Gilgo Beach serial killer suspect Rex Heuermann may be last person seen with missing South Carolina woman.

Heuermann, 59, has been charged with the murders of three of the so-called Gilgo 4 — the women found dead on Long Island’s Gilgo Beach in December 201. He is also the prime suspect in the fourth victim's death, as Front Page Detectives previously reported.

Officials in Las Vegas, where Heuermann owned a timeshare, are investigating five unsolved murders that could be linked to Heuermann. He also owns property in Chester County, South Carolina, which is about 100 miles north of Sumter County.
