  • Malikah Shabazz, 56, was found dead in her Brooklyn apartment by her daughter on Monday.

  • Last Thursday, two men were cleared of the murder of Shabazz’s father, Malcolm X.

  • Malcolm X’s daughters have called for his murder investigation to be reopened in light of new evidence.

One of Malcolm X’s six daughters, Malikah Shabazz, 56, was found dead around 4:40 p.m. EST Monday in her Brooklyn apartment by her daughter, a spokesperson for the New York Police Department confirmed.

His death comes two days after Muhammad Aziz and the late Khalil Islam were cleared of his father’s murder. Their convictions were reconsidered after Malcolm X’s daughters demanded that the investigation into his murder be reopened in light of new evidence, citing a deathbed letter from a former police officer who claimed New Police York and the FBI had plotted to assassinate their father, the BBC reported.

The investigation is ongoing and this story will be updated as more information is released.
