The investigation into the Gilgo Beach murders and suspect Rex Heuermann has expanded from New York into both South Carolina and Nevada, officials said.

The Sheriff’s Office in Cehster, South Carolina, confirmed they received a request to seize a Chevrolet Avalance belonging to Rex Heuermann, WABC reported.

According to the station, the suspected Long Island serial killer owns four lots he recently purchased in the area.

WABC also reports Heuermann has a connection to Las Vegas that law enforcement there is investigating.

“We are currently reviewing our unsolved cases to see if he has any involvement,” the Las Vegas Metro PD said in a statement.

Detectives in the New York City area also continue their search of Heuermann’s property, including storage units, and checking if his DNA, recovered on a pizza crust, is a match with forensic evidence collected in other cold cases.

As Front Page Detectives previously reported, Heuermann, a married father of two, was charged with three counts of first-degree murder in connection with the deaths of Melissa Barthelemy, Megan Waterman, and Amber Costello. He is accused of dumping their bodies along a remote beach highway in Long Island located across a bay from his home in Massapequa.

He is also a suspect in the murder of a fourth victim, Maureen Brainard-Barnes, but he has not been charged in that case.

All four women were found in 2010 along Ocean Parkway.

A total of 11 bodies were found in the Gilgo Beach area between 2010 and 2011.

Heuermann, through his lawyer, denied he had anything to do with the killings.

He was being held without bail.
