Rex Huerman, a self-described “troubleshooter” architect with an interest in persuasion, was captured on Long Island and charged with the infamous Gilgo Beach murders.
sources told Post Rex Huerman, 59, was arrested Friday by a special task force investigating the murders after police raided his home in Massapequa Park.
According to one source, he was on the radar of the Gilgo Beach Homicide Investigation Task Force for at least a year before he was finally captured after being linked by DNA.
Neighbor Barry Auslander, 72, said Friday that Heuerman “appears to be an average guy who has a family and goes to work.”
“He grew up here. I never thought he was anything other than a businessman,” he said.
Heuermann has owned his own Fifth Avenue-based business, RH Architecture Design, since 1994—six years before the first bodies were discovered in the connected Long Island massacre. Heuermann currently serves as its chairman.

He also claimed to be an avid furniture maker, inspired by his father, whom he described as a cabinet maker and “aerospace engineer who built satellites”.

After it was reported that New York City authorities had arrested a Long Island suspect connected to the murders, Rex Huerman was exposed as a suspect in the Gilgo Beach murders, leading to the murder of ten young women. A decade-long search has come to an end.
The investigation is being led by Suffolk County Police and the Suffolk County District Attorney.
Police found eleven sets of human remains on a Suffolk County highway following a search for 24-year-old sex worker Shannon Gilbert.
The search led to the discovery of Melissa Barthelemy, Megan Waterman, Amber Lynn Costello, and Maureen Brainard-Barnes.
Additionally, the remains of Jessica Taylor were also found and in 2011 the remains of Valerie Mack were also found.
The search continues as authorities have identified two more remains from Nassau County.
