Philadelpha Judge Found Dead at NJ Shore Home, Apparent Suicide
By Mike Dunn

VENTNOR, N.J. (CBS) — Philadelphia’s legal and political community is mourning the death of Common Pleas judge Adam Beloff, whose body was found at his Ventnor, NJ home on Saturday after an apparent suicide.

US congressman Bob Brady (D-Phila.), who runs the Democratic City Committee, calls the death of Judge Beloff a tragedy.

“He was very classy guy, a real nice man,” Brady said today.  “I had a lot of conversations with him.  He said he had his dream job, and he was extremely thankful.”

Ventnor police on Saturday responded to a call from the judge’s home on Wellington Avenue and found him dead at the scene.

Beloff, 48, was serving his first term as a Common Pleas judge, presiding over cases in the criminal division.

Before becoming a judge, he shared a practice with his wife, Hope Beloff, specializing in family law.  Reports say he is distantly related to former Philadelphia city councilman Leland (Lee) Beloff.

Brady said Adam Beloff was hard-working and “a very good judge.”   He said he knew Beloff had had “a little bit of a domestic issue,” but thought it was being worked out.

Autopsy results were pending.

District Judge Gay Elwell found dead in her Easton home

Coroner was called to College Hill home Monday. He’ll rule on cause, manner of death.
December 03, 2012|By Frank Warner, Of The Morning Call

District Judge Gay L. Elwell, a magistrate for Easton since 1996 and a former Morning Call reporter, was found dead Monday in her Easton home, her secretary said. She was 54.

“We’re all in shock,” said her secretary, who identified herself only as Linda. She said police in mid-afternoon informed Elwell’s Easton staff of the death.

Elwell’s secretary said she did not know the cause of Elwell’s death or exactly when she died.

Northampton County Coroner Zachary Lysek confirmed the death. He said he will rule later on the cause and manner of death. He was called to Elwell’s College Hill home Monday afternoon.

Elwell was the wife of city artist Karl Stirner.

It was the second death in the Elwell family this year. Elwell’s brother, Jonathan, 44, was found dead near Iowa railroad tracks on June 19, two months after he left his Berks County home for a vacation. Officials were unable to rule on the cause of his death.

Jonathan’s death weighed heavily on Elwell. According to friends, over the weekend she talked about her brother, who lived in Shillington, and she still wondered how he died. Elwell also had a heart problem, one friend said.

Close friend Joanne Moore of Kintnersville said Elwell suffered chest pains in late October and went to her doctor for a battery of tests.

“They found nothing,” Moore said, adding that Elwell was prone to supraventricular tachycardia, a rapid heartbeat that can cause chest pain, but which might disappear long enough to be missed by medical tests.

OLYMPIA, Washington — A man knocked on the door of Thurston County District Court Judge Brett Buckley’s home, tossed an unknown clear liquid into the face of the judge when he opened the door and then walked away without saying a word, authorities said Tuesday.

Buckley initially felt no reaction from the liquid when the incident occurred at about 9:25 p.m. Monday, but later went to the hospital with irritated skin. He was released after treatment.

“At this point we have no idea whether he was attacked because he is a judge, or something in his personal life, or whether it was just a random attack completely,” Olympia police spokeswoman Laura Wohl said. “The individual who did throw the substance said nothing and have no indication as to why he was choosing Judge Buckley as his victim.”

The judge, who handles mostly misdemeanor criminal cases and heads up the mental health division, told police, he didn`t recognize his attacker, and no one in his courtroom has been particularly upset with a verdict.

A deputy has been shot and a judge attacked at Grays Harbor County courthouse in Washington state

A man who stabbed a judge and shot a sheriff’s deputy in a western Washington courthouse remained at large Friday afternoon after authorities determined that a man who was taken into custody afterward wasn’t the suspect.

“So far, we have not positively identified anyone” in the incident, which happened about noon local time (3 p.m. ET) at the Grays Harbor County Courthouse in Montesano, a town of 4,000 people 100 miles southwest of Seattle, Grays Harbor County Undersheriff Rick Scott told reporters, adding: “We do not have a suspect in custody.”

About an hour after the attack, authorities converged with weapons drawn on a house in Montesano where they believed a suspect, whom they initially identified as Michael Thomas, was holed up. They threw a gas canister toward the house and then advanced on it.

At about the same time, the Washington State Patrol told NBC station KING-TV of Seattle that Michael Thomas had been taken into custody on unrelated charges in the city of Tumwater, about 40 miles away.
