Dentist found stuffed in suitcase day after boyfriend's car-crash death

At about 9.30 on Tuesday night, police found Dr Reddy's body inside her vehicle parked on Strachan Street at Kingsford.

Investigators believe Dr Reddy visited Narde's hotel to make it clear the relationship was over and he then stabbed her multiple times. Her boyfriend was also mysterious killed in a head-on collision with a truck on the New England Highway, south of Tamworth Monday night.

Dr Reddy worked at Glenbrook Dental Surgery in the lower Blue Mountains.

The ABC understands the man who died was the key suspect in Dr Reddy's murder.

The gruesome discovery of Dr Reddy's body on Tuesday came just hours after police issued a public appeal to find the 32-year-old from Penrith.

The police reported that they had spoken to Narde before his death as part of a preliminary investigation, claiming that the investigation had still been in its initial stages.

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

The suspect, Harsh Narde, who was her colleague at her previous workplace, was also found killed in a vehicle crash about 350 km from the place where Preeti's body was found. Police suspect that the accident of Narde was intentional and perhaps a suicide.

This morning her colleagues posted on Facebook about her death.

Her family didn't know if she attended the parade, where she stayed on Saturday night, where she was on Sunday morning, or what happened to her vehicle.

Her phone was last used on Sunday at 1.47pm on George Street. After she went missing her family put up a Facebook page titled "Help find Preethi Reddy".

CCTV footage showed Preethi at a McDonald's inside the Strand Arcade in Sydney's CBD about 2:15 am Sunday. "I spoke to her last Thursday and it was "see you next week" and completely normal", she said adding "Now I am just praying she will be found", Holmes said.

"I ask you all to think about her family right now and about giving them the space to actually to be in this space".

The NSW Police described Reddy's disappearance as "out of character" and said there were serious concerns of her welfare.

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.
