Police on Tuesday reportedly arrested a man who previously dated Valerie Reyes, the woman whose body - bound at the hands and feet - was discovered last week stuffed into a large red suitcase dumped on a roadside in an affluent CT town.
Reyes, 24, went missing on January 29 from her home in New Rochelle, a small town in NY.
But police in Greenwich arrested another of her ex-boyfriends, Javier Da Silva, on Monday afternoon.
On Feb. 5, highway workers spotted a suitcase containing the body of Reyes, a 24-year-old, New Rochelle, N.Y resident just off a road in Greenwich, Conn.
A person was arrested in NY after fraudulently using Valerie Reyes' ATM card, according to Greenwich police.

Her family told police she had dated someone named "Javier" but they broke up about a year ago, according to court documents.
"Multiple crime scenes had been examined, hundreds of hours of surveillance footage had been reviewed, and numerous interviews of potential witnesses had been conducted", Berry said.
"This same suspect was interviewed jointly by Greenwich and New Rochelle detectives and admitted a role in the death of Valerie Reyes", Berry added.
According to the New York Police Department, Reyes suffered from depression and anxiety. "I just feel so blessed, overwhelmed".
Reyes' mother, Norma Sanchez, told WABC-TV last week that her daughter had broken up with her boyfriend days before she disappeared.

Sanchez said that she tried to pinpoint the source of her daughter's anxiety but failed. Was there someone at your house?' I asked about her ex-boyfriend.
Several items were missing from Reyes' apartment, police said. The New Rochelle, New York, woman's remains were found February 5 in a wooded section of Greenwich.
The chief medical examiner's office has completed an autopsy but has not yet released the cause and manner of Reyes' death.
Family and friends will remember Reyes from 2 to 4 p.m. and from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12, at Lloyd Maxcy & Sons Beauchamp Chapel, 16 Shea Place, in New Rochelle.
