Meet Craig Heuermann, Long Island Serial Killer Rex Heuermann Brother
Long Island serial killer Craig Heuermann was the son of Theodore and Dolores Heuermann. Besides Craig, the couple also shared another son named Craig Heuermann.
Suffolk County District Attorney Ray Tierney confirmed that Rex is under arrest in a news conference on July 14, 2023. “These young women went missing between July 2007 and September 2010. They were found in September 2010 by the Suffolk County Police Department and then there was nothing, absolutely nothing. For the next 13 years, their cases went unsolved. Until today,” Tierney said.
According to NBC News, Rex Heuermann’s attorney, Michael J. Brown, told reporters that Heuermann maintains his innocence and called the accusations “extremely circumstantial in nature.” “The only thing he did say, as he was in tears, was ‘I didn’t do this,'” Michael said, according to NBC News. “He’s distraught. He’s clearly distraught about the charges here.”
But you’ll be surprised to know that Rex pleaded guilty to “criminally negligent homicide of a man” when he was 22.
Court documents show that Craig was once accused of causing a head-on crash in Massapequa that killed a man named Winnion Buskey. Winnion’s obituary, obtained through Newpapers.com, says he was a captain. A Newsday article from 1988, also accessed through Newspapers.com, says Winnion was a captain for the city housing police.
A 1988 article in The New York Daily News says Winnion was driving to a bowling league. “Mr. Heuermann was charged with various offenses as a result of the accident and pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide and one of two counts of driving while intoxicated,” the documents say.
They note: “The cause of this accident was the negligent driving by an intoxicated driver. The evidence showed Mr. Heuermann had a blood alcohol level of .20, twice the legal limit (see, Vehicle and Traffic Law § 1192), and a blood cocaine level of .05 milligrams. Obviously, this was a man who should not have been driving.”
Rex and Craig Heuermann shared a home on First Avenue in Massapequa Park where they were both raised. Rex made the decision to resume his work as an architect in spite of the horrifying accusations and Craig’s subsequent incarceration. He eventually acquired the family house in 1994.
