Gilgo Beach: Police remove evidence from home of suspected Long Island serial killer
Gilgo Beach suspected serial killer Rex Heuermann was distraught at his appearance last week following his explosive arrest, his lawyer said.
Heuermann, 59, is accused of the murders of three women who disappeared between 2007 and 2010, and is the main suspect in a fourth murder.
The suspect’s lawyer, Michael Brown, told ABC News that his client had been “traumatized” by his arrest on July 13.
Nothing seemed unusual about him. He was eloquent, intelligent, soft-spoken,” said Brown, who previously described Heuermann as a “loving husband and devoted father.”
Massapequa Park residents have also said The New York Times that Mr. Huermann, his wife, and their two adult children were unusually reclusive.
“I’m friendly to everyone here, but [his wife] I didn’t talk to anyone,” Frankie Musto told the Times.
The married father of two’s DNA has been entered into a state database and his alleged modus operandi is being matched against other cases, including those during the period he was allegedly active in Gilgo Beach.
Authorities in the state of New York, Connecticut and Las Vegas are now investigating possible links between Mr. Heuermann and other unsolved murders.

Following Huermann’s arrest last week, design director Niv Miyasota, 62, who has worked with the alleged killer for years, told DailyMail.com that Heuermann “seemed to have no empathy”.
“We used to butt heads sometimes,” Miyasota told the Mail. “I’m creative, so I wanted to keep my creative stance, and he would bring things back to reality.”
“He was socially awkward in a lot of ways… I guess the word for that is, he just didn’t seem to have empathy.
“It was kind of a cipher, like, what is this person? I didn’t get angry, kind or sad at him. I did not know what to say. I didn’t get the deal from him.
