A suspect has been arrested in connection with multiple murders in the Gilgo Beach area of Long Island, N.Y.

NBC News reports that authorities took Rex Heuermann, 59, into custody on Friday morning. He is due in court later in the afternoon.

Suffolk County police and the Suffolk County district attorney reportedly declined to comment on the latest development when contacted by the outlet. The DA and other law enforcement officials are said to be conducting a press conference at 4 p.m. local time.

Per NBC, Heuermann is from Massapequa, Long Island, not far from where most of the bodies were discovered in Suffolk County.
