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

Authorities say Shabazz, 56, was found inside of her Midwood home on East 28th Street by her daughter.

The death does not appear suspicious.

Bernice King, daughter of Martin Luther King Jr., took to Twitter saying “I’m deeply saddened by the death of Malikah Shabazz.”

Shabazz’s death comes just days after two men were exonerated in the 1965 assassination of civil rights icon Malcolm X, after a nearly two-year-long re-investigation.

Muhammad Aziz, now 83 and previously known as Norman Butler, spent 22 years in prison before he was paroled in 1985.

A co-defendant who also maintained his innocence, Khalil Islam, died in 2009.
