Suspected Long Island Serial Killer Rex Heuermann Faces New Charges in Murders of Two More Women

Rex Heuermann, the suspected Long Island serial killer, made a return to a New York courthouse on Thursday to face charges related to the deaths of two additional women.

Heuermann faces additional murder charges for the deaths of Jessica Taylor in July 2003 and Sandra Costilla in November 1993.

According to court records, authorities discovered a document on Heuermann’s computer that they believe was used as a meticulous blueprint for his planned actions. The document contained sections covering various aspects such as reminders, challenges, necessary supplies, preparation, disposal sites, and targets.

Last year, authorities apprehended a 59-year-old architect from New York City in relation to three unsolved murders. Subsequently, prosecutors obtained an indictment for a fourth victim several months later. He appeared in court on Thursday wearing a suit and handcuffs, and is scheduled to return on July 30 as per FOX News.

A task force comprised of state and local investigators meticulously gathered evidence that ultimately led them to their prime suspect. This individual was identified based on an eyewitness description of his distinctive green Chevy Avalanche, as well as records obtained from numerous burner phones. Additionally, crime scene DNA and a discarded pizza crust played a crucial role in building the case against the suspect.

A gruesome discovery was made in Manorville, Suffolk County, on July 26, 2003. Taylor’s body was found with her head decapitated, her arms severed, and a tattoo mutilated. The discovery of her additional remains took place on March 29, 2011, in close proximity to Gilgo Beach, where the remains of the other victims had previously been found.

In July 2023, authorities apprehended Heuermann outside his Manhattan office and conducted an extensive search of his residence in Massapequa Park, located approximately 20 minutes away from the site where the bodies of Melissa Barthelemy, Megan Waterman, and Amber Costello were discovered in 2010.

Additional charges were filed by prosecutors in connection with the tragic death of Maureen Brainard-Barnes, 25, whose remains were discovered in close proximity to the other victims.

Authorities discovered the remains in the dense foliage along Ocean Parkway following the disappearance of Shannan Gilbert, who made a frantic 911 call pleading for assistance.

Authorities discovered an additional seven bodies located further east along the highway. Many of the deaths are still being investigated. Gilbert was the most recent one in 2011.
