Rex Heuermann Arrested in Gilgo Beach Serial Killing
Rex Heuermann, a New York architect, has been charged with six counts of murder in connection with the deaths of three women known as the "Gilgo Four." He is also the prime suspect in the fourth woman's death.
Heuermann appeared in court in Long Island, where he pleaded not guilty and was remanded without bail. His next court date is scheduled for August 1.
Heuermann is a registered architect and owns the architecture and consulting firm RH Consultants & Associates in New York City.
He has faced tax troubles, being years late in paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes. He has also filed lawsuits accusing drivers of injuring him in car accidents.
A task force was formed in 2022 to investigate the Gilgo Beach killings, and the case became a priority for the Suffolk County District Attorney, Ray Tierney.
Investigators found connections between Heuermann and the crimes through phone records and DNA evidence.
Heuermann has permits for 92 guns and is known to keep them in a large safe.
Heuermann's childhood home, where he currently resides, is located near the area where the bodies were found.
Heuermann has a history of architectural work, including resolving issues with the state Department of Buildings.
Heuermann's firm, RH Architecture, listed his daughter as an employee, but that information has been taken offline.
