Esther Salas is the first Latina US District Court judge, nominated and confirmed in 2011. Her husband, Mark Anderl, is a criminal defense attorney. Daniel Anderl was a rising junior at Catholic University in Washington DC. Sunday night, Daniel and Mark answered the door to the knock of a man in a FedEx delivery uniform. The man opened fire, killing Daniel and injuring Mark. He then fled. A suspect in the case was discovered dead, apparently by a self-inflicted gunshot wound. There is some speculation as to why the house was targeted. Judge Salas was recently appointed to a case concerning Deutsche Bank and its involvement with the financials of Jeffrey Epstein, but there has not been any motivation linked to the shooting.
