A prominent New York political figure, 65-year-old Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam, was found dead near the Hudson River, according to reports.

She was appointed to serve on New York's highest court and was the first black, Muslim woman to do so. On Tuesday, her husband had reported her missing.

Authorities are saying at this time there are no signs of trauma and no suicide notes have been found. However, the circumstances surrounding her death are still extremely strange.
