The notorious ‘duck sauce killer’ filled his apartment with hundreds of boxes, trash bags and documents in his hoarder home, new court documents reveal.
Glenn Hirsch, 51, from Jamaica, in Queens, killed himself earlier this month ahead of a court hearing appearance after being bailed out of jail on a $500,000 bond.
He was accused of murdering Zhiwen Yan, a father-of-three, who he allegedly shot in the chest while Yan was fulfilling deliveries for a Chinese restaurant on his scooter in Forest Hills.
Hirsch, who was believed to have had several run ins with the restaurant before, is accused of shooting Yan before fleeing the scene on April 30.
New pictures submitted to the court show cardboard boxes piled to the ceiling in his small apartment, where he lived alone.
Entire rooms were filled with trash bags, plastic boxes of documents, old newspapers, CD’s and a globe
Sources previously claimed that his entire refrigerator was packed with sweet and sour duck sauce, with the rest of the apartment being completely filled with other junk.
Before his death, his wife Dorothy, 62, was also arrested because police found weapons wrapped in aluminum foil stashed inside a closet in her apartment in New York City.
In a letter to the court today her attorney Mark Bederow, for Bederow Law, claims that the new photos of Hirsch’s apartment prove that his wife would have known nothing about the eight firearms in her home.

A lawyer for Dorothy Hirsch claims that her husband's 'unique' hoarding style should prove that she did not have any knowledge the guns were in her property
Court documents state that Hirsch’s ‘unique manner of hoarding’ in his own home is identical to the way the guns were stored in Dorothy’s apartment
He claims that Hirsch’s ‘unique manner of hoarding’ in his own home is identical to the way the guns were stored in Dorothy’s apartment.
The court document read: ‘These photographs prove that – just as he stored his belonging in his closed at Dorothy’s apartment – Glenn hoarded his possessions in large black trash bags and cardboard boxes, which he then heaped on top of each other.
‘Fundamental fairness requires that you make the grand jury aware of evidence that Glenn stored his possession in the exact manner the firearms were discovered in the closet he maintained at Dorothy’s apartment.
‘Glenn’s unique manner of hoarding and his exclusive used of a closet he had direct access to is critical to the ultimate question before the grand jury.
‘Whether Dorothy knowingly possessed several firearms wrapped in tinfoil and plastic which were then placed inside large black garbage bags and large cardboard boxes messily piled on top of each other in a closet containing Glenn’s possessions.’
Hirsch also attempted to exonerate his wife in a suicide note, claiming that the weapons belonged to him.
He sent the note to his lawyers, prosecutors and those involved in the case in the lengthy note which was also left in his apartment by cops who discovered him.
He feared that he would be returned to prison over further weapons charges ahead of Friday’s hearing, writing that he didn’t want to sit in a cell for years or fight the charges from behind bars.
His ‘dying declaration’, which was partially submitted to the court, read: I want to take full responsibility for the eight guns recovered from a closet in Dorothy's apartment.
