Officials say worker took photos of dead body

GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) - A town public works employee in Connecticut has been placed on administrative leave after officials say the worker took photos of a homicide victim whose body was found in a suitcase.

Greenwich officials said in a statement Thursday that the employee is on leave pending an investigation that will determine whether discipline is warranted. Officials would not identify the worker.

Greenwich First Selectman Peter Tesei called the employee's actions thoughtless, insensitive and inexcusable.

Police say town workers found the body of 24-year-old Valerie Reyes, of New Rochelle, New York, in a wooded area Tuesday morning. Authorities say she had been reported missing last week after she failed to show up for work.

No arrests have been announced.

It's not clear how Reyes died. Autopsy results are pending.
