Greenwich DPW Worker Disciplined for Taking Photos of Slain Woman

A worker for the Connecticut town where a woman was found dead in a suitcase is facing discipline for taking and sharing photos of the victim's body.

Officials said the DPW employee admitted to taking photos of the body of 24-year-old Valerie Reyes after she was found in a suitcase off Glenville Road on February 4.

Reyes had been missing for nearly a week when her body was discovered. 

Greenwich officials announced in a statement Wednesday that the employee will be demoted from a position at the Department of Public Works for six months, suspended without pay for five days, and lose five vacation days. The town did not publicly identify the employee.

The employee will also be required to complete sensitivity training. There will not be criminal charges.

Police have charged Reyes' former boyfriend in connection with her death.
