James Matte's polygraph test on Khalil Islam convicted in the assassination of Malcolm X
On the 4th of March 1983, James Matte administered a polygraph examination using the Matte Quadri-Track Zone Comparison Technique on Khalil Islam, nee: Thomas Johnson, convicted and incarcerated at Dannemora State Prison in Upstate New York for the fatal shooting of civil rights leader Malcolm X in 1965. The polygraph test was conducted for the TV Show "Lie Detector" hosted by F. Lee Bailey, attorney at law, and Ed Gelb, Past President of the APA. The results indicated Khalil Islam was truthful when he denied shooting Malcolm X. The polygraph charts were sent to Ed Gelb for his review and analysis and he agreed with Matte's findings and the TV program was widely shown throughout the United States and Canada. It was recently reported in the news media that on 18 November 2021, Khalil Islam's conviction was overturned and he was completely exonerated. Khalil Islam died in August 2009.
