Gilgo Beach serial killer suspect Rex Heuermann is facing a new lawsuit after the New York State Department of Labor initiated legal action, claiming he failed to meet the payment terms he had agreed upon following violations of New York labor laws, according to officials.
According to court documents, Heuermann underpaid his executive assistant from 2017 to 2018. In a settlement, Heuermann and his architectural firm, RH Consultants and Associates, agreed to pay $84,945, New York’s Labor Commissioner Roberta Reardon stated.
Although Heuermann made an initial payment of $16,385 as part of the settlement, the lawsuit alleges that he never fulfilled the remaining $68,560. The Labor Department is now pursuing legal action to recover the outstanding amount.
Heuermann, 59, has been charged with the murders of three of the so-called Gilgo 4 — the women found dead on Long Island’s Gilgo Beach in December 2010 — and he is also the prime suspect in the death of the fourth, as Front Page Detectives previously reported.
