Body of missing Sydney dentist Preethi Reddy found in suitcase

– A man known to a murdered Sydney dentist was killed in a car crash a day before her body was discovered stuffed inside a suitcase, police have confirmed.

Investigators found Preethi Reddy dead in her own car on Strachan Lane in Kingsford about 9.30pm on Tuesday, having been stabbed “numerous times”.

The gruesome discovery came just hours after police issued a public appeal to find the 32-year-old from Penrith.

Dr Reddy was reported missing on Sunday night after she failed to return home following a dental convention at St Leonards over the weekend.

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.

She last spoke with her family about 11am later that morning, saying she planned to head home after having a late breakfast, police said.

Detectives believe Dr Reddy stayed at a hotel on Market Street on Sunday “with a man known to her”.

They have since discovered that he died in a head-on collision on the New England Highway at Willow Tree, in the Upper Hunter, about 10pm on Monday.

“Detectives … are investigating the circumstances surrounding the collision, which is believed to be a deliberate act,” police said in a statement.

It’s believed Dr Reddy worked at Glenbrook Dental Surgery, in the lower Blue Mountains.

“Glenbrook Dental Surgery staff are in mourning to hear the sad news about Preethi Reddy,” her colleagues posted on Wednesday morning.
