Gilgo Beach serial killer suspect Rex Heuerman was hired by former President Trump for $200,000 in architectural work on one of his most prized properties on Wall Street.
As first reported by The Real Deal, a 2018 filing with the New York City Department of Buildings shows that the Trump Organization hired the alleged serial killer in 2018.
Human’s company, RH Consultants & Associates, was hired for the job on the 72nd floor of the Trump Building on Wall Street in Manhattan’s financial district.
According to the filing, the architect’s firm was hired to ‘renovate the office space on the 17th floor to include minor partition and plumbing changes.’ The estimated total cost of the work is just over $205,000.
Heuerman, 59, was dramatically taken into custody on the street last Thursday night on suspicion of some of New York state’s most gruesome and unsolved murders.

Former President Trump reportedly paid less than $8 million for the property, which was previously the tallest building in the world.
Steve Lafioska, named as vice president of property management for the Trump Organization, is listed under owner information in the documents.
The 1930 building was once the tallest in the world and was first purchased by a former president in 1995 for less than $8 million.

Heuerman was dramatically arrested outside his Fifth Avenue farm in midtown Manhattan last Thursday, 13 years after the discovery of four bodies on Gilgo Beach, all wrapped in camouflage burlap sacks.
In total, 11 bodies, including a child, were found along the same stretch.
He is accused of killing three Gilgo Beach victims – Melissa Barthelemy, Megan Waterman and Amber Costello. He pleaded not guilty.
He is also considered the prime suspect in the death of a fourth woman, Maureen Brainard-Barnes.
Her body was found wrapped and hidden in thick underbrush along a remote beach highway, and authorities have not ruled out further murder charges.
Since his arrest last week, investigators have been searching his Long Island home and removing evidence.

Neighbors previously said the suspected serial killer was always terrifying, leading some adults to instruct their children to avoid their suburban home.
A neighbor, Étienne Devilliers, said Wednesday that Heuermann peeked over their fence to watch his wife sunbathe when they first entered.
He said that at first he thought Heuerman was ‘just being friendly’, but later the conversation between the two was ‘unpleasant’, although he was always ‘friendly and pleasant’ after the incident.
He stopped, did not argue with me. In the middle of a conversation he would say “me, 6ft4, 200lbs”. The man was eccentric but never violent,’ he said.
He described Human’s wife as ‘equally odd’ and ‘very withdrawn’ and mostly kept to herself.
Another Massapequa resident who lives three blocks away said Heuerman was often seen commuting into town on the Long Island Rail Road.
‘I saw him on the train, he looked different – he’s not a little guy,’ said Ricky Tavella.
‘It is very sad. I can’t stand that this man’s house is in my neighborhood.’
