Title: Billy Baldwin Discovers High School Classmate as Suspected Serial Killer
In a shocking revelation, actor Billy Baldwin recently learned that one of his high school classmates, Rex Heuermann, has been accused of being the notorious Gilgo Beach serial killer. Taking to social media, Baldwin expressed his disbelief, tweeting, “Woke up this morning to learn that the Gilgo Beach serial killer suspect was my high school classmate Rex Heuermann.” Both Baldwin and Heuermann graduated in 1981 from Berner High School in Massapequa, NY.
Describing Heuermann as an “average guy” and a “quiet, family man,” Baldwin provided further details about their shared background. According to the actor, Heuermann is married, has two children, and works as an architect. The news of their connection has left the Massapequa community in shock, inspiring Baldwin to speculate whether advancements in DNA testing technology, such as 23andMe, played a role in identifying Heuermann as a suspect. The actor’s comment sparked a discussion among his followers about the potential impact of public DNA profiles on solving cold cases or determining familial relationships.
While Baldwin refrained from sharing his personal impressions of Heuermann’s character, another source familiar with the alleged serial killer described him as “weird” and a “big talker.” Although Heuermann appeared sociable and made efforts to engage with others, those who knew him recalled unsettling behavior, including broken promises and odd habits. These accounts suggest that something had always seemed off about him.
The arrest of Rex Heuermann came after his DNA was found to match evidence collected from one of the victims, Megan Waterman. Law enforcement officials took him into custody on Thursday, charging him with first- and second-degree murder in connection with the deaths of the four women known as the “Gilgo Four.” The victims were discovered in 2010, their bodies wrapped in burlap near Gilgo Beach on Long Island.
The revelation of this unsettling connection between Baldwin and Heuermann serves as a sobering reminder that sometimes the most unimaginable horrors can be found closer to home than we could ever conceive. As the investigation unfolds, more details about the case and Heuermann’s alleged involvement will likely emerge, shedding further light on the chilling events that gripped the Long Island community ten years ago.
