UPDATE: New York judge with ‘unshakable moral compass’ found dead in Hudson River
The first Muslim female judge in US history was found dead on the banks of the Hudson River in New York under mysterious circumstances. The case comes days after another judge in Chicago was shot dead outside his own home.
The body of former New York State Supreme Court Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam, 65, was found floating in the Hudson River off Manhattan Island on Wednesday, the New York Post reported.
The New York Police Department Harbor Unit responded after witnesses spotted Abdus-Salaam’s fully-clothed body floating in the Hudson River near 132nd Street and Hudson Parkway.
Abdus-Salaam had been reported missing from her home in Harlem earlier in the day. Her husband later identified her body to police.
