‘He had a fascination with those girls’: Gilgo Beach serial killer suspect hired petite women who looked like his alleged victims at architectural firm before doing menial work and ‘disrespecting them’, ex-worker claims
Human, 59, has been arrested and charged with the murders of three of the ‘Gilgo Four,’ Melissa Barthelemy, Megan Waterman and Amber Costello, a former employee of Humanman’s firm who only goes by the name of ‘Eric,’ who said he was ‘very well told that he’s not ‘knot-winding women,’ he ‘doesn’t knot women,’
A man who claims he worked for Gilgo Beach serial killer suspect Rex Heuerman says he would hire women who looked suspiciously like his alleged victims at his architecture firm.
Heuerman, 59, has been arrested and charged with the murders of Melissa Barthelemy, Megan Waterman and Amber Costello, three of the ‘Gilgo Four’ whose bodies were found on a Long Island beach in 2010.
A former employee at Heuerman’s firm who went only as ‘Eric’ said he had noticed in the past that he would hire short, petite women, under five feet, who ‘fit this description’ of the alleged killer’s victims.
‘It was almost like he had a fascination with the girls he worked with,’ he told the New York Post.
He noted that despite hiring them, Heuermann would be ‘very degrading to the women, not very nice’ and would make them do gofer jobs like fetching coffee and moving his car.
Eric, who worked ‘on and off’ for the alleged killer for decades in the late 1990s, also said that Heuermann once asked a colleague to research ‘masses’ in New York City strip clubs for purposes the worker never understood.
‘He always had this sinister look in his eyes,’ said Eric, adding that Heuermann often bragged about his firearms collection.
The former employee, whose emails showed he worked for Heuerman, called him a man who would hide behind his expertise.
‘He was a very good person, mixed and a regular, naive guy about his subjects. And that was his kind of cover,’ Eric said.
Eric, however, was not surprised that the ‘cheap’ Heuerman was arrested, noting that he ‘always had this sinister look in his eye.’
Heuerman was arrested and charged last week in the 2010 murders of three of the ‘Gilgo Four’, a group of women discovered near Gilgo Beach on Long Island.
He has pleaded not guilty to the murders of Melissa Barthelemy, Megan Waterman and Amber Costello.
The architect lived in a ‘dungeon-like’ house just 18 miles from the beach with his wife Asa Ellarup, grown daughter and stepson – who police said were away at the time of the murder.
Police were seen on Friday searching the property for ‘trophies’ that could be linked to the victims

Heuerman is the prime suspect in the 2007 disappearance and subsequent murder of a fourth woman, Maureen Brainard-Barnes, although he has not yet been charged in the case.
He is also being investigated for the 2011 murders of six other women near Gilgo Beach.
Detectives are now looking into unsolved murders across the country to see if they are linked to Humane.
For the seventh day on Thursday, police were seen searching his property 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.
