Thomas Hagan, the only man who admitted his role in the 1965 assassination of iconic black leader Malcolm X, was paroled in 2010 and is alive today. Furthermose Hagan insisted that Aziz and Islam were not involved. And the two maintained their innocence throughout the years.
Historian Abdur-Rahman Muhammad says Aziz and Islam had alibis. “The thing is, two of them weren’t even in the Audubon ballroom that day,” he says.
Islam died in 2009. Aziz was paroled in 1985, and at 81 years old is still hoping to clear his name. He is working with the Innocence Project to clear his name.
