A retired judge drowned in her hot tub on Christmas Day after accidentally falling and hitting her head in her new Georgia vacation home, according to investigators. 

Tracy Sheehan, 60, was found face down in the water by a concerned neighbor after they heard her dog barking at her cabin in Blue Ridge. 

Sheehan - who was also a former TV anchor and had survived breast cancer -  was a judge in Hillsborough County, Florida, for 11 years until 2017. 

She is understood to have been dead for several hours when she was found in the home she purchased in October. An autopsy report and toxicology results are still pending.
