The case against alleged Gilgo Beach serial killer Rex Heuermann has taken a strange turn. According to a report by ABC News, DNA from Heurmann's estranged wife, Asa Ellerup, matched DNA found on the victims.
However, prosecutors have ruled out Ellerup as a suspect because she was out of town when the murders took place.
Investigators reportedly found hair fibers on the burlap used to wrap the victims before they were dumped in a marshy area of Gilgo Beach on Long Island. The DNA from the hair matched the DNA taken from a cheek swab of Ellerup the night her husband was arrested.
Heuermann has pleaded not guilty to murder charges in the deaths of Melissa Barthelemy, Amber Costello, and Megan Waterman.
