Suspect in Murder of Judge’s Son Found Dead, Believed To Be Attorney With Ties to Judge

A lawyer who claimed to be battling feminism at every turn has been identified as the suspected gunman who shot to death the son of a New Jersey judge before taking his own life.

The body of Roy Den Hollander was found near Liberty, New York, according to The New York Times. Hollander had been suffering from terminal cancer.

The Times reported that police believe Den Hollander — dressed in the guise of a FedEx deliveryman — went to the New Brunswick, New Jersey, home of federal judge Esther Salas, whom he described in a self-published book as “a lazy and incompetent Latina judge appointed by Obama.”

Carlos Salas, the judge’s older brother, said authorities told him that Daniel Anderl, 20, the judge’s only son, answered the door and was shot through the heart. He was later pronounced dead.

Salas’ husband, Mark Anderl, was shot next when he went to investigate, Carlos Salas said. He is now in stable condition in a hospital.

The judge, who was in the basement of the home, was not injured.

Along with Den Hollander’s body, police discovered an empty package addressed to the judge.
