The dead and mutilated body of a dentist of Indian origin, who had gone missing since Sunday morning from the central business district of Sydney, was found on Tuesday night in a suitcase in her own auto off Sydney's south-east area, reported the Sydney Morning Herald.

The NSW Police Force have established that Dr Reddy stayed at a hotel on Market Street in Sydney's CBD on Sunday with fellow dentist Dr Narde before he died in a head-on collision with a truck on the New England Highway, south of Tamworth, at about 10pm the next day.

The body of 32-year-old Preethi Reddy has been found in a suitcase.

It is understood the couple endured several years of a long-distance relationship after he moved out of Sydney, but last year she ended it.

Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding Ms Reddy's death. "That was it", a source close to the situation said, adding that Reddy had moved on to a new boyfriend.

CCTV footage showed Dr Reddy inside McDonald's at the Strand Arcade in the Sydney CBD at 2:15am on Sunday morning.

This morning her colleagues posted on Facebook about her death.

Police believe that Narde traveled the 250 miles from Tamworth to St Leonards for the conference with the sole goal of seeing his former girlfriend, with whom he had a tumultuous on-again, off-again, long-distance relationship for several years.

Police were told she last made contact with her family about 11 am on Sunday, saying she planned to head home after having a late breakfast in Sydney.

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

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

Detective Superintendent Gavin Dengate today confirmed the pair were not in a relationship at the time but had been previously.

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