Judge Salas Speaks Out for First Time Since Son’s Killing in Emotional Video Tribute: ‘My Family Will Never Be the Same’
Judge Esther Salas spoke out on Monday for the first time since her husband was wounded and her son was killed in their New Jersey home last month — lamenting that her family “will never be the same” and that she is living “every parent’s worst nightmare.”
“Two weeks ago, my life as I knew it changed in an instant, and my family will never be the same,” Salas said at the beginning of her nine-minute tribute. “A madman, who I believe was targeting me because of my position as a federal judge, came to my house.”
Salas explained that the gunman, later identified as Roy Den Hollander, had a complete dossier on her family, and knew where they lived and where they went to church.
