First Judge According TO NYPOST
The death of a pioneering judge found in the Hudson River is being treated as “suspicious” by the NYPD — which has a special contingent of cops investigating how she wound up in the water, The Post has learned.
“We’re looking at it as a suspicious death at this point,” NYPD spokesman Stephen Davis said.
“We haven’t found any clear indications of criminality, but at this point we can’t say for sure. We’re hoping if anyone could shed any light into the hours before her disappearance, it would help us establish what happened.”
Investigators have spent days poring over surveillance video in a vain attempt to trace the final movements of Court of Appeals Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam last week, sources said Tuesday.
Extra cops have been assigned to find and review additional video from stores, residential buildings and mass transit, sources said.
“The problem is that where she lives, there’s a dozen ways of going anywhere,” one source said.
“No video shows how she got anywhere that day.”
What’s more funny is that when it first happened, they ruled it a SUICIDE even though her body was found (A JUDGE) was found in the Hudson River.
Then this happened…
Second Judge According TO NBC NEWS
A Cook County judge was shot dead and a woman wounded outside the judge’s Chicago home on Monday morning, police said.
Associate Judge Raymond Myles, 66, was shot multiple times shortly before 5 a.m. on his porch in the South Side of the city, authorities confirmed.
He was pronounced dead at 5:33 a.m., at a nearby hospital, said the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office in a statement.
The woman, who police said was a “close associate of the judge,” was shot in the leg but “is expected survive,” said Chicago Police Department 1st Deputy Superintendent Kevin Navarro.
“You have our word that we will not let the judge’s life go in vain,” Navarro said. “We will hold this killer accountable,” he said.
Police say the woman left her home to head to the gym when she encountered “an individual with a gun” outside the door. They exchanged words and the man with the gun began firing shots shortly after, Navarro said. Myles came out upon hearing the sounds of gunfire by the same individual.
Police say they do not believe the woman knew the person who shot them and no property appears to have been taken from the home.
A neighbor told the Chicago Tribune that he awoke to “gunfire and screams” coming from the judge’s home.
“I heard maybe six shots. The shots woke me up, and the screaming of the woman woke me up. She was screaming, ‘Don’t kill him, don’t kill him!'” said the unidentified neighbor, who also said the shooting may have been recorded on cameras installed at the home.
