Malcolm X’s daughter, Malikah, found dead
Malikah Shabazz, the 56-year-old daughter of the late civil rights leader Malcolm X, has been found dead.
Malikah’s body was found dead by her daughter at home in Brooklyn. Shabazz was one of 6 of Malcolm X’s kids with his wife Betty Shabazz.
This comes just one week after the 2 men convicted for her father’s assassination were exonerated.
83-year-old Muhammad Aziz and Khalil Islam – who died in 2009 – were exonerated last week of the murder of Malcolm X after a long investigation that spanned several decades.
Malikah’s official cause of death is not yet known.
