Who is Rex Heuermann, the Massapequa resident detained in connection with the killings at Gilgo Beach?

Suffolk County police, sheriffs and New York State Police gathered outside Heuermann's home all Friday morning.

Heuermann said he has been working in the city since 1987 and he has worked extensively with the Department of Buildings.

Since human remains were found along Gilgo Beach more than a decade ago, the case has drawn immense public attention for many years

The unsolved killings gained even more national interest when they became the subject of the 2020 Netflix film “Lost Girls.”

The deaths of 11 people whose remains were found in 2010 and 2011 have long stumped investigators.

Young sex workers made up the majority of the victims. Near the village of Gilgo Beach, several of the bodies were discovered.

The investigators have stated multiple times throughout the years that it is doubtful that all of the victims were slain by a single individual.
