Malikah Shabazz, the daughter of the late civil rights leader Malcolm X, was found dead in Brooklyn, less than a week after two men convicted of assassinating her father were acquitted… TMZ has been confirmed.
Law enforcement sources told us that Shabazz’s death did not appear to be suspicious. She was found lying face down on the floor of the living room by her daughter. Considering that just last week, 83-year-old Muhammad Aziz and Khalil Islam, who died in 2009, were acquitted after decades of long-term investigations. This is the timing It’s creepy.
Shabaz is one of the 6 children of Malcolm X and his wife Betty Shabaz.
Malcolm X was 39 years old when he was assassinated in New York in 1965.
We recently invited Phil Bertelsen, the director and producer of the Netflix documentary “Who Killed Malcolm X?”. Talking about the moment Aziz found out he was acquitted on TMZ Live…tell us that this is a very exciting time.
Malika was only 56 years old, and her official cause of death is unclear.
