Back in April of this year, 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.

Here’s an update..

In a report from the New York Daily News, New York City’s medical examiner’s office ruled Wednesday that Abdus-Salaam‘s drowning in April was a suicide. The NYPD closed the investigation on May 3 and turned their information over to the coroner’s office.
