There is an update on the story of the man who shot a judge’s son and husband, killing the son. They have found the gunman and he is dead from what police say is a self inflicted gun wound.
The shooter had shown up at the judge’s door and the husband answered it.
He was shot several times and the son was standing behind the father after coming in to see what was going on and he was shot dead. US District Judge of New Jersey, Esther Salas was in the basement at the time of the shootings and that may have saved her life.
The body of attorney Roy Den Hollander was found in Sullivan County near the town of Rockland.
That is a little town near Liberty, NY in the Catskill Mountain region. He is believed to have been the shooter. He had just started a GoFundMe page, claiming to have cancer.
A packet marked with Judge Salas’ name on it was found near the body. There was a second envelope with Judge Janet DiFiore’s , the chief judge of the state of New York on it.
Police have now briefed DiFiore about the contents of the package. They have not said what was in the packets.’
They are doing a ballistics test on the gun found near the body to see if it is the one used in the double shooting. Police are still trying to determine the motive in the shooting. Den Hollander was a notoriously anti-feminist men’s rights attorney. Oh, so he was like the peaceful protesters the Democrats always laud?
