Suspected Gilgo Beach serial killer linked to two more victims by explosive new testimony, lawyers say

Suspected Gilgo Beach serial killer Rex Heuermann is allegedly a “serial user” of sex workers who attended “swinger” parties.

And he had firsthand run-ins with two women whose bodies were found under similar circumstances to three others he’s accused of murdering, according to the lawyer for their families. 

The new allegations came during a news briefing by the Long Island lawyer, John Ray, who stood alongside Suffolk County Police Commissioner Rodney Harrison. Although, no new charges had been filed as of Wednesday afternoon, and county District Attorney Ray Tierney distanced himself from the claims. 

Separately, a lawyer for Heuermann’s wife categorically denied several of the new claims that mentioned his client.

“We added two more investigators to this task force to take this kind of information in and to pursue it,” Harrison said. “We have the information. We’re working it. And we’ll see where it leads us down the road.”

Heuermann has pleaded not guilty to his current charges and would face up to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole if convicted.
