Sheila Abdus-Salaam, the first Muslim woman and first African-American woman to serve on the state’s highest court, has died, according to New York City police officials.

She was 65.

Abdus-Salaam’s body was found on Wednesday in the Hudson River, showing no signs of obvious injury.

Born in Washington, D.C., Abdus-Salaam was nominated to the state Court of Appeals as an associate judge in 2013 by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and confirmed in May by the state Senate.

“I was proud to appoint her to the state’s highest court and am deeply saddened by her passing,” Cuomo said in a statement.

“On behalf of all New Yorkers, I extend my deepest sympathies to her family, loved ones and colleagues during this trying and difficult time.”

Previously, she had been elected to the state Supreme Court in 1993 and was appointed an associate justice of the Appellate Division, First Department in March 2009 by Gov. David Paterson.
