A female client of suspected Gilgo Beach serial killer Rex Heuerman has revealed how he made some ‘bone-chilling’ comments to her about the murders after giving her a lift home.
Heurman was working with the woman on the Brooklyn brownstone project for about a year until 2022 when the Crown Heights property was finally sold to an unnamed celebrity.
Heuerman appears to have made specific comments about the details of the murders, including how he believed it was an odd choice for the killer to wrap the women’s bodies in burlap.
Heuerman also personally dealt with real estate agent Jeffrey St. Aromand on the woman’s behalf.
‘He took her home once because he actually moved to Long Island,’ said St. Aromand, adding that the path home was ‘dark and desolate.’
‘On that drive, they actually had a conversation about the murder,’ explained St Aromand. ‘And the first thing he said – and he said this specifically to me – the first thing he said was, “I don’t know why he would use a burlap net.” And she was like, “I don’t know either.”
A female client of realtor Jeffrey St. Aromand, pictured, who worked with suspected Gilgo Beach serial killer, Rex Heuerman, has shared uncomfortable details about her interactions.
Several areas of Rex Heuerman’s home can be seen covered in blue, and the basement entrance was completely covered by two blue tents in Massapequa Park on Monday.
Manhattan architect Rex Heuerman, 59, is charged with three murders attributed to the Gilgo Beach serial killer, and is the prime suspect in the killing of a fourth victim.
The client, who wished to remain anonymous, recalled her interactions with Human to the New York Post.
‘I was just with him at my house to review the scope of work. I even gave him a ride from Brooklyn to his house on Long Island. At one point on the drive we talked about the Gilgo Beach massacre — we even discussed burlap and why anyone would use it. In retrospect, thinking about that conversation, it’s just bone-chilling.’
He said the comments and behavior seemed ‘strange’.
‘Throughout the transaction he was becoming very difficult to work with, even belligerent at times. He constantly argues with the working plumber and questions his work. Very strange behaviour,’ she said. ‘For some reason in this transaction he kept saying, ‘I’m not doing anything to get a fine or open an investigation into my license.’
St. Aaronmand told how the woman collaborated with Heuerman on a Brooklyn brownstone project for about a year until 2022 and gave him a ride home to Long Island.

The woman was so disgusted by his behavior that she asked Heuerman not to come when it came time to close the property.
‘When we were finally able to close on the property, I had such a bad experience with Rex that I asked him not to attend the closing. He still had to pick up the balance of the payment, and he went to the attorney’s office separately to pick up the check,’ he said.
Speaking on Monday, St Aaronmand said the woman was ‘furious’ after hearing of Heuermann’s arrest.
‘He is very angry. He really supported her. He needs the weekend just to decompress,” he added.
‘She’s someone who really supported this guy,’ St Aromand said of her client. ‘He always spoke highly of her in his work.’

Earlier on Monday, DailyMail.com published exclusive photos showing Heuerman having a few pints and mingling with colleagues at a social gathering at Pete’s Tavern, a pub in Manhattan’s Gramercy Park neighborhood.
Heuerman, who runs RH Consultants & Associates, was arrested outside his Manhattan office last Thursday night, leaving colleagues ‘shocked’ by the sudden break in the unsolved Gilgo Beach murders.
The married father of two, who lived in Massapequa Park, Long Island, has been charged with the murders of Melissa Barthelemy, Megan Waterman and Amber Costello, whose bodies were found in 2010.
Miyasota is one of several colleagues who have now come forward in their encounters with the alleged killer who managed to fly under the radar of investigators for nearly two decades.
In her interview with DailyMail.com, she also recalled the eerie sight of Heuermann’s car, which was cluttered with discarded wrappers, boxes and coffee cups.
DailyMail.com published an exclusive photo of Heuerman having a few pints and mingling with colleagues at Pete’s Tavern, a pub in Manhattan’s Gramercy Park neighborhood in 2005.
Several former colleagues have recalled their encounters with the ‘strange’ and ‘socially awkward’ architect who is now accused of murdering at least three women in 2009 and 2010.
Heuerman, who runs RH Consultants & Associates, was arrested outside his Manhattan office on July 13, after investigators made a sudden break in a years-long cold case.
‘It was filled with rubbish, stacked up to the top of the dash,’ he said. ‘I just thought what would happen.’
The vehicle’s description echoed that of Heumann’s neighbors, who said his home was also in disarray.
Miyasota was also aware that Heuermann had several guns and firearms.
Colleagues assumed he was stockpiling weapons in preparation for some kind of apocalypse, but did not suspect he could be violent.
A female colleague, who worked in his office for years, also told DailyMail.com that Heuermann has made no secret of his love of firearms, telling supporters when hunting and eating deer at the gun range and in the woods. Venison from his kill.
He was awkward, but not shy, he explained. He loved waxing about his work and showing off his skills.
“He was a bit of a narcissist,” said the woman, who did not want to be named.
‘He liked to talk about himself, you know, shouldering himself for all his achievements, that he was an architect, that he knew the building code well.’
‘He was socially awkward, but he loved to talk,’ she added. ‘Certainly he was not lonely. If you see him standing in line somewhere, he’ll strike up a conversation.’
Heuerman had lived on his Massapequa Park, Long Island property with his wife, Asa Ellarup, and their two children since 1980.

Interior designer Kathryn Shepherd, 47, worked with suspected serial killer Rex Heuerman, 59, for five years, including a 2005 project on his Massapequa Park home.
But this former co-worker never visited her home or went out with her socially, said Heuermann, who usually doesn’t mix her professional and personal life.
‘He kept professional and personal life completely separate,’ he said. ‘I worked together in the office with him and we’d go to client meetings, and that was it.’
At least four long-barreled firearms, as well as several blue plastic boxes with weapons in them, were seen carrying at least four long-barreled firearms from Human’s ‘dungeon’-like Massapequa home Sunday morning, days after his arrest.
And in an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com earlier Monday, interior designer Kathryn Shepherd, who has worked on projects with Human, recalled that he once refused to let her into a locked room in his basement in 2005 when she was appraising the property.
Heuermann planned to renovate the kitchen but also wanted precise measurements of the rest of the house, for which he enlisted Shepherd.
He went into the room to take measurements and she followed him downstairs.
‘In the basement, this one room was locked, and he said I couldn’t go into that room,’ she told DailyMail.com.
‘I was – what the hell? It’s boring. And he kind of joked, like, oh you can’t go there because there’s stuff. And then he said, “I’ve got a bunch of guns.”

‘He was weird about it, and I was, like, fine,’ Shepherd told DailyMail.com. ‘I could measure around it.’
He remembers finding his reaction strange at the time and now wonders what else he could have hidden in the 12’x15′ space.
‘I couldn’t understand why she was so weird about it, and now I’m wondering ‘what was she hiding?’ ‘ said the shepherd.
‘It was a big room. What was happening in that room? Is that where he took the women?’
Shepherd describes how he developed a friendly, working relationship with the architect who even once took him to a firing range in the Bronx where he taught him how to fire a 9mm handgun.
On another occasion when she fell on the ice, Heuerman took her to a hospital and then back to his apartment in Manhattan where he gave her medicine.
Shepherd worked with Heuerman from 2002 to 2007 and shared office space with him for those two years in Manhattan.
As a freelance interior designer she regularly traveled with him to job sites. At the time she found him smart and mostly friendly and called him ‘socially awkward’ like many of his peers.
