Federal authorities say they have evidence linking Roy Den Hollander, who is accused of killing a New Jersey federal judge’s son and wounding her husband in a shooting, to the killing of a California attorney and men’s rights activist earlier this month, the FBI announced Wednesday.
Marc Angelucci, of Crestline, California, was found shot dead outside his home on July 11. The FBI said it has “evidence linking” Den Hollander to the murder of Angelucci, who, like Den Hollander, was an attorney who also routinely challenged selective service registration in the military. The investigation is ongoing.
The FBI has also identified Den Hollander as the suspect who went to U.S. District Judge Esther Salas’ North Brunswick home Sunday and killed her 20-year-old son and seriously injured her husband. Den Hollander had a case pending before Salas regarding the U.S. military’s male-only draft registration system, court records show.
According to CNN, friends of Angelucci said Den Hollander held a grudge against Angelucci because they both filed lawsuits challenging selective service registration only applying to men.
“Roy was furious and beyond words furious, absolutely enraged that (the National Coalition for Men) and Marc Angelucci were getting into the selective service case. He viewed that as something proprietary for him,” one friend said on a Facebook live video Monday night, according to CNN.
Den Hollander, who was a self-described anti-feminist lawyer, was found dead Monday from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in the New York town of Rockland.
According to CNN, Angelucci and Den Hollander were both members of the National Coalition for Men, though the organization’s president told the news network that he kicked Den Hollander out of the group in 2015 after Den Hollander threatened him.
