Bey IV’s Murder List

Yusuf Bey IV not only ordered the assassination of journalist Chauncey Bailey, but he kept a list of other people he wanted killed, according to the Chauncey Bailey Project and the San Francisco Chronicle. The new details emerged from a recording of a statement given to prosecutors by Devaughndre Broussard. Broussard, who says he executed Bailey at Bey IV’s request, is going to testify against Bey IV, his former boss, in exchange for a lighter sentence. Bey IV, the CEO of the now defunct Your Black Muslim Bakery, is said to have ordered Bailey’s assassination because of a story the journalist was working on about the bakery’s financial problems and because of prior stories that Bailey had written about Bey IV’s father, Yusuf Bey. Bey IV once said of Bailey; “That’s the motherfucker that killed my dad,” according to Broussard. Bey IV was said to have blamed Bailey’s stories for the stress they placed on his father.
