Malcolm X autopsy

Malcolm X autopsyOn February 21, 1965, Malcolm X was preparing to address the Organization of Afro-American Unity in Manhattan’s Audubon Ballroom when someone in the 400-person audience yelled “Nigger! Get your hand outta my pocket!” As Malcolm X and his bodyguards attempted to quiet the disturbance, a man seated in the front row rushed forward and shot him once in the chest with a double-barreled sawed-off shotgun. Two other men charged the stage and fired semi-automatic handguns, hitting Malcolm X several times. He was pronounced dead at 3:30 pm, shortly after arriving at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. According to the autopsy report, Malcolm X’s body had 21 gunshot wounds to his chest, left shoulder, and arms and legs; ten of the wounds were buckshot to his left chest and shoulder from the initial shotgun blast.

    As everyone see that the bullets came from a downward angle. How can our own brothers kill him down on the floor if he was on A stage. The stage was five or more feet in the air. Now I believe the traitors was accessories to his murder by shooting blank shots. Rest in paridise to another activist Mr. Dick Gregory for unveiling the truth behind 2 of our most wanted to know theories. The assassination of MLK & Malcolm X.

    Those bullet wounds to the chest are well grouped, sign of a marksman, buckshot was to keep a clear target for the assassin?

    • Stewie says:

      Those are the wounds inflicted by a sawed off shotgun, which is why they’re closely spaced.
