A gunman wearing a FedEx driver’s uniform came to the home of a federal judge connected to high-profile cases, one involving Jeffery Epstein, killing her son and leaving her husband in critical condition after they answered the door to the assailant, according to news reports and law enforcement officials.
Judge Esther Salas is linked to federal court cases involving Jeffery Epstein, and oversaw cases involving the reality TV couple the “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” as well as very dangerous gangs that operated the state.
The killings are now being investigated by the FBI and occurred at the families North Brunswick home around 5 p.m., according to reports.
Salas’s husband was defense lawyer Mark Anderl, 63. According to reports he survived but was left seriously injured and is in critical condition at a local hospital. Judge Salas was in the basement at the time of the shooting and was not injured in the shooting, according to Fox News.
According to local New Jersey reports, Daniel Anderl , was the judge’s 20-year-old son and a student at Catholic University in Washington, D.C.
Salas is presiding over an ongoing lawsuit brought by Deutsche Bank investors. According to the lawsuit, Deutsche Bank failed its due diligence to abide by its anti-money laundering policies and reports state the bank failed to monitor “high-risk” customers, like convicted sex offender Epstein.
“The FBI is investigating a shooting at the home of Judge Salas. We are working with our local and state partners,” Doreen Holder, the public information officer for the bureau’s Newark office, told Fox News.
