Widow of Queens ‘Duck Sauce Killer’ found not guilty of weapons possession

NEW YORK — After a Queens Criminal Court trial that spanned over two months, the widow of “Duck Sauce Killer” Glenn Hirsch was found not guilty Wednesday of 18 charges of gun possession.

Dorothy Hirsch, 64, walked out of the Queens Supreme Criminal Court a free woman over two years after being charged with possession of eight guns in a closet of her home, some of them loaded.

The weapons were found during a search of her Briarwood apartment in June 2022 after Glenn Hirsch was arrested for murdering beloved Chinese food delivery man Zhiwen Yan, 45.

Glenn Hirsch was accused of killing Yan in a months-long feud with Great Wall Restaurant in Forest Hills over whether enough duck sauce was included with his delivery orders.

Dorothy Hirsch maintained everything in that closet belonged to her husband, saying it was filled with only his belongings.

It was never claimed that any of the weapons found in Dorothy Hirsch’s home were used to kill Yan.

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 wife was innocent of any charges.
