Sick Rex Heuerman Wiki- Sick Rex Heuerman Biography
Sick Rex Heuerman When Dexter was leading a murderous double life in the smash-hit TV show, he covered his tracks completely.
No one knew he was part forensic investigator, part serial killer with an insatiable thirst for violence.
Top homicide prosecutor Matt Murphy has solved countless, bloody murders in a stellar 17-year career, and as he surveys the aftermath and prosecution of the Gilgo Beach murders, the California-based expert has a striking theory.
Architect Rex Heuermann, who stands accused of three murders and is the prime suspect of a fourth, seemingly evaded authorities in Suffolk County, New York, for more than a decade before being arrested in July.
He was charged with three counts of first-degree murder and three counts of second-degree murder after the bodies of four female sex workers were discovered in Gilgo Beach, New York, between December 2010 and December 2011.
Murphy, like everyone else who’s been stunned at the grisly events, was astounded at how the alleged killer stayed under the radar for so long.
Sick Rex Heuerman Age
Sick Rex Heuerman Age is 59 years old.
Charged with three murders and is tied to another
He points to the meticulous methods used in the sickening killings of Melissa Barthelemy, 24; Megan Waterman, 22; and Amber Costello, 27. Heuermann, who has pleaded not guilty, is also the prime suspect in the death of 25-year-old Maureen Brainard-Barnes.
“I think when all the evidence comes out, it will show the killer went to great lengths to avoid detection,” Murphy told The U.S. Sun at Crimecon in Orlando, Florida.
“If anyone has seen Dexter, they will have watched him gown up and take great care. I think Heuermann was doing something like that. It’s fascinating.”
Murphy explains that when forensic scientists investigate evidence found at murder scenes, there are two types of DNA that could be present.
The presence of nuclear DNA, present in blood or saliva for example, has a complete genetic profile, which effectively ties any crime to a suspect.
But mitochondrial DNA, which can be found in hair, teeth, and nails, doesn’t instantly provide the same kind of accuracy but remains a key part of any investigation like the shocking Gilgo Beach murders.
One of the victims, Waterman, was found with a strand of the 59-year-old’s hair, while all three of the victims Heuermann has been charged with killing were found with female hairs traced back to his wife, authorities claimed.
“It’s all mitochondrial in this case,” Murphy continues.
“The fact they made a case on hair, means they didn’t apparently have any nuclear DNA, which for a serial rapist is very rare.
“So, he’s almost certainly using condoms when he would rape victims or figuring out some other way to clean his nuclear DNA off.”
Murphy draws parallels with the case of Rodney Alcala, the dating game killer, which he worked on back in 2011.
Similar to the accused Heuermann, he evaded capture for a number of years before finally being pinned for the brutal killings of seven women between 1971 and 1979.
“He was a certifiable genius,” Murphy says of the twisted Alcala. “He was n’t contemplating the idea of DNA coming out. Heuermann is a smart guy too, he owns his architecture firm, and so absolutely, he’s thinking about all the ways he can cover his tracks.”
“Properly argued, it’s a great case against him” he added.
“Some of the most compelling evidence is the cell phones. How you’ll have the victim’s cell phone, his burner phone, and then his actual personal phone, all pinging off the same towers as he’s traveling between Long Island and Midtown Manhattan, where he worked.
“I think that’s really compelling.”
Urging the Mayor to do more, she pleaded: ‘We need help so we can deal with those that are most vulnerable,’ adding ‘otherwise all our lives are at risk.’
