Neighbors of the suspected Gilgo Beach serial killer said he was ‘intimidating’ and was once caught running around with ‘girls’.
Jimmy Mack, who lives a few blocks from Rex Heuerman’s ‘dungeon-like’ home, has revealed his run-ins with the suspected killer to Newstimesuk.com.
He claimed he once caught her babbling about ‘girls’ at the end of his driveway when he was drunk and when he thought no one was listening.
Mack said that when she asked Heuerman what he was doing, he blasted her over her car and threatened to slash her tires.
Another neighbor, meanwhile, said they saw the 6ft 4in Heuermann ‘intimidating’ and once walked past him working in his garage and he never looked up.
Heuermann was arrested and charged with the murder of three of the ‘Gilgo Four’.

For the seventh day on Thursday, police were seen searching properties for ‘trophies’ that could be linked to the victims
The architect lived with his wife Asa Ellarup in a ‘dungeon-like’ Massapequa Park home just 18 miles from Gilgo Beach.
Mack, 51, who owns a trucking company and lives with his wife and three stepchildren, recalled a terrifying encounter with the human outside his Long Island home.
Heuerman was walking home from the LIRR station past Mack’s house on March 2, a regular route for the architect, when the men clashed.
Mack was smoking a cigarette on the porch around 10 p.m. and he told Newstimesuk.com that a man called Heuerman.
‘I’m sitting on my balcony and he can’t see me but I hear him say ‘oh here we go again… I told them I told the girls.’
Mack said Heuermann didn’t realize he was there and was startled. He appeared intoxicated and muttered to himself at the end of Mac’s driveway. Mac explained that he asked him, ‘Brother are you talking to my house?’
Heuerman replied: ‘Are you the **hole that owns this car?’ Aggressively adds that he will be back in 15 minutes to cut his tires.
Terrified, Mack said, ‘Either we go about our business now or I’ll never see you again’ and chased the man into his driveway.
Mack then followed his neighbor into his car, recalling that he felt that ‘something wasn’t right. I need to know where this man lives.’
Mack said the air of confrontation and discomfort he felt meant he ‘knew something was up for me to get back in my car and follow this guy home.’
Law enforcement loaded a pair of skates into a truck from Rex Heuerman’s home Thursday
The first victim, Melissa Barthelemy, 24, was discovered by Suffolk County police on Dec. 11, 2010. Megan Waterman, 22, was found two days later.
Maureen Brainard-Barnes was 25 when she disappeared (left). Amber Lynn Costello was 27 years old. Their bodies were found near Barthelemy on the same day
In addition to his cluttered home, Heuerman kept two storage units in Amityville. They were searched yesterday and today
He also said he confronted his neighbors and alerted them to where the man lived.
He remembers telling his friends and family ‘if anything happens in this house or anything, this guy’, adding ‘how much I knew there was something wrong with it.’
Another neighbor, who lives just around the corner from Heuerman and who wished to remain anonymous, said, ‘He was always tinkering in the garage or outside and was very intimidating.’
Once he walked by and saw Heuerman making a chair while wearing a leather apron and barely looking up.
Neighbors told Newstimesuk.com that the dog was often barking incessantly in the backyard.
Police believe at least one of the Gilgo Beach victims was killed at the suspected serial killer’s Long Island home.
Newstimesuk.com exclusively revealed Wednesday that detectives in South Carolina are reviewing a now nearly decade-old missing person’s case to see if Heuerman may have been involved.
Police in Rock Hill, just 20 miles from where Heuerman bought a wild 18-acre property, have confirmed they are re-examining the case of Aaliyah Bell Hall, who disappeared in 2014.
Rex Heuerman bought 18 acres of undeveloped land 20 miles from where Aaliyah disappeared. Now the family hopes police will search to see if any bodies were buried there
Land registry documents show that Rex Heuerman bought land in Chester worth $154,000 in 2021, with neighbors saying he planned to build a ‘compound’ with his brother, who lives on the property.
A spokesperson for the Rock Hill Police Department told Newstimesuk.com: ‘We have not been contacted by any other agencies. But we are reviewing the case and investigating any possible links or matching timeframes to Alia Bell’s disappearance with Rex Heurman.’
Law enforcement sources told CBS News that detectives are now looking into unsolved murders across the country to see if they are linked to Human, 59. He is the prime suspect in the fourth murder.
For the seventh day on Thursday, police were seen searching properties for ‘trophies’ that could be linked to the victims. Investigators are also looking at his timeshare in Las Vegas and a property he owns in South Carolina.
Newstimesuk.com previously spotted an investigator carrying a note with some of the evidence found inside, including a rope in a vault and handcuff keys on a shelf under a workbench.
Investigators are also searching two storage units connected to Humane and several boxes were seen outside one on Wednesday. Blue tarps and white tents have been placed outside the unit to cordon off the scene.
Police also revealed that Heuermann may have ties to Atlantic City, New Jersey, and expanded their investigation into a fourth state.
Police are investigating whether he worked in the area, and are interviewing sex workers in prison who had contact with him.
‘He was reaching out to them for sex,’ Suffolk County Police Department Sheriff Errol Toulon told Good Morning America of prostitution officials. ‘They took the phone but didn’t meet him.’
The update from law enforcement comes after revelations that the Gilgo Beach killings are similar to the ‘Eastbound Strangler’, who strangled four sex workers near Atlantic City, to murders in the area.
