Police said Monday that the suspect in the shooting of a New Jersey judge’s son and brother has been found dead with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The suspect was found in Rockland, N.Y., with a gun at the scene. Police are investigating whether it was the same one used to kill Judge Esther Salas’s 20-year-old son, David Anderl, and wound her husband, Mark Anderl at their home in New Brunswick, according to a New York NBC affiliate.
Salas, an Obama appointee who was the first Latina U.S. district judge in the Garden State, was in the basement at the time of the shooting.
In a statement Monday, the FBI said it had identified Roy Den Hollander, now deceased, as its prime suspect in the shooting. Den Hollander had a case challenging the military’s all-male draft pending before Salas at the time of his death, according to court documents.
