Former NYPD Officer Opens Questions Into Malcolm X Assassination


The question of who killed Malcolm X is at play decades after his assassination.

Family members of the late civil rights activist are calling for the investigation into his murder to be reopened. Decades after the civil rights activist and icon was assassinated in New York City, two of his daughters spoke out this past weekend.

They're pushing for a further probe in light of new testimony that would seem to implicate both the New York police and the FBI in the death of Malcolm X. The letter from now deceased former New York police officer Raymond Wood was read aloud Saturday. In it, Wood accused the NYPD and FBI of playing a role in the high-profile killing.

The Manhattan District Attorney has already started a review of the convictions in the case.
