Serial Killer Suspect Rex Heuermann’s Family Working with Peacock on Documentary

Rex Heuermann has been housed in the Suffolk County Correctional Facility since his July arrest for the deaths of three women.

Asa Ellerup, his estranged wife, filed for divorce six days later. Since then she has not visited Heuermann, until now. Bob Macedonia, Ellerup’s divorce attorney, confirmed  Asa Ellerup met with Rex Heuermann at the Suffolk County Jail. No word on how the meeting went or what was said.

She has now also attended a court hearing for the accused Long Island Serial Killer. A crew for the Peacock network accompanied her after the family signed a deal worth at least 1 million dollars to take part in an upcoming documentary.

We’ve also learned that Heuermann has become a pen pal behind bars, writing to another serial killer, the “Happy Face Killer.”

In the early 90s, Keith Jesperson, a long hall truck driver, killed many women. When someone else took credit for one of his murders, he started sending letters to the media and police with information only the killer would know. He put a “happy face” on each of his letters and was dubbed the Happy Face Killer.

DailyMail reports that Jesperson wrote a letter to Heuermann encouraging him to confess and offering some advice. Rex Heuermann reportedly writes back, thanking the Happy Face Killer for the advice, and then complains about the food in jail and the exercise yard.
