Indian-origin dentist killed in Australia; body found in suitcase

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

On Tuesday, the police found her vehicle parked in Strachan Lane in Kingsford.

Investigators found Dr Reddy's body in her grey VW Golf in a Kingsford lane about 9.30pm on Tuesday.

She was last seen at Macdonalds following the Mardi Gras parade, and last spoke to her family at around 11am on Sunday, letting them know she was heading home.

She worked as a general dentist at Glenbrook Dental Surgery in the lower Blue Mountains, and was previously employed at Hurstville Dental And Physio Centre in western Sydney, and Dapto Smile Dental Centre, near Wollongong.

Narde died after his BMW auto collided with a truck on the New England Highway on Monday night, a day after his ex-girlfriend was reported missing, New South Wales Police (NSW) said. The man who was suspected of killing the woman was her Indian-origin ex-boyfriend and dentist Harsh Narde.

Police on Wednesday confirmed that they had spoken to Narde while investigating Reddy's death before he died on Monday.

"I can not qualify exactly what has happened and I won't put it out there because if we're wrong and it's not substantiated then we're doing a disservice to Preethi and her family", Detective Superintendent Gavin Dengate told ABC News.

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. Officers believe that she left the fast-food chain alone.

Her family raised the alarm when she did not return to Penrith on Sunday night.

A Facebook page was set up soon after Dr Reddy went missing, calling for people to "help find Preethi Reddy".

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

"The freakish thing I noticed that night was that he took down his Facebook shortly after the conference". Quoting Detective Superintendent Gavin Dengate, local newspapers reported that the duo had met in Sydney and the police are still looking at all the movements of the two.

That crash, which occurred about 10 PM (local time), is "believed to be a deliberate act", police said.

There are many unanswered questions involving the disappearance of a Sydney dentist and how she ended up dead in a suitcase just days later.

In a statement released on behalf of Dr Reddy's family, her sister Nithya said: "Words can not capture the pain we are feeling with the passing of my handsome big sister".
