Neighbors are reacting to people descending on their community for a second search at the suspected Gilgo Beach serial killers home.
“We want it to actually stick, if he actually did it. We don’t know if he actually did it, so when it all comes out, if it is him, it’s all justified,” said Heuermann’s next door neighbor.
The original investigation at Heuermann’s home back in July was 12 days, and the most recent search lasted for six days.
On Sunday, the search wrapped up and Heuermann’s daughter Victoria returned home.
Robert Macedonio, an attorney representing Heuermann’s estranged wife, went into the home after investigators left, and says the primary place that was gone through was the basement - - and the kitchen and bedrooms were essentially left untouched.
Macedonio said, “Last year when they returned, the entire premises was turned upside down, there was pipes cut out of bathrooms, none of that occurred this time.”
It is still unknown what probable cause the Suffolk District Attorney’s Office had to obtain a second search warrant to go into the home - - but for now the family is able to return.
Heuermann’s wife and son have not come back from vacationing to South Carolina. Her lawyer says she plans on being at his next court date which is June 18 for a status hearing.
