The daughter of the late-1960’s radical Malcom X has now been found dead in her New York City home.

As The New York Post reports:

A daughter of Malcolm X was found dead Monday inside her Brooklyn home, sources said.

Malikah Shabazz, 56, was discovered by her daughter inside the Midwood residence at about 4:40 p.m., the sources said.

Investigators do not suspect foul play, sources said. An autopsy will determine Shabazz’s cause of death.

NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said Tuesday that Shabazz had been “ill for a period of time” but didn’t elaborate.

Shabazz and her twin sister are the youngest of six daughters Malcom X fathered.
