The FBI had been linked to his death in past theories that have circulated. Up until this latest claim, there were three primary circumstances believed to have led to Malcolm X’s death:
— The FBI was behind the infamous assassination of the controversial Black Muslim leader and political activist.
— The white power structure in America conspired to gun him down.
— It was an inside job carried out by his former brothers in the Nation of Islam.
Now, with the claims of new evidence, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office says “the review of this matter is active and ongoing.”
The NYPD released the following statement Saturday:
“Several months ago, the Manhattan District Attorney initiated a review of the investigation and prosecution that resulted in two convictions for the murder of Malcolm X. The NYPD has provided all available records relevant to that case to the District Attorney. The Department remains committed to assist with that review in any way.”
