Attorney suspected in fatal attack on Judge Esther Salas’s family may have been seeking revenge after cancer diagnosis; eyed in recent killing of another lawyer shot by fake FedEx driver

The attorney believed to have killed a federal judge’s son and critically wounded her husband filled thousands of pages online with complaints about feminists as well as racist and misogynist comments and sexual fantasies about the jurist, NBC News reported.

Roy Den Hollander, 74, allegedly disguised himself as a FedEx delivery man Sunday and traveled to US District Court Judge Esther Salas’s New Jersey home, where he opened fire, killing 20-year-old Daniel Anderl and sending 63-year-old Mark Anderl to the hospital, where he is in critical but stable condition, as CrimeOnline previously reported. Hollander was found dead of an apparent suicide Monday in the Catskills town of Rockland.

Salas was reportedly in the basement at the time and was unharmed.

The New York Post said an envelope addressed to Salas, who was overseeing a 2015 case brought by Hollander challenging the military’s men-only draft as unconstitutional, was found next to his body.

Online, Hollander wrote about the beginnings of that case.

“The case began over the July 4th weekend of 2015, and was assigned to this hot Latina Judge in the U.S. District Court for New Jersey whom Obama had appointed,” he wrote. “At first, I wanted to ask the Judge out, but thought she might hold me in contempt.”

His opinion of Salas changed, however, and he wrote of her as “a lazy and incompetent Latina judge appointed by Obama” and belittled her resume.

“Salas worked as an associate in an ambulance chasing firm doing basic criminal work,” he wrote. “Left that firm to work as a public defender in the New Jersey District Court representing lumpen proletariat ne’er-do-wells. Joined 135 politically correct organizations trying to convince America that whites, especially white males, were barbarians, and all those of a darker skin complexion were victims.”

Hollander’s attorney website says that he was seeking clients to “help battle the infringement of Men’s Rights by the Feminists.” NBC reports that he was also active in anti-feminist and misogynist Facebook groups, including groups called Humanity Vs. Feminism and Men Going Their Own Way.

On another of his many websites, he wrote of a “feminist infested American judicial system,” “feminarchy” and “Obamite bigots,” referring to judges appointed by former President Barack Obama, NBC said. On another, he threatened retribution against the government for what he considers a “Feminazi infestation of government institutions.”

According to the Post, Hollander sent an email to journalists in January with the subject line “How Not to Treat a Dying Man,” claiming that he was “painfully dying from metastasized cancer and and suing New York-Presbyterian Hospital, his doctor, and the hospitals lawyers under the RICO Act.

The manifesto suggested Hollander may have been seeking revenge on his perceived adversaries after his diagnosis.

“Death’s hand is on my left shoulder.. nothing in this life matters anymore,” Hollander wrote in the manifesto, according to the New York Post.

“The only problem with a life lived too long under Feminazi rule is that a man ends up with so many enemies he can’t even the score with all of them.”

According to the Post, quoting the New York Times, investigators were also looking into whether Hollander was connected to the death of another men’s rights attorney in California. Marc Angelucci was also shot to death by a gunman in a FedEx uniform.

Salas, the first Hispanic woman to serve as a federal magistrate in New Jersey, was assigned to a class-action lawsuit against Deutsche Bank four days before the attack on her family. The lawsuit claims the bank failed to adequately monitor “high-risk” customers, including the late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
