According to prosecutors for the United States Attorney's Office in the Southern District of NY, 24-year-old Queens, N.Y., resident Javier Da Silva was arrested and charged with one count of kidnapping, "resulting in the death of Valerie Reyes".
"Not Venezuela, Portugal", replied suspect Javier da Silva when asked in White Plains federal court whether he wanted the governments of the nations in which he holds dual-citizenship to be informed of his legal troubles.
Authorities were led to de Silva when he fraudulently used Reyes' ATM card to withdraw money from a machine.
She was last seen on January 29 and was later reported missing to the New Rochelle Police.
