A man wearing a FedEx uniform approached the home of New Jersey Federal Judge Esther Salas and opened fire on her husband, leaving him wounded, before turning the gun on her son and killing him. Salas herself was in the basement at the time of the shooting.
Salas has a reputation for taking on cases involving gang members and other controversial cases, including the financial case concerning Jeffrey Epstein.
As you might imagine, this has the imagination of folks all around the country curious as to whether or not this has something to do with the powerful people involved in Epstein’s horrid human trafficking ring trying to keep things quiet.
This definitely doesn’t seem like a random attack, but like it was planned by someone wanting to send a message.
Here’s more from Fox News:
The shooting occurred at the North Brunswick, N.J., home of Judge Esther Salas, a source told The Associated Press. The AP report, citing the state’s chief district judge, said the son, 20, was killed. NJ.com reported that the shooting occurred at about 5 p.m.

The gunman posed as a delivery driver for FedEx, two sources told NJ.com. The report said that Salas, 51, was the first Hispanic female appointed to the U.S. District Court in New Jersey.
While it’s definitely suspicious timing involving Salas’ taking on the Epstein case, with her ties to gang cases it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that someone wanted a little payback and arranged this assault on her and her family.
In fact, Salas once sentenced a member of the Crips to 15 years in prison after said individuals pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute heroin. That’s plenty of motivation for a gangland strike. And gangs have more resources than you might think to be able to pull off such an assault.
However, that’s not to say this isn’t connected to the Epstein case at all. Hopefully, the gunman will be captured and information as to what really happened will come to the surface.
