The arrest of Jeffery Epstein’s alleged madame Ghislaine Maxwell likely struck fear into the hearts of many powerful politicians and celebrities, causing theories that a rash of “suicides” may crop up ahead of her trial.
On Sunday, a gunman posing as a Fed-Ex driver entered the home of Federal Judge Esther Salas — who recently took on a high-profile case involving Epstein’s finances — and opened fire, fatally injuring Salas’ son and wounding her husband. Salas was in the basement at the time and escaped unharmed. The suspect in the fatal shooting is a lawyer from New York, and he was just found dead in a vehicle from a “self-inflicted gunshot” on Monday morning.
The New York Post reported on Monday:
The gunman suspected of killing the son and wounding the husband of a federal judge in New Jersey before taking his own life in New York’s Catskills has been identified as lawyer and men’s rights activist Roy Den Hollander, federal sources said.
Hollander — whose website details “anti-feminist cases” and calls for clients to “help battle the infringement of Men’s Rights by the Feminists” — was found dead in the town of Rockland, NY, on Monday, according to sources.
Hollander had a case pending before Salas, challenging the military’s men-only draft, according to The Daily Beast, which first reported his involvement in the case.
Attorney General Bill Barr offered his condolences to Salas on Monday and announced that he has ordered an investigation into the tragic event. “On behalf of the entire Justice Department, I send my deepest condolences to Judge (Esther) Salas and her family on the death of their son and wish her husband a swift and complete recovery,” Barr said in a statement.
“This kind of lawless, evil action carried out against a member of the federal judiciary will not be tolerated, and I have ordered the full resources of the FBI and U.S. Marshals Service to investigate the matter.”
According to the AP, “Salas has presided over an ongoing lawsuit brought by Deutsche Bank investors who claim the company made false and misleading statements about its anti-money laundering policies and failed to monitor “high-risk” customers including convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.”
