Body of missing Sydney dentist Preethi Reddy found in suitcase

Two days after 32-year-old Indian-origin dentist Preethi Reddy went missing from one of Sydney's busiest areas under mysterious circumstances, her body was found stuffed in a suitcase with multiple stab wounds.

Harshwardhan Narde, 34, died after his auto rammed a truck on the New England Highway in NSW on Monday, a day after Preethi was reported missing.

Nithya Reddy said her sister's movements over the weekend before this were still unknown.

Meanwhile, Reddy's sister described her sibling as a "bright light", according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

She then left the store alone, and walked south on Market Street.

The man is believed to be her former boyfriend who was also attending the dental conference, a police source told AAP.

Preethi was last seen on a CCTV footage where she was spotted at a McDonald's joint waiting for her order.

"Preethi Reddy was reported missing by her family on Sunday (March 3), after she failed to come home from a dental convention at St Leonards. Please let her handsome soul rest in peace".

Police had previously disseminated images of Dr Reddy and her grey Volkswagen Golf and Sydney City Police Area Command established Strike Force Carlwood in an effort to locate her.

Police said her failure to contact family for such a long time was out of character and they had serious concerns for her welfare.

Detectives are investigating the crash, which they believe was deliberate. He died at the scene of the crash.

"Glenbrook Dental Surgery staff are in mourning to hear the sad news about Preethi Reddy", the post read.

Police had interviewed him as a "standard" procedure after Reddy's disappearance was reported.

"He was not at the time of this incident in a relationship with Preethi however there had been a previous relationship", he said.

Inquiries revealed Dr Reddy stayed at a hotel in the CBD with her ex-boyfriend on Sunday.

"I have goose bumps talking about it", he said.

More than a dozen mourners gathered at the family's South Penrith home on Wednesday.

In a statement issued Wednesday night, Nithya Reddy said "words can not capture the pain we are feeling with the passing of my lovely big sister". "It takes a lot of effort to be a dentist and she achieved it. the family's so proud that they had a daughter like that", Anand told reporters.

"The ABC understands Dr Narde was the key suspect in Dr Reddy's murder", the report said. She was always cheerful, happy and a positive person. "Losing her like this is unbearable", her fellow Manipal University alumnus said.

"She was a strong girl who loved dentistry. Gone too soon", she wrote.
