The disturbing notes that accused Gilgo killer Rex Heuermann kept about alleged murders

This week he was charged again for the alleged murder of Jessica Taylor And Sandra Costilla. They were all in their 20s when they died, and their bodies were found scattered on and around Gilgo Beach more than a decade ago.

The document presented in court reportedly included a “Things to Remember” section, in which Heuermann allegedly wrote notes to himself for “next time,” such as “hit harder,” along with a reminder to use heavier rope to use because “light rope broke under (stress of sharpening),” the New York Post reported.

The defendant’s use of the words “next time” was seen as an indication that he had more killings planned, according to the prosecutor, who wrote in a court filing: “The members of the Gilgo Homicide Task Force believe that these references to ‘next time’ reflect Heuermann’s past experiences and what changes need to be made in the future.”
