Man linked to murdered Sydney dentist dead

Dr. Preethi Reddy went missing on Sunday and the police found her body in a vehicle trunk.

Police had released images of the 32-year-old and of her missing grey Volkswagen Golf in an effort to locate her.

Police suspect that the dentist, Preethi Reddy, was murdered by her ex-boyfriend who could not cope with the prospect of her breaking up with him.

The gruesome discovery followed her former boyfriend fatally driving his BMW into a semi-trailer on the New England Highway on Monday night.

The man was identified as Harshwardhan Narde, a 34-year-old dentist revealed Daily Mail.

She last spoke with her family that morning, saying she planned to head home after having a late breakfast.

"It's been an agonising two months for Samah's family as it is a long time to not see or hear from her", Parramatta Police Area commander superintendent Julie Boon said in a public statement.

Dr Reddy worked at Glenbrook Dental Surgery in the Blue Mountains, around 70 kilometres west of Sydney.

The police reported that they had spoken to Narde before his death as part of a preliminary investigation, claiming that the investigation had still been in its initial stages.

Dr Reddy was attending a dental conference in the suburb of St Leonards at the weekend, and last spoke to her family at around 11am on Sunday.

After her family filed a missing person case at the police station, investigators launched a search for her auto which they found parked near Strachan Street, Kingsford, about 9.30 pm on Tuesday.

The next known sighting of Reddy was in the early hours of Sunday morning, when CCTV footage placed her leaving McDonald's on George Street just after 2.15am.

Police officers searched the vehicle after it was found at Strachan Lane. She then left the restaurant and walked south through the city towards Market Street. A missing case was filed later that night after she failed to arrive home, according to New South Wales Police who are investigating the missing case. She was always cheerful, happy and a positive person. She had been stabbed "numerous times".

Friends of the western Sydney woman say that it was an unequivocal decision, and not one that she had re-thought.
