Asa Ellerup, the wife of suspected Long Island serial killer Rex Heuermann, has issued a plea for privacy amidst international coverage of her husband.

Asa Ellerup, the wife of suspected Long Island serial killer Rex Heuermann, has issued a plea for privacy amidst the ongoing investigation into her husband’s alleged crimes. The statement was released on Sunday through her attorney, Your Content has learned.

The legal firm Macedonio & Duncan, representing Ellerup in her pending divorce case against Heuermann, issued the statement. “Ms. Ellerup declines to comment on the status of her matrimonial case,” said Attorney Vess Mitev. “Nor can she make any representation with regard to her husband and accused Defendant Rex Heuermann.”

The statement further highlighted the immense personal turmoil Ellerup and her children are experiencing. “Our client and her children are enduring a profound and indescribable catastrophe,” the statement read. “On behalf of our client, we thank the public, press, and media for respecting their space and privacy in this maelstrom.”

Ellerup also expressed concern for her elderly neighbors, who have been affected by the constant police presence and media attention. “They deserve to live peacefully; they should be able to walk their dogs and go to the grocery stores without cameras shoved in their faces,” she said. “I am pleading with you all to give us space so that we may regain some normalcy in our neighborhood.”

As previously reported by Your Content on July 19, Ellerup has initiated divorce proceedings against Heuermann amidst shocking allegations of his involvement in multiple murders.

Heuermann, a New York City architect, has been charged with the killings of Melissa Barthelemy, Megan Waterman, and Amber Costello. The victims’ bodies were discovered wrapped in burlap along Ocean Parkway on Long Island’s South Shore in December 2010. Heuermann is also the primary suspect in the death of Maureen Brainard-Barnes, whose body was found in the same vicinity.

Heuermann had been under intense scrutiny for approximately a year prior to his arrest outside his Midtown Manhattan office. Authorities decided to move in ahead of schedule due to growing apprehension about his potential to harm again.

What’s more, police in Las Vegas are currently investigating Heuermann for potential links to a cold case and other unsolved murders. Just days after Heuermann bought a timeshare in Las Vegas, a young woman was brutally murdered, leaving law enforcement puzzled and the case eventually went cold.

Authorities are meticulously examining evidence collected during the search of two storage units in Amityville, near Massapequa Park, an area where Heuermann has spent his entire life. His residence, which he has occupied since the 1980s, is also under forensic scrutiny, as investigators systematically removed items since his arrest.

The series of murders on the South Shore of Long Island sparked concerns of a serial killer in 2010 when the first body was found. Over the course of a year, the remains of seven more women, a man, and a toddler were discovered in the same general area. The varying conditions of the victims and the history of the wooded areas along Ocean Parkway suggested the possibility of multiple killers.
