WCBS: Gilgo Beach Kills Suspect Expected to Be Indicted on Another Murder Charge


Gilgo Beach killing suspect Rex Heuermann is expected to be indicted on a new murder charge this week in a New York court, according to CNN affiliate WCBS.

Heuermann is expected in court Thursday, according to a spokesperson for the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office.

“A number of necessary investigative steps have been taken,” Suffolk County Prosecutor Raymond Tierney said Monday at a news conference on an unrelated matter. “On Thursday you will see the fruits of this investigation.”

Heuermann, who was arrested in July, is currently charged with the murder of four women whose remains were found buried next to each other on Long Island’s Gilgo Beach in 2010. These four women – known as ” Gilgo Four” — were among 11 sets of human remains discovered along Long Island’s South Shore between 2010 and 2011. The discoveries launched what police called “one of the longest-running homicide investigations most important” in the history of the island.

The expected new murder charge reportedly comes after investigators searched an area of ​​Long Island where the remains of two people were found more than two decades ago and just days after re-searching Heuermann’s home in the park Massapequa in New York.

A search warrant was executed at Heuermann’s home in May, CNN confirmed at the time with his ex-wife’s attorney, Robert Macedonia.

Heuermann has pleaded not guilty to the murder of the “Gilgo Four” – Melissa Barthelemy, Megan Waterman, Amber Costello and Maureen Brainard-Barnes.

He was charged last year for three of the deaths and then for Brainard-Barnes’ death in January. When he was charged in the fourth case in January, Heuermann maintained his innocence, his lawyer Michael Brown told reporters. “He said, ‘I’m not guilty of these charges.’ He looks forward to fighting these charges,” Brown said after the hearing.
