Arrest of architect Rex Heuermann, accused of murder of three women, brings relief and fear to residents of Massapequa Park

The arrest of the 59-year-old Long Island architect Rex Heuermann, accused of the murder of three women, has brought relief to residents of Massapequa Park, a suburban town seven miles from Gilgo Beach where the remains of 10 adults and a child were found more than a decade ago.

“Everybody stopped going to the beach at night. It was an intense vibe that someone was committing serial crimes on the island,” recalled Alexandra Calabro, 26, on Friday, standing steps away the small single-story home in the commuter town where Heuermann lived.
