Suspect In Shooting Of Federal Judge’s Son And Husband Found Dead

The man suspected of shooting the husband and son of US District Court of New Jersey Esther Salas on Sunday at her North Brunswick home has died by “suicide,” according to authorities, CNN Reports.

The gunman showed up at judge Sala’s home dressed as a FedEx driver and shot her son, killing him, and critically injured her husband before fleeing. The incident happened four days after she was assigned a case linked to Jeffrey Epstein.

According to investigators, the judge’s 20-year-old son opened the door to the family’s North Brunswick home at about 5 p.m. Sunday and was immediately shot. Her husband was then shot multiple times.

Investigators don’t yet know the motive for the crime.

Both the US Marshals and FBI are investigating the shooting and were working to find the suspected gunman. Initial reports from law enforcement said Daniel Anderl opened the door with his father right behind him. The door opened to a hail of gunfire and the gunman fled, according to the report.

The suspect’s body was discovered in Liberty, New York. He died of what is believed to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, two law enforcement offers told CNN.

It is not yet known whether the gunman was a FedEx employee or someone posing to be an employee.

“We are aware of the media reports and are fully cooperating with investigating authorities,” Jonathan Lyons, a spokesman for FedEx, said in an email statement.
