Man Linked To Preethi Reddy Murder Found Dead

Man Linked To Preethi Reddy Murder Found Dead

The main person of interest in the case, Preethi's 34-year-old ex-boyfriend, Harshwardhan Narde, had also died in a vehicle crash. "That was it", a source close to the situation said, adding that Reddy had moved on to a new boyfriend.

Investigators believe that Narde did not accept that, and had attended the weekend conference purely in order to see her.

Police released the last images they had of Reddy at a McDonald's on George Street in the city centre after Mardi Gras on Sunday morning at 2.15am.

She bought two bottles of water before leaving, walking south towards Market Street.

The New South Wales police believe that the road accident was deliberate. Her sister, Nithya Reddy, lodged a complaint with the Sydney police.

She is believed to have spoken with her family at about 11am on Sunday, telling them she would be having a late breakfast before heading home.

On Tuesday night, the Reddy family received the devastating news that police had discovered the body of their "sweet, smiling angel". The cops staged several inquiries but could not trace her and her Volkswagen Golf. "In this hard time we ask that you respect the family's privacy and refer to the NSW Police Force for further news", her family said in a statement, after the police announced that her body had been found. He passed away in head-on collision on the New England Highway near Willow Tree at about 10 pm on Monday. He died at the scene of the crash.

"We will miss him beyond words".

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.

He was interviewed by police on Monday but not arrested. "We've got to think about that", he said, expressing condolences to Dr Reddy's family and friends.

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

She was not seen or heard from since.

In a statement issued Wednesday night, Nithya Reddy said "words can not capture the pain we are feeling with the passing of my handsome big sister".

"Preethi was a bright light; loveable, kind, and protective of all whom were lucky enough to have been loved and cared for by her".

NSW Police described Reddy's disappearance as "out of character" and said there were serious concerns of her welfare.

"The weird thing I noticed that night was that he took down his Facebook shortly after the conference". She was always cheerful, happy and a positive person. "Losing her like this is unbearable", her fellow Manipal University alumnus said.
