The daughter of famous black rights activist Malcolm X, Malikah Shabazz, was found dead in her Brooklyn apartment by her daughter on Monday.
Last Thursday, two men were exonerated for the murder of Shabazz’s father.
Shabazz, was found deceased around 4:40 p.m. on Monday in her Brooklyn apartment by her daughter, a New York Police Department spokesperson confirmed.
Her death comes days after Muhammad Aziz and the late Khalil Islam were exonerated for the murder of her father.
Their convictions were reviewed after Malcolm X’s daughters requested that the investigation into his murder be reopened in light of new evidence, citing a deathbed letter from a former policeman who alleged New York police and the FBI conspired to murder their father.
The investigation is ongoing.
