“Architect Rex Heuermann Arrested in Connection with Gilgo Beach Murders”

By | July 14, 2023



A man has been arrested in connection with the long-unsolved Gilgo Beach murders on Long Island. Rex Heuermann, an architect living across a bay from where some of the bodies were found, was taken into custody in Massapequa, New York. The Gilgo Beach case has gained immense public attention since human remains were discovered along a beach highway over a decade ago. The deaths of 11 individuals, mostly young women who were sex workers, have long puzzled investigators. The bodies were found in thickets along Gilgo Beach, and determining who killed them and why has proved challenging for law enforcement.

Heuermann’s arrest marks a significant development in the case, which has garnered national headlines and was the subject of the 2020 Netflix film “Lost Girls.” A task force consisting of investigators from the FBI, state, and local police departments was formed last year to focus on solving the murders. The arrest of Heuermann demonstrates the renewed commitment of law enforcement to bring justice to the victims and their families.

Investigators, some wearing protective suits, searched Heuermann’s home in Massapequa as part of their ongoing investigation. The arrest has shocked the local community, as neighbors described the suspect’s house as dilapidated and out of place among well-kept residences in the area. Heuermann’s lawyer has yet to comment on the arrest.

Authorities have scheduled a press conference to discuss the charges against Heuermann. The arrest brings hope to the families of the victims, who have been waiting for justice for over a decade. While the case remains complex and multiple perpetrators may be involved, the arrest represents a significant step forward in uncovering the truth behind the Gilgo Beach murders..
