Written by kslmadmin on July 19, 2020
A gunman – who dressed as a FedEx delivery driver— fatally shot the 20-year-old son of a federal judge on Sunday and injured her husband at the family’s New Jersey home and the FBI said it has taken the lead in the investigation, reports said.
The shooting occurred at the North Brunswick home of Judge Esther Salas, a source told the Associated Press. The AP report, citing the state’s chief district judge, said the son, 20, was killed. NJ.com reported that the shooting occurred at about 5 p.m.
“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.
Her husband, defense lawyer Mark Anderl, 63, was injured, the AP reported. Salas was in the basement at the time and wasn’t injured, the report said.
The gunman posed as a delivery driver for FedEx, two sources told NJ.com. The report said that Salas, 51, was the first Hispanic female appointed to the U.S. District Court in New Jersey.
Daniel Anderl, a college student, was the judge’s only child, the AP reported.
Her highest-profile case in recent years was the financial fraud case involving husband-and-wife “Real Housewives of New Jersey” reality TV stars Teresa and Joe Giudice, whom Salas sentenced to prison for crimes including bankruptcy fraud and tax evasion. Salas staggered their sentences so that one of them could be available to take care of their four children.
