As reported by the likes of CNN, Shabazz was the youngest of the legendary activist's six daughters. She is thought to have been found lying unconscious in her Brooklyn home by her daughter on Monday November 22.

Bernice King, the youngest daughter of fellow civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr., who was also assassinated in his endeavours to achieve racial equality, gave her condolences on social media.

While the NYPD say the cause of death appears to be natural causes and there is no indication of foul play, the timing of her passing is rather poignant and eerie, as the two men initially accused of killing her father were exonerated in a court hearing this past Thursday.
New York County Supreme Court, Ellen Biben, granted the motion to vacate the convictions of Muhammad A. Aziz and the late Khalil Islam, who are now deemed to have been wrongfully convicted over the assassination.
Meanwhile, Mujahid Abdul Halim (also known as Thomas Hagan) - the one man who confessed to participating in Malcolm X's shooting back in 1965 - now lives a quiet life in Brooklyn as well.
