NYPD and FBI behind Malcolm X’s murder, alleges family in a newly released letter

-

- Advertisment -

Several family members of Malcolm X family have made public ‘a letter written by a deceased police officer’ stating that the New York Police Department and FBI were behind the 1965 killing of the famed Black activist and civil rights advocate.

The letter released has been attributed to a former undercover NYPD officer named Raymond Wood.

According to Reuters, Raymond Wood’s letter stated that he had been pressured by his NYPD supervisors to lure two members of Malcolm X’s security detail into committing crimes that resulted in their arrest just days before the fatal shooting. Those arrests kept the two men from managing door security at the ballroom and was part of conspiracy between the NYPD and FBI to have Malcolm killed, according to the letter.

“Under the direction of my handlers, I was told to encourage leaders and members of the civil rights groups to commit felonious acts,” Wood’s letter stated, as quoted by Reuters.

Malcolm X’s daughters have requested that the murder investigation be reopened in light of new evidence.
Malcolm X was a prominent spokesman of the Nation of Islam, an African-American Muslim group that espoused Black separatism, he later converted to mainstream Islam in the 1960s, after completing Hajj. Malcolm X became known as el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz in the latter part of his life.

Malcolm was assassinated in New York while preparing to deliver a speech. Three members of the Nation of Islam were convicted in the shooting. Malcolm is “widely celebrated within African-American and Muslim American communities for his pursuit of racial justice.”
