Queens trial of ‘Duck Sauce Killer’s’ widow kicks off with focus on text about gun

The trial of “Duck Sauce Killer” Glenn Hirsch’s widow on weapons possession charges began Monday with prosecutors arguing a trove of firearms found in her home belonged to her.

At Queens Supreme Court, they pointed to a 2020 text from defendant Dorothy Hirsch’s brother to her as proof she owned the stash.

“Bring your 9mm when you come and we’ll do some training,” the missive stated.

The defense argued that the text was meant for Glenn Hirsch, not his widow.

“This defendant knowingly possessed eight illegal firearms and over 400 rounds of ammunition in her home where she lived alone,” Assistant District Attorney Kanella Georgopoulos said in her opening statement.

Dorothy Hirsch, 64, is charged with 18 criminal counts of violating city and state weapons possession laws — including possession of loaded guns.

The eight weapons were found during a search of her Briarwood apartment after Glenn Hirsch was arrested for murder. The defendant maintains that everything in that closet belonged to her husband, saying it was filled with only his belongings.

Detective Todd Keyes of the 112th Precinct testified that along with the guns, a traffic ticket in Glenn Hirsch’s name and men’s clothing were found in the closet.

“Items that belong to Glenn Hirsch,” Keyes said after reviewing what was written on the warrant to search Dorothy Hirsch’s home on June 1, 2022. “I do not see her name in this document.”

Speaking of the overall condition of Dorothy Hirsch’s home, Keyes described it as “not overly organized, but not a hoarder.”

“Not a hoarder, those are interesting words — are you aware Glenn Hirsch was a hoarder?” asked Mark Bederow, Dorothy Hirsch’s lawyer.

“I’m aware that he is someone that people referred to as a hoarder,” replied Keyes.

Keyes also said the closet in question was the only one of the five in the defendant’s home that was in a state of disarray.

But when cross-examined by Assistant District Attorney Thomas Salmon, Keyes said he had no idea who was responsible for the guns and other items in the hall closet.

While out on $500,000 bail, Glenn Hirsch shot and killed himself on Aug. 5, 2022, with a gun that had not been discovered during a police search of his home. In a six-page suicide note, he railed against the press and swore his estranged wife was innocent of any charges.
