NYPD treating death of judge found in Hudson River as ‘suspicious’

The death of Court of Appeals Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam, who was found dead last week in the Hudson River, is now being treated by the NYPD as “suspicious” as police investigate how she got in the river, according to The New York Post.

“We’re looking at it as a suspicious death at this point,” NYPD spokesman Stephen Davis said. “We haven’t found any clear indications of criminality, but at this point we can’t say for sure. We’re hoping if anyone could shed any light into the hours before her disappearance, it would help us establish what happened.”

Sources said that the problem was in looking through surveillance and other video records, which had so far not turned up anything in the attempt to trace the famous judge’s final actions.

“The problem is that where she lives, there’s a dozen ways of going anywhere,” one source said. “No video shows how she got anywhere that day.”

In an attempt to get more information on Abdus-Salaam’s movements and decisions on her last day, police publicly asked on Tuesday for anyone with information to come forward to help with the investigation.

While the medical examiner’s office has not yet released a cause of death, sources say that there was water in her lungs, which suggests she may have been alive when she hit the water.
