A child-sized doll was discovered in alleged serial killer's Gilgo Beach residence

Saturday, authorities discovered a child-sized doll while searching the childhood residence of Rex Heuermann, the alleged serial killer from Gilgo Beach, New York.

LongIsland.com reported that the doll was in a wooden and glass exhibit case and had blonde hair with a red bow to complement its red outfit, according to a report by Breitbart News.

An image depicts officials wearing blue gloves as they remove the crate containing the doll from the home: “We are thoroughly examining his residence for any potential evidence, including trophies,” a police source involved in the search noted.

Additionally, cat food, a cat scratch pole, a framed photograph, and an empty bookcase were removed from the residence.

Breitbart News reported on Friday that the suspect has been identified and arrested after authorities spent over a decade attempting to locate him.

During the initial investigation, it was determined that hairs discovered on or near some of the victims did not belong to any of the victims, but rather to Heuermann's wife.

The individual was identified in part by DNA found on a pizza crust he discarded in a New York City trash can.

In addition, the suspect's vehicle assisted investigators in locating him, as a witness in the disappearance of one victim told authorities about a Chevrolet Avalanche believed to be driven by the suspect.

Three counts of first-degree murder have been brought against Heuermann, an architect from Massapequa in Nassau County who is married and has two children.

“Shannan Gilbert was the first of 11 victims found killed,” the Breitbart News report said,

They went on to note that authorities found 11 sets of human remains on a highway in Suffolk County after police launched a search for Gilbert when she vanished in 2010.

CBS New York detailed the circumstances surrounding the “Gilgo Four” deaths:

Jessica Taylor's remains were discovered on Ocean Parkway in March 2011, along with those of 24-year-old Valerie Mack, an infant female, and a man in April 2011.

In addition, two additional skeletal remains were discovered in Nassau County.
