Cops are seen hauling huge filing cabinet out of Gilgo Beach ‘serial killer’ Rex Heuermann’s home

Forensic police officers from various agencies including the New York State Police could be seen hauling large items, including a giant filing cabinet, out of suspected serial killer Rex Heuermann’s Long Island home on Saturday. 

Heuermann, 59,  who has lived for decades in Massapequa Park, is charged with killing Melissa Barthelemy, Megan Waterman and Amber Costello. 

He is also considered the prime suspect in the death of a fourth woman whose body was bound and hidden in thick underbrush along a remote beach highway, authorities said.

Heuermann pleaded not guilty to multiple murder charges. He insists he ‘didn’t do this,’ his lawyer Michael Brown said. 

A former classmate of the suspect, Maureen Boyle Holpit, told Fox News that he would regularly leave love notes in her locker while they were in high school together. Messages included: ‘I think you’re pretty’ or ‘I like you. Could like me back?’

In her interview with Fox News, Holpit said that she never saw Heuermann as a threat. 

‘He was quiet, kind of shy. He seemed nice, and pleasant. Mild-mannered. That’s all I could really remember of him. I was always nice and kind to him. He seemed to have gotten teased a little bit because he was shy and maybe a little nerdy,’ she said.

‘But there were no indicators or red flags to me now that I’m looking back that he could do something like this,’ Holpit also said. 

She said that she was only notified about Heuermann’s arrest on Friday from other friends, some of who are former classmates.

‘And just from what I see from other people’s comments (on social media), and from the friends that I’m still in contact with, we’re just totally blown away and shocked. You just never expect this,’ she said. 

Among those classmates who posted online was actor Billy Baldwin, brother of Alec. 

Heuermann and his brother Craig attended the same school, Berner High, as Baldwin, and graduated five years after the Hollywood star in 1981.

Yearbook photographs show Heuermann was part of the school drama club.

Alec Baldwin’s brother, Billy, tweeted that he was a classmate of Heuermann’s. He said: ‘Woke up this morning to learn that the Gilgo Beach serial killer suspect was my high school classmate Rex Heuermann.

‘Married, two kids, architect. Average guy… quiet, family man. Mind-boggling… Massapequa is in shock.’

Heuermann went onto study architectural technology at the New York Institute of Technology, before getting his start in the business at Greer Construction Corp in Freeport, New York.

He married Elizabeth Ryan in 1990, but the couple has since divorced. He now has an Icelandic wife, a stepson and a daughter, Victoria, 26, from his second marriage.

Victoria works with her father at the architecture firm, RH Consultants & Associates, where he was arrested last night.

Heuermann founded the company in 1994 and its clients included American Airlines and ‘other major tenants’ at the JFK International Airport, according to an online biography.

The suspect’s neighbors were long wary of the mysterious architect. One, Mike Schmidt, said he would often shares beers with another neighbor and point at Heuermann’s home and remark: ‘He probably has bodies in there,’ according to the Times. 

Schmidt said that last Halloween, he finally resolved to break years of tradition by taking his children to trick-or-treat at Heuermann’s home, where he lived with his wife, daughter and stepson. The home that the suspect lived in as a child. 

He said that hulking architect opened the door to the kids and gave them each a plastic pumpkin packed with candy. Schmidt added that when he told his wife where the sweets came from, she made him throw them out. 

Earlier, neighbors described the suspect’s home as being ‘creepy’ and ‘dungeon-like’ in interviews with DailyMail.com. 

In his professional life, some painted Heurmann as an arrogant character. Paul Teitelbaum, who worked with Heuermann in a project involving a building in Brooklyn Heights remarked that he had a ‘swagger’ about him.

‘I’m the expert, you’re lucky to have me’ was Heuermann’s attitude, according to Teitelbaum. 

In 2022, Heuermann was involved in a bizarre incident in which he was accused of stealing clementines meant for children from a bowl in a Whole Foods supermarket. 

‘He took three and put them in his pocket, then he took more. I said: “Sir, those are for the kids,”‘ store worker Tara Alonzo told the Times. Alonzo said that Heuermann became so angry, a manager had to escort him out.

Alonzo said that the next time she heard about Heuermann was when she saw his face on TV following his arrest. ‘My co-worker said: “That’s the orange guy.”‘ 

Over the last decade or so, Heuermann has been involved in a series of lawsuits in which he’s taken people to court, accusing them of hitting him with their cars and causing him ‘serious and permanent injuries,’ reports CNN. 

The network’s report says that the cases were ‘settled or discontinued,’ a recent one is still open. 

During a deposition involving one of those suits, Heuermann said that he only sport he participated in was ‘competition rifle.’ 

CNN also revealed that Heuermann has issues with the IRS, at one point owing more than $425,000 in back taxes going back to 2005. As of October 2022, he repaid $215,078. 

He and his wife also owe over $81,000 to the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance.
