The shooter had a self-published book riddled with misogyny:
Officials revealed new details about the alleged gunman who ambushed the family of a federal judge overseeing a Jeffrey Epstein case.
New York-based attorney Roy Den Hollander, the man believed to have shot and killed the son U.S. District Judge Esther Salas, has butted heads with Salas in the past.
After searching his home just north of New York City, police said they found a self-published book containing misogynistic rhetoric. In the book he discussed his hatred towards women, including his own mother.
He also took aim at Judge Salas in the publication and referred to a case they were both involved in back in 2015. Den Hollander went on to call her a “lazy and incompetent Latina judge appointed by Obama.”
During her time as a federal judge, Salas has overseen a list of high profile cases, most recently including the case against Deutsche Bank regarding its involvement in the handling Epstein’s financial matters.
Police said Den Hollander visited her home in New Jersey Sunday evening disguised as a FedEx truck driver. Her husband, criminal defense attorney Mark Anderl, reportedly answered the door and was met with gunfire. That’s when officials said their 20-year-old son Daniel ran to the door before being fatally shot by the suspect.
A targeted hit. This should be interesting.
A dragnet of federal, state and local law enforcement is on the hunt for the gunman who fatally shot a federal court judge’s son and wounded her husband – all while disguised as a FedEx worker – at their New Jersey home Sunday night, officials announced Monday.
U.S. District Judge Esther Salas’ son, 20-year-old Daniel Anderl, was killed and her husband, defense lawyer Mark Anderl, 63, is in the hospital after the men were shot in the doorway of their North Brunswick home around 5 p.m. Sunday, officials have said.
Salas was in the basement at the time and wasn’t injured, according to the Associated Press. Daniel, a college student, was her only child, officials said.
……Salas, seated in Newark, was nominated by Obama and confirmed in 2011. Prior to that, she served as a U.S. Magistrate Judge in New Jersey, after working as an assistant public defender for several years.
……More recently, Salas, 51, was tapped to preside over an ongoing lawsuit brought by Deutsche Bank investors who claim the company made false and misleading statements about its anti-money laundering policies and failed to monitor “high-risk” customers including convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
