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

A man named Javier da Silva, of Flushing, Queens, reportedly has confessed to the murder of a young Westchester County, New York, woman named Valerie Reyes, who was 24, according to reports on Tuesday.

"What zeroed us in, and the investigators from New Rochelle, was from the timeline we established, we believe she was already deceased and we saw continued ATM [bank] activity", Greenwich Police Captain Robert Berry told reporters Tuesday, the Greenwich Free Press reported.

On Tuesday, DeSilva appeared before a federal magistrate in White Plains who ordered him held without bail, ABC News reports. It was not clear whether he has a lawyer.

Reyes, of New Rochelle, New York, was reported missing on January 30 when she did not show up for work at a bookstore. Missing American lady Valerie Reyes' body was found on a suitcase in Greenwich near CT on Feb 5.

Reyes lived alone in a basement apartment in New Rochelle and suffered at times from anxiety and depression, WABC reported.

The suspect is accused of using Valerie Reyes' ATM card.

Reacting to the arrest of Da Silva, Reyes' mother, Norma Sanchez said; "They released his name - my heart dropped".

Reyes, a Barnes & Noble store clerk, had broken up with her boyfriend five days earlier, according to Sanchez. Officials said her hands and feet were bound when her body was found by highway workers.

Multiple crime scenes had been examined, hundreds of hours of surveillance footage had been reviewed, and numerous interviews of potential witnesses had been conducted.
