Mystery Surrounds Grisly Discovery of Sydney Woman in Suitcase

Australia Indian-origin woman dentist killed body found inside suitcase in car

Preethi Reddy, a 32-year-old Indian-Australian dentist, was found dead with multiple stab wounds in Sydney.

SMH reports that police confirmed Reddy's ex-boyfriend has died following a auto accident near Tamworth, shortly after speaking with detectives regarding Reddy's disappearance on Sunday.

"Preethi Reddy was reported missing by her family on Sunday (March 3), after she failed to come home from a dental convention at St Leonard's".

Investigators found Dr Reddy dead in her own vehicle on Strachan Lane in Kingsford east of the city about 11.30pm on Tuesday.

Police have found the body of a missing woman found stuffed in a suitcase in the back of a auto in Sydney's south-west, following a public appeal.

Police suspect that the dentist, Preethi Reddy, was murdered by her ex-boyfriend who could not cope with the prospect of her breaking up with him.

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.

"It's very important for us because, right now, we are working for Preethi and we are working for Preethi's family as well", Detective Superintendent Gavin Dengate said on Wednesday.

Reddy told her family members she would have a late breakfast in the central business district before returning home.




The head-on collision, around 340 kilometres from where Reddy's body was found, is believed to have been deliberate, they said.

ABC identified Preethi's ex-boyfriend as Harsh Narde.

Inquiries revealed Dr Reddy stayed at a hotel in the CBD with her ex-boyfriend on Sunday.

Dr Reddy has not been heard from since speaking to her family about 11am on Sunday.

Family friend Navniit Anand said Reddy was "a lovely human being" and her family was "shattered". Her colleagues said they were "terrified" and had been unable to sleep since her disappearance.

Her remains were found last night in Strachan Lane, just a few hundred metres from Anzac Parade and about 700m from the University of New South Wales.

Hurstville Dental & Physio Centre manager Dave Vagadia told news.com.au that Dr Reddy worked at the surgery as a dentist for about five months until March 2018.

She was captured on CCTV inside McDonald's at the Strand Arcade in Sydney's CBD about 2.15am on Sunday and appeared to leave alone.
