(GoRealNewsNow.com) – A New York City architect suspected of being the serial killer and committing the 2010 Gilgo Beach murders has turned out to have performed services for former President Donald Trump’s business empire, according to reports.
The suspect, 59-year-old Rex Heuermann, a married father of two, was arrested on July 13 near his office, AP and Newsmax report.
He has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of second-degree murder over the deaths of three women – Melissa Barthelemy, 24, Amber Lynn Costello, 22, and Megan Waterman, 27.
Heuermann is also suspected in the murder of Maureen Brainard-Barnes, 25, the first of the “Gilgo Four” victims.
All four young women’s remains were discovered within days of one another in December 2010, wrapped in burlaps and tossed in the marshes near Gilgo State Park in Long Island.
Last Friday, Rex Heuermann pleaded not guilty to all charges. He is held at the Suffolk County Correctional Facility and is on suicide watch.
In October 2018, the serial murder suspect’s architectural firm, RH Architecture, did a plumbing job for the Trump Organization, a filing with the NYC Department of Buildings reveals.
According to the filing, the project on the 17th floor of the Trump Building at 40 Wall Street was projected to cost $205,017.00.
The document lists the Trump Organization’s property management VP, Steve Lafiosca, as the owner and Rex Heuermann as the applicant.
Heuermann’s firm is based at 19 W. 36th St., which is believed to be the same Fifth Avenue haunt spot where he was detained last week.
Late Wednesday afternoon, the Trump Organization issued a statement declaring that Heuermann never worked with the company.
“Mr. Heurmann [sic] never worked for The Trump Organization in any capacity. According to our records, he was hired by a third party commercial office tenant who vacated years ago, to perform minor architectural work in their individual space,” a Trump Organization spokesperson said.
According to The New York Times, former President Donald Trump bought the 40 Wall St. building from Kinson Properties in 1995 for less than $8 million.
According to reports, he has claimed to have purchased it for as little as $1 million, and a 2012 article by TheRealDeal quoted him as saying it was worth up to $1 billion.
