Man found dead possibly linked to shooting of Federal Judge Esther Salas’ family

A man found dead in New York’s Catskills may have been behind the shooting of federal Judge Esther Salas’ son and husband in New Jersey, police sources said Monday.

The man was found on Monday in Rockland, New York with apparently a self-inflicted gunshot wound, sources said.

Details about the deceased, including his identity and age, were not immediately available.

The FBI and police were headed to the scene to investigate a possible connection between the man — and a gun found nearby — to the bloody attack on a district court judge’s home in North Brunswick, NJ, sources said.

An assailant dressed as a Federal Express deliveryman came to the home’s door around 5 p.m. Sunday, and opened fire as soon as Judge Esther Salas’ son, Daniel Anderl, opened up.

The gunman also blasted Anderl’s husband, prominent attorney Mark Anderl, 63, authorities have said.

The younger man was killed, while the older was hospitalized in critical condition.

Salas, believed to have been in the basement of the home at the time of the attack, was not injured.

She has worked on several high-profile cases, and was recently assigned a class-action suit from Deutsche Bank investors who claim the company failed to monitor “high-risk” customers including late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
