Family members of the “Gilgo Four” victims finally have a glimpse into what may have happened to their loved ones based on a digital trail the accused serial killer allegedly left behind.
Court documents exposed that Rex Heuermann had interactions with sex worker in a 2020 text conversation, disturbing searches on rape and porn and would solicit sexual activity using selfie photos.
Suffolk County District Attorney Raymond Tierney says there were Google searches allegedly made by Heuermann for things like medieval torture, stories of rape and autopsy photos of a female.
Heuermann’s defense attorney Michael Brown says what the Massapequa Park man looked up does not make him guilty.
According to court documents, Heuermann would also search about the Gilgo investigation, cellphone tracking and family members of the victims.
There appears to be a pattern of attempting to “shred” digital evidence that connects Heuermann to the victims, according to investigators.
Prosecutors say Heuermann would use several phone numbers and emails, including sandbagger303@gmail.com and thawk080672@gmail.com.
