The events following the murder are confused. One of the assassins, a man named Talmadge Hayer,  was captured by the crowd, then rescued from them and arrested by police. It was initially reported  that another gunman was arrested on the scene, yet all reports of him subsequently vanished, and  the initial report was never explained. The Deputy Police Commissioner reported that police  protection had been offered Malcolm, but that he had refused the offer. Yet Malcolm had stated  earlier that he had been trying to get police protection, and the police department had refused his  requests. Such contradictory reports, coupled with Malcolm's last-minute assertions that it was not the Muslims  who were trying to kill him, have led to widespread speculation among his followers and admirers  that he was the victim of some mysterious official conspiracy, perhaps involving the FBI or the CIA.
