Lawyer Suspected Of Murdering Judge’s Son Volunteered For Trump’s Campaign
The lawyer suspected to have shot U.S. District Judge Esther Salas’ son and husband had previously volunteered for Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, according to Newsweek.
- Roy Den Hollander was a men’s rights lawyer who has been described as “anti-feminist.” He is the primary suspect in the shooting death of Daniel Anderl, Salas’ 20-year old son, and the wounding of her husband Mark Anderl, who were both the victims of a shooting attack at their Brunswick, New Jersey home.
- Den Hollander was found dead in the Catskills of an alleged self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was revealed to have volunteered for Trump’s campaign through the 2,000+ pages of writing he posted online, also revealing many thoughts that are racist and misogynistic.
- He writes about "leaving the law library in the early afternoon for Trump Tower, 12 blocks up Fifth Avenue, to make telephone calls during the primaries and the general election," and being afraid to publicly show support for Trump, saying "I won't wear my red 'Make America Great Again' hat in the streets of NYC."
- In his writings, Den Hollander described Salas as a "lazy and incompetent Latina judge appointed by Obama” and claimed that she only got into college and law school through “affirmative action.”
- Attorney General William Barr has stated that the FBI and U.S. Marshals will continue the investigation into the shooting:
"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."
