NORTH BRUNSWICK, NJ – A bizarre incident that involved the family of Judge Esther Salas, a federal judge in Newark who is overseeing a court case involving the late Jeffrey Epstein unfolded last night, claiming the life of her son and sending her husband to the hospital.
Police say a gunman entered Judge Salas’ home and shot and killed her son Daniel Anderl, 20, and her husband Mark Anderl. Mark Anderl is now recovering in the hospital and is listed in critical but stable condition.
The suspect wore a FedEx uniform and face mask according to law enforcement sources. The incident happened at 5 p.m. Sunday when the victim knocked on the door of the family’s home in North Brunswick. The gunman opened fire on Mark Anderl then shot and killed his son Mark.
Judge Salas was assigned last week to oversee a lawsuit brought forth by investors of Deutsche Bank over its financial dealings with now deceased and accused child sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein.
CBS reported moments ago the gunman was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound outside a vehicle in Liberty, New York. His body was found by a municipal employee. Sources claim the man was a lawyer who had a case before Salas in 2015.

We’re looking for one subject & ask that anyone who thinks they may have relevant information call us at 1-973-792-3001,” the FBI said in a statement.
