Police look to uncover judge's movements before death

NY police are now treating the death of America's first female Muslim judge as "suspicious", six days after her body was found in the Hudson River.

It was initially thought Abdus-Salaam committed suicide, since no evidence of criminality was found on her body and she left her vehicle, pocketbook, cash, MetroCard and cellphone behind in her apartment, according to the New York Post. Police found her body at afternoon on 12 of April, a day later; the report of her missing is filed.

Two law enforcement officials say the death is being treated as a suicide.

Investigators are studying surveillance video footage from shops and residential buildings to try and piece together Ms Abdus-Salaam's last movements, the New York Post reported.

"Justice Sheila Abdus-Salaam was a trailblazing jurist whose life in public service was in pursuit of a more fair and more just New York for all", New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement.

A new clue has emerged in the investigation of the death of a top state judge found floating in the Hudson River, NY1 has learned.

On Tuesday, a NYPD spokesperson told BuzzFeed News her death was being investigated as suspicious.

Police confirmed that there were no marks of trauma on her body.

The judge had her MetroCard on her when her body was found, but the last time it was used was the Monday before her death, NBC New York reported.

Abdus-Salaam may have been depressed.

Abdus-Salaam was appointed to the Court of Appeals in 2013.

On Tuesday, the NYPD took to Twitter to ask anyone who has information on Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam's apparent suicide to come forward.

Jacobs also pushed back against reports that ruled Abdus-Salaam's death as "probable suicide". She began taking medication for a depressive episode a few weeks before her death, an anonymous "well-placed" court source told the New York Daily News, adding that police had found those drugs.
