Federal Judge’s Son Killed, Husband Shot 4 Days After She Got Assigned Epstein Linked Case

A man dressed as a delivery driver opened fire on the home of federal judge Esther Salas yesterday. Her son was killed and her husband is in the hospital getting treated for his injuries.

Reports indicate Salas was in the basement at the time of the shooting. The shooting comes just four days after she was assigned a new case tied to Jeffrey Epstein.

The case is about Deutsche Bank and its failed anti-money laundering policies that specifically failed to monitor ‘high-risk’ customers including billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.

She also had some other high profile cases where she sent some members of violent street gangs to rot in prison for many years.

From The Daily Mail:

The son of a federal judge has been shot dead and her husband critically wounded after they were attacked at their home by a gunman dressed as a FedEx driver.

The attack happened at the home of Esther Salas, 51, an Obama-appointed District Court judge, in North Brunswick, New Jersey, on Sunday evening.

The judge’s 20-year-old son Daniel Anderl was killed, and her defense attorney husband Mark Anderl, 63, was critically injured.

Daniel is believed to have opened the door to the gunman at around 5pm. He was shot ‘in the heart’ immediately, according to friends of the family.

His father Mark was then shot several times when he went to the front door to see what had happened. The gunman fled.

Judge Salas had recently been assigned to a civil financial fraud case tied to Jeffrey Epstein. 

It was brought by Deutsche Bank investors who claim the bank made false and misleading statements about its anti-money laundering policies and failed to monitor ‘high-risk’ customers including convicted sex offender billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.

Earlier this month the bank agreed to pay a $150million fine for continuing to work with Epstein after he was convicted of soliciting underage prostitutes in 2008.

Judge Salas also sent TV stars Teresa and Joe Giudice from the Real Housewives of New Jersey to jail for tax evasion and fraud.

It’s unclear whether her husband is actively involved in any cases. 

Anderl was a prosecutor for 10 years before switching to private practice.

During his time in the prosecutor’s office, he tried more than 100 cases including 33 murder trials. 

Francis ‘Mac’ Womack, the mayor of North Brunswick, New Jersey, said that Daniel was ‘shot through the heart’.
