New Rochelle news, New York news.

A tear-filled, emotional vigil was held on Thursday at Glen Park in New Rochelle in honor of Valerie Reyes, whose body was discovered in a red suitcase along a wooded, isolated Connecticut road.

The 24-year-old mother Norma Sanchez said at the candlelight vigil that her daughter was "pure, and a good soul," that "she did not deserve whatever you did to her," adding to the suspect(s) "you will be caught."

The victim was last seen on Jan. 29. She was, according to her mom, suffering anxiety and depression. And without mentioning someone in particular, she once told her:" I'm really really scared. I'm paranoid, Mommy, I'm getting anxiety attacks."

On Wednesday, authorities said that they collected a multitude of tips in connection with the case. No arrests have been made.
