Judge whose body was found in Hudson River committed suicide

From USA Today-

"It's an incredibly sad situation," Eric Phillips, spokesman for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, told USA TODAY via e-mail Wednesday. "The legal community and our entire city are very much reeling from the loss."

Rebecca Wilson, a spokeswoman for Abdus-Salaam's family, told USA TODAY Wednesday that the family had no comment at this time but if that changes, updates will be posted on the website created after the judge's death:

The Court of Appeals did not have a comment, spokesman Gary Spencer said.

The fully-clothed body of Abdus-Salaam, 65, was found April 12 in the water off of West 132nd Street, in Harlem, one day after she was reported missing. There were no signs of trauma or criminality, officials said. Her husband, the Rev. Canon Gregory Jacobs of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark, N.J., identified the body.
