From the New York Daily News:

The man who murdered Malcolm X with a shotgun blast in 1965 was released Tuesday from prison.

Thomas Hagan, who turned 69 this month, walked out of the Lincoln Correctional Facility around 11 a.m., said state corrections spokeswoman Linda Foglia.

Hagan was spending two nights a week in the W. 110th St. facility as part of a work release program that he started in 1988 – 23 years after the assassination of Malcolm X inside the Audubon Ballroom.

His bids for parole and full release were rejected 16 times before Hagan was cleared for freedom on March 3. He is now under supervision of the state Division of Parole.

Foglia said Hagan was turned loose one day prior to his tentative release date because all the inmate’s paperwork was completed early.
