A portrait of a woman featuring a battered face seized by cops bears an eerie resemblance to a Long Island woman who was murdered after moving to Las Vegas.

Authorities have confiscated a plethora of items from the house of Rex Heuermann—including a portrait of a woman featuring a battered face that bears an eerie resemblance to a murdered Las Vegas woman.

The portrait closely mirrors the photographs of Lindsay Marie Harris, a native of Long Island who disappeared soon after relocating to Las Vegas from Long Island.

Days after Rex Heuermann, the alleged Gilgo Beach serial killer, purchased a timeshare in Las Vegas, Harris, suspected to be a sex worker, was brutally murdered.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is currently investigating Heuermann for potential links to this and other cold cases, as Your Content previously reported.

The unsettling portrait seized by law enforcement at Heuermann’s home depicts the face of a blond woman, characterized by dark pupils and noticeable bruising beneath her eyes, a photograph taken by The New York Post showcases.

The haunting image above eerily resembles Long Island’s own Lindsay Harris.

Harris vanished from her home in Henderson, Nevada, on May 4, 2005. She was last seen at a local bank, making a deposit. Her rental car was later found deserted at the southern tip of the valley, and there had been no activity on her credit cards. In November that year, a feature about Harris’ disappearance was aired on America’s Most Wanted.

Harris’s terrifying murder left law enforcement in two states baffled, eventually leading the case to go cold.

Four years prior to the New York murders, Heuermann and his wife, Asa Ellerup, purchased a two-bedroom, two-bathroom condominium in Nevada in April 2005.

A fortnight later, on May 23, 2005, children found human legs in a grassy field a few hundred yards off Interstate 55 in Divernon, Illinois, situated 15 miles south of Springfield.

Last week in Manhattan, Heuermann was taken into custody, facing charges for the murders of Melissa Barthelemy, Megan Waterman, and Amber Costello. Their remains, shrouded in burlap, were discovered along Ocean Parkway on the South Shore of Long Island in December 2010. In addition, the police have identified him as the leading suspect in the demise of Maureen Brainard-Barnes, a fourth woman found in the same area.

“We acknowledge Rex Heuermann’s connection to Las Vegas,” said the Las Vegas Metro Police Department in a statement Tuesday. “We are currently assessing our unsolved cases for any potential involvement.”

South Carolina police are also involved in the investigation, conducting a search of a remote property owned by Heuermann and his brother, ABC News reported.

“During the investigation and prior to the arrest, the Chester County Sheriff’s Office was enlisted by the Gilgo Beach Task Force to assist in collecting evidence in Chester County relevant to their investigation,” the South Carolina department announced on Facebook on Monday.

“The Chester County Sheriff’s Office will continue to collaborate closely with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Suffolk County law enforcement authorities during this significant and demanding investigation,” the sheriff’s office added.

Though it was suspected that Harris was killed by Neal Falls, who was suspected to have killed up to 8 women, nothing significant came to fruition.

Harris’ case is still under investigation.
