(FOX NEWS) - An ex-stripper who went on to law school and later was elected a judge was found dead inside her Nevada home Sunday, The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
Her body was discovered during a welfare check, the report said, and authorities do not suspect foul play.
Henderson Municipal Judge Diana Hampton was known by colleagues as a hard worker and appeared to be the perfect picture of health. Her death shocked colleagues, one of whom told the paper he planned to have lunch with the judge this week.
Hampton, who served as a municipal judge for more than a decade, worked with youth in the community to discourage them from crime.
