Is the Shooting of Judge Esther Salas’ Son & Husband Connected to Death of Epstein’s Private Banker?

July 20, 2020 – Federal Judge Esther Salas’ son was murdered and her husband is in critical condition, after being shot multiple times at the family home in New Jersey, multiple sources are reporting.

ABC News reports, in an article entitled “Federal Judge’s Son Killed, Husband Injured in Shooting at North Brunswick Home; Suspect Later Found Dead“:

The son of a federal judge in New Jersey was killed and her husband injured in a shooting at their home in North Brunswick on Sunday, and the man believed to be the suspect was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound Monday.

Judge Esther Salas’ 20-year-old son Daniel was shot multiple times and died at the scene, while her husband — criminal defense Attorney Mark Anderl — is in critical but stable condition at the hospital after undergoing surgery, North Brunswick Mayor Francis Womack said.

A body later found at Campsite and Berry Brook roads in Rockland, New York, is believed to be the suspect. He is believed to be a lawyer, leading investigators to believe the judge’s husband was the intended target.

‘A brazen and cowardly act of gun violence at their home in North Brunswick,’ Governor Phil Murphy said. ‘We give our full support to Judge Salas and her husband at this most trying time. This is an unconscionable tragedy.’

Judge Salas, who is the first Latina to serve on the federal bench in New Jersey, was in the home at the time but was not hurt.

Police said the gunman was wearing a face covering and a FedEx uniform, posing as a delivery driver when he arrived at the family home around 5 p.m. Sunday. Authorities say Daniel Anderl opened the door and was immediately shot, with the gunman then wounding Mark Anderl before fleeing the scene.

There was no FedEx truck involved, and the suspect used an ordinary car to make a getaway, sources said.

Just last week, Salas was appointed to hear an ongoing lawsuit brought by Deutsche Bank investors who claim the company made false and misleading statements about its anti-money laundering policies and failed to monitor ‘high-risk’ customers including convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Her highest-profile case in recent years was the financial fraud case involving husband-and-wife ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ reality TV stars Teresa and Joe Giudice, whom Salas sentenced to prison for crimes including bankruptcy fraud and tax evasion. Salas staggered their sentences so that one of them could be available to take care of their four children.

In 2017, she barred federal prosecutors from seeking the death penalty against an alleged gang leader charged in several Newark slayings, ruling the man’s intellectual disability made him ineligible for capital punishment. Salas later sentenced the man to 45 years in prison. – ABC News

The FBI announced that they will be investigating the case, and the alleged suspect is already dead. The article claims that sources said Judge Salas had received “threats” in the past, but did not indicate if they were connected to a certain case. She is now under 24-hour U.S. Marshall protection.

Investigative researcher Redpill78 has been researching this death as well.

Judge Salas is connected to Senator Menendez who is notoriously corrupt.

This seems disturbingly similar to a previous case, the death of Jeffrey Epstein’s private banker Thomas Bowers.

In December 2019, we at Patriots’ Soapbox reported on Bowers’ death in an article entitled “Jeffrey Epstein’s Private Banker at Deutsche Bank & Citi Found Hanging, Immediately Ruled a Suicide“:

Multiple reports have surfaced that Jeffrey Epstein’s personal private banker has been found hanging. Corporate banker Thomas Bowers, who ran the U .S. division of private wealth management for Deutsche Bank AG and handled loans for Epstein allegedly with Citi purportedly committed suicide last month by hanging himself…

Jeffrey Epstein’s private wealth banker, who brokered and signed off on untold multiple millions of dollars in controversial Deutsche Bank and Citibank loans spanning two decades for the convicted pedophile, has died from a reported suicide.

The news of yet another mysterious Epstein-linked death comes shortly after the FBI was seeking to interview the bank executive about loans he approved for Epstein and the indicted child trafficker’s labyrinth of US-based and offshore companies.

The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner confirmed Thomas Bowers died by an apparent suicide by hanging at his home before Thanksgiving.

Epstein likewise died from a reported suicide by hanging, according to the New York City Medical Examiner.

Bowers headed the private wealth banking division for Deutsche Bank and signed off on millions in loans to Epstein. Bowers, prior to taking over the private banking arm at Deutsche Bank, served in the same top position at Citibank, as the head of the bank’s private wealth arm. Citigroup also made massive loans to Epstein, according to records and banking sources who spoke to True Pundit.

Deutsche Bank has long been rumored to be the bank of choice for white collar criminals and cartels involved in money laundering and shady deals. In fact, Deutsche Bank has been fined millions of dollars in relation to these schemes. Most recently they have been under investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice for their alleged role in the Danske Bank scandal.

Epstein moved millions of his personal wealth through Deutsche Bank before his death. He switched to Deutsche Bank in 2013 after his conviction for child sex crimes when even JP Morgan would no longer do business with him. Following investigations into civil cases exposing the extent of Epstein’s criminal network by the Miami Herald, Deutsche Bank finally began to close his accounts.

Even though Epstein allegedly refused to pay Citi back for the loans they gave him, Bowers continued to do business with him because of his elite connections. He also reportedly traveled to Epstein’s private island, Little St. James, and was a frequent visitor to Epstein’s lavish New York City home.

‘Epstein made Bowers and his financial institutions hundreds of millions of dollars,’ one banking executive told True Pundit. ‘It really didn’t even matter that Epstein stiffed Citi for $30 million in defaults because he brought so much new money, new blood in. Citi made far more than it lost.’

Anything that Bowers may have been able to divulge about Epstein’s network died with him. Loose ends are being tied up, and the powerful individuals who Epstein provided with illicit child sex services have to be breathing a sigh of relief as a result. – Patriots’ Soapbox

Was this shooting of Judge Salas’ family in their home intended to “send a message” to disallow discovery in the Deutsche Bank case?

Not everyone agrees that this could be connected to Jeffrey Epstein.

Well respected professor and legal scholar Jonathan Turley has condemned what he calls “reckless speculation” regarding the motives behind the shooting of Judge Salas’ family.

While another researcher on twitter admonished people to look into other similar cases:

There was a disturbing similarity in what happened to Judge Lefkow’s family and the Salas shooting. There is also this chilling effect one must consider. The purpose of this shooting may have been a message to federal judges in general, any who may be thinking about opposing the Mafia and human traffickers.

ABC News has not updated their reporting yet to reflect the most recent reports coming from Fox News that the suspect may have been an attorney who has been found dead, north of New York City.

A man possibly involved in the fatal shooting of a federal court judge’s son in New Jersey was found dead in New York’s Sullivan County on Monday afternoon, according to multiple reports.

The man, an attorney from New York City, is being investigated in connection with the shooting, a law enforcement official and a judiciary official told The Associated Press. The man had appeared before the judge in the past, the officials said.

Trooper Steven Nevel, a spokesperson for New York State Police’s Troop F, told Fox News the FBI was on the scene in the town of Rockland to determine if the body found there was linked to the shooting at U.S. District Court Judge Esther Salas’ home in North Brunswick. – Fox News

If indeed this man perpetrated the crime at Judge Salas’ home, it is no longer possible for investigators to question him about his actions.

L is another investigative researcher who has been looking into the case.

Recent allegations concerning America’s largest banking juggernauts have explored their reliance on money laundering since the financial crisis of 2008.

This could be part of a much bigger scandal regarding the financial sector, which means it requires more investigation before running on assumptions.

The latest from KTLA, which is a local news outlet from Southern California:

The Conservative Treehouse has reported on the shooting as well.

Intelligence analyst and advisor Eric Garland believes this is connected to money laundering for the Russian Mafia.

Another Danske Bank connection.

For context, we must also mention her previous sentencing of a notoriously violent member of a cartel:

Then of course, there is the alleged gunman, and the strange connections there:

If true, these allegations are very disturbing.

While these connections are very concerning, we still do not know for sure that this is indeed the shooter. It seems like a really convenient way to wrap the case up. There are cartel, Epstein, and Russian mafia connections.We also cannot at this juncture say for certain that this case is connected to the “suicide” of Epstein’s private banker Thomas Bowers. However, there is more than enough circumstantial evidence to call for the assignment of an independent special prosecutor to look into all cases that will branch off from the Epstein case and all potentially related matters. This developing case is still on-going, with confirmed details being released thus far very few. We will continue to report on this case as it develops.
