Malikah Shabazz, Malcolm X

Malikah Shabazz, a daughter of Malcolm X, was found dead in her Brooklyn home Monday, according to police.

Authorities say the 56-year-old Shabazz was found just after 4 p.m. inside of her Midwood home on East 28th Street by her daughter.

The death does not appear suspicious, and Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said she had been ill for some time.

“At this point in time, working with other authorities, the medical examiner, and speaking to the family, she had been ill for a period of time,” he told PIX. “And at this point, nothing appears suspicious.”
