How shocking. We are all surprised buy this development aren’t we?
Last night’s killing in North Brunswick has dominated the news cycle on Monday as numerous ‘experts’ have stepped forward to denounce the connection between the shooting and a civil suit against Deutsche Bank that Judge Salas had recently been charged with overseeing.
Now, authorities are telling media that the suspect in the shooting has been found dead via suicide in Liberty, NY.
That’s an unexpectedly morbid turn. But there’s more: The suspect was a white man (remember, lower-case “w” for white) who wore a face covering and a FedEx uniform, law enforcement sources told ABC News, and he used an ordinary car to make a getaway.
But here’s the real twist. Though his name hasn’t been released, authorities said the suspect was an attorney who once argued a case before Judge Salas, back in 2015. Police told reporters that they suspect the suspect killed himself with a self-inflicted gunshot.
Here’s more from ABC:
The suspect was later found dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound near Liberty, New York, multiple law enforcement sources told ABC News. A municipal employee discovered the body in a car.
The deceased suspect was an attorney who had a case before Judge Salas in 2015, sources said. A FedEx package addressed to Judge Salas was discovered in the car, sources said.
“As a judge, she had threats from time to time, but everyone is saying that recently there had not been any,” said Mayor Womack, who is personal friends with the judge and her husband.
FedEx Spokesman Jim Masilak said in a statement, “We are aware of the media reports and are fully cooperating with investigating authorities.”
It sounds plausible enough. However, in a world where everything with even the most remote connection to Epstein inspires intrigue and suspicion, we wouldn’t be surprised if the authorities’ eventual report produces more questions than answers.
In addition to the FBI, the New Jersey State Police, the North Brunswick Police and the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s office are also involved in the investigation, which isn’t over yet, apparently. The US Marshals have been called upon to provide a detail for the judge.
