before he died in a head-on collision with a truck on the New England Highway, south of Tamworth, at about 10pm the next day.
A NSW police spokesman confirmed on Wednesday that police had spoken to the Tamworth dentist, who was first identified by ABC News, as part of the missing person investigation before he was killed.
