Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam, who became the first Muslim and black woman to serve as a United States judge, was found dead in New York’s Hudson River on Wednesday.

New York Police Department said Tuesday that the death of Justice Sheila Abdus-Salaam, a New York Court of Appeals judge whose body was found on a bank of the Hudson River in Manhattan last week, is suspicious.

The NYPD said it would treat the death as suspicious because there was no immediate indication of suicide or criminality.

“We have a middle-aged woman deceased in the water with all her clothes on, with no signs of homicide or suicide,” NYPD Sgt. Brendan Ryan told ABC News late Tuesday.

“When a body is found floating in a river, it is deemed suspicious in nature. Absent any clear signs of criminality, the cause of death is determined by the medical examiner,” he added.
