Anti-feminist lawyer 'who shot dead Epstein judge Esther Salas' son was hunting foes after cancer diagnosis'

AN anti-feminist lawyer who allegedly murdered the son of federal judge Esther Salas was suffering from terminal cancer and had promised to "wrap up his affairs."

Roy Den Hollander, who killed himself after the shooting, was dressed as a Fedex driver when he allegedly shot Daniel Anderl, 20, through the heart at his family home in New Jersey on Sunday.

Den Hollander, who also allegedly shot and injured Salas' husband Mark Anderl, 63, in the attack in New Brunswick, was named as the suspect by multiple police sources, reports The Daily Beast.

The alleged murderer, who slammed the judge, 51, in a self-published book he wrote this year, was found dead in his car near a campsite in the Catskills, it has been reported.

He has driven some 148 miles from where the deadly assault happened before reportedly turning the gun on himself.

In writings posted online, Den Hollander derided judge Salas – who had been assigned to a case linked to Jeffrey Epstein days before the killing – as having traded on her Hispanic heritage to get ahead.

A package addressed to the judge was found along with his body, officials said.

In another section of his online rant, that resembled an early draft of a memoir, he wrote about being treated recently for cancer and wanting to use the rest of his time to "wrap up his affairs."

Den Hollander, a prominent mens rights activist, had information about another judge, New York Chief Judge Janet DiFiore, on him when he died, a state court spokesperson said.

He was involved in a lawsuit, filed in 2015, that was being heard by Salas involving a woman who wanted to register for the men-only military draft.

Den Hollander also wrote of posing as a FedEx delivery person to speak with a young girl, the same tactic the gunman apparently used in the shooting.

In more than 2,000 pages of often misogynistic, racist writings, Den Hollander criticized Salas' life story of being abandoned by her father and raised by her poor mother as being “the usual effort to blame a man and turn someone into super girl.”

According to the Associated Press, he also wrote: “No more chances now, if there ever really were any, for glory and fortune, but maybe a little old time justice as in all those 1950s television westerns I watched as a kid when the lone cowboy refused to give up without a fight, he wrote.

“The only problem with a life lived too long under Feminazi rule is that a man ends up with so many enemies he cant even the score with all of them. But law school and the media taught me how to prioritize."

He filed for bankruptcy in 2011, citing more than $120,000 in credit card debt, as well as rent and other expenses.

In the filing, Den Hollander estimated he made about $300 a month from his work, with the bulk of his income coming from a $724 monthly Social Security payment.

Salas, born in California to a Cuban immigrant mother and Mexican father, spent most of her childhood in Union City, New Jersey

Her husband Mark remains in hospital and is in a critical condition after being shot several times when he opened the door to the killer.

Salas, seated in Newark, was nominated by President Barack Obama and confirmed in 2011.

Prior to that, she served as a US magistrate judge after working as an assistant public defender for several years.

Her son Daniel was set to be heading back shortly to The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC, where he was named to the Deans List this spring.

The attack came days after the federal judge was assigned a case linked to pedophile financier Epstein.

According to Bloomberg, Deutsche Bank is accused of misleading investors "about anti-money-laundering deficiencies," including failing to properly monitor high-risk customers, that included Epstein.
