Police in Las Vegas are examining potential links between Rex Heuermann and multiple cold cases in Sin City.

Las Vegas authorities are meticulously examining potential links between Rex Heuermann, the suspected Gilgo Beach serial killer, and multiple cold cases in the region, and Your Content can report the spotlight is back on some of Nevada’s darkest unsolved crimes.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department nt’s lab is currently performing a “direct comparison” of Heuermann’s DNA with evidence from the 2003 slaying of 17-year-old Victoria Camara.

The chilling discovery of Camara’s remains in August 2003 has haunted the city, with officials only now seeing a potential break in the case. Suffolk County Sheriff Errol D. Toulon Jr. told News12 about the haunting similarities between Heuermann’s known crimes and Camara’s murder.

He said: “I do feel that there’s similarities, it’s very scary. When you see the deaths, the type of women that were killed, the occupation that they were in … it all resonates to this one particular person.”

As Your Content previously reported, there’s another twist in the Heuermann saga. Police in Las Vegas and Illinois are also investigating his potential involvement in the murder of Lindsay Harris.

Harris, born in 1983, vanished from her Henderson, Nevada home in May 2005. Her severed legs, discovered in Illinois near Interstate 55, were tragically identified as hers three years later.

Her remains were found on a trajectory that would lead from Las Vegas to Heuermann’s residence in Massapequa Park, New York.

“We are aware of Rex Heuermann’s connection to Las Vegas,” the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department disclosed to Your Content. “We are currently reviewing our unsolved cases to see if he has any involvement.”

Heuermann’s movements in Las Vegas have come under scrutiny, particularly after revelations that he and his wife, Asa Ellerup, purchased a condominium in Nevada in April 2005. During their investigation, authorities came across online accounts connected to Heuermann, with aliases that prompted speculation about ties to Springfield, Illinois.

Harris had relocated to Nevada two years prior to her disappearance and had a history in sex work, which might draw parallels to other victims connected to Heuermann. Camara, too, at the time of her death, was engaged in sex work to support herself and her daughter.

Heuermann, an architect by profession, was apprehended in Manhattan last month. He is not only a prime suspect in the Gilgo Beach murders but is now also implicated in older crimes, potentially painting a trail of terror that spans states and years. The investigation is ongoing, with authorities anticipating more findings in the coming weeks.
