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 vehicle off Sydney's south-east area, reported the Sydney Morning Herald.

Preethi Reddy, a dentist, was reported missing on Sunday after she failed to return home to Penrith in Sydney after attending a convention.

Her stabbed body was found at 9.30pm on Tuesday inside her grey Volkswagen Golf, in Kingsford.

NSW Police superintendent Gaven Dengate tells Ray Hadley police questioned the man before was killed in a head-on collision with a truck on Monday night.

Narde swerved his BMW into the path of an oncoming semi-trailer in what police say was a "deliberate" act on Monday night.

Surveillance footage placed Reddy inside a McDonald's restaurant at the Strand Arcade in the CBD at about 2:15 p.m. before she left unaccompanied, heading south on Market Street.

According to police, she last spoke with her family at about 11am Sunday, saying she planned to head home after having a late breakfast in Sydney. Her family reported that Harsh has been harassing her from some time.

Preethi and Narde were in Sydney to attend a dentistry conference and they were together on Sunday before Preethi went missing.

She was working as dental surgeon at Glenbrook Dental Surgery, a hospital about 70 km from Sydney.

Dengate said Strike Force Carlwood officers investigating the case were unsure where and when Dr Reddy was murdered but were working on the probability she was killed at the hotel.

Her colleagues posted a tribute on Facebook on Wednesday, saying staff at the clinic were "in mourning" after hearing the news of her death.

"It is highly out of character for Preethi to not contact family and loved ones", one post said.
