Body of missing Sydney dentist found in suitcase

Sydney dentist was 'living her best life' before being found murdered

Following inquiries, police located a vehicle in Strachan Lane in Kingsford just before 9.30pm on Tuesday.

Police had issued a public appeal after the disappearance of the 32-year-old woman.

She was captured on CCTV inside the restaurant and appeared to leave alone a short time later.

She told them that she would head home after breakfast, and when she failed to return, her family contacted police.

"Glenbrook Dental Surgery staff are in mourning to hear the sad news about Preethi Reddy", her colleagues posted today.

The investigation officials also said that the main suspect in the killing, her former boyfriend, died in a road accident that seemed deliberate, shortly after she was murdered.

It's unclear whether they were intimately involved or not.

NSW Police superintendent Gaven Dengate tells Ray Hadley police questioned the man before was killed in a head-on collision with a truck on Monday night.

Police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding her death and are asking anyone with information to come forward.

Dr Reddy worked at Glenbrook Dental Surgery in the Blue Mountains, around 70km west of Sydney.

The two leaders resumed talks on Thursday with both expressing hope for progress on improving relations and on denuclearisation. The president's schedule on Thursday promised a "joint agreement signing ceremony" but talks wrapped up earlier than expected.

"I saw that she was missing from her sister's post on Facebook and was in pure shock when I later saw on the news about what had happened", he said.

A Facebook page set up to help find Dr Reddy said it was "highly out of character for Preethi to not contact family and loved ones".

She asked for their privacy, particularly her parents and Preethi's partner to be respected.

Investigators are appealing for more information about Dr Reddy and her whereabouts before her death, including any sightings, her mood and what she was wearing.

The dentist's remains had been stuffed in a suitcase in the boot of her late-model Volkswagen Golf abandoned on a Kingsford street.

"I told them I might notice the auto before".

In a statement issued Wednesday night, Nithya Reddy said "words can not capture the pain we are feeling with the passing of my lovely big sister".

While we now know that Preethi is no longer with us, the certainty of her movements on Saturday night and Sunday morning are not yet fully known, and we will stay in touch with detectives as they work it all out.

Preethi and Narde were in Sydney to attend a dentistry conference and they were together on Sunday before Preethi went missing.
