Various news sources have reported that Rex Heuermann, who was arrested for the murder of four women, is now being charged in the death of a fifth woman. He is scheduled to be indicted in Riverhead court before State Supreme Court Judge Timothy Mazzei on June 6.
It was reported that Heuermann will be indicted after two more victims were found, one of them in North Sea. The news reports did not say which victim is connected to Heuermann.

As previously reported in Long Island Life & Politics, law enforcement officials searched Heuermann’s Massapequa Park home; it was unclear at the time why they searched the home again, what they were hoping to find and what, if anything, did they find. They also searched the woods in a section of Manorville where part of the remains of Valerie Mack and Jessica Taylor were discovered in the early 2000s. It is not known if Heuermann is connected to the deaths of Mack and Taylor.

It was also previously reported in LILP that Heuermann, 60, was initially arrested in connection with the murders of Melissa Barthelemy, Megan Waterman and Amber Costello. He was also suspected of killing Maureen Brainard-Barnes.

Long Island Life and Politics contacted the Suffolk County Police Department and New York State police for information about the upcoming indictment. They referred LILP to Suffolk County District Attorney Ray Tierney’s office.

A spokesperson for the DA’s Office replied via email, “We can confirm that there will be a court proceeding related to the Gilgo case on Thursday…There are certain things law enforcement cannot discuss until after the court proceeding.”

LILP will continue to provide updates once they become available.

About Long Island Life and Politics

Long Island’s newest alternative newspaper.
A number of elected officials and candidates, as well as locally involved residents, have complained to us that their very newsworthy stories were unable to make it into print, given the somewhat monopolistic media environment today on Long Island.
We speak for the 50% of the population that feels shut out from the forums of expression that are controlled today by elites in academia, entertainment, major newspapers and social media.
