Gilgo Beach Killings Suspect Rex Heuermann Faces New Murder Charge: Indictment Expected This Week, Says CNN

Suffolk County, New York – Rex Heuermann, the suspect in the Gilgo Beach killings, is set to face a new murder charge this week in a New York court. Heuermann, already facing murder charges in connection with the deaths of four women whose remains were found on Long Island’s Gilgo Beach in 2010, is expected to be indicted for another murder, according to officials.

The Suffolk County District Attorney’s office spokesperson confirmed that Heuermann is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday. The announcement of the forthcoming indictment comes after a series of investigative steps that have taken place in the case.

The discovery of the remains of the four women, known as the “Gilgo Four”, in 2010 sparked a significant homicide investigation on Long Island’s South Shore. The case has led to the uncovering of a total of 11 sets of human remains in the area between 2010 and 2011.

In addition to the charges related to the “Gilgo Four”, Heuermann has also been under investigation in connection with the discovery of remains dating back more than two decades. Recent searches in Long Island and at Heuermann’s residence have brought new developments to the case.

Heuermann, who was arrested in July, has maintained his innocence in the face of the charges against him. His attorney has stated that Heuermann denies any involvement in the deaths of the women and is prepared to contest the charges in court.

The upcoming court proceedings will shed more light on the case and the investigation surrounding the Gilgo Beach killings. As the legal process unfolds, the community awaits answers and justice for the victims and their families.
