According to court documents, Roske traveled from his home in Simi Valley, Calif., to Maryland intending to kill Judge Kavanaugh, arriving at his residence in the early morning hours of Thursday, June 8, 2022.

Roske spotted two U.S. Marshals guarding the house and walked the other way, calling 911 to say he had suicidal thoughts and also planned to kill Kavanaugh, according to court documents.
