A daughter of Malcolm X was found dead Monday inside her Brooklyn home, sources stated.

Malikah Shabazz, 56, was found by her daughter contained in the Midwood residence at about 4:40 p.m., the sources stated.

Investigators don’t suspect foul play, sources stated. An post-mortem will decide Shabazz’s reason for loss of life.

“I’m deeply saddened by the death of Malikah Shabazz,” Bernice King, the daughter of Martin Luther King Jr., said in a post on Twitter.

“My heart goes out to her family, the descendants of Dr. Betty Shabazz and Malcolm X. Dr. Shabazz was pregnant with Malikah and her twin sister, Malaak, when Brother Malcolm was assassinated.”

Malikah Shabazz and her twin sister Malaak are the youngest of six daughters of Malcolm X.

She and her daughter, Bettih Shabazz, had been arrested in January 2017 on animal cruelty prices in Maryland.

Several injured canines had been found subjected to “inhumane conditions” inside a stolen U-Haul truck the pair had been driving.

Malcolm X made headlines final week after two of the late civil activist’s convicted killers — Muhammad Aziz and the late Khalil Islam — had been exonerated.

Aziz and Islam every spent some twenty years in jail for the Feb. 21, 1965 taking pictures of Malcolm X on the Audubon Ballroom in Washington Heights. Both had been paroled in the Eighties.

The duo and a 3rd man, Mujahid Abdul Halim, had been found responsible of the homicide in March 1966 and sentenced to life in jail a month later.

No bodily proof linked Aziz or Islam the to homicide or the crime scene, and each had alibis backed by testimony.

Halim, who admitted to being one of many killers, vouched for Aziz and Islam, testifying in the late ’70s that the boys had “nothing to do with it.”

He recognized 4 co-conspirators, members of the Nation of Islam from New Jersey — however nobody else was ever arrested. Halim was paroled in 2010.
