Bey's son-in-law says he was Bailey's source
The Oakland Tribune and the SF Chronicle report that the son-in-law of Your Black Muslim Bakery founder Yusuf Bey was secretly assisting slain Oakland Post Editor Chauncey Bailey (pictured) prepare an expose on the bakery's finances. Ali Saleem Bey, 43, who married one of the late Bey's daughters, said he was surprised Bailey was killed over the story, which had yet to be published. "I thought it was dangerous for me, not him," he said. Oakland Post attorney Walter Riley would not confirm that Saleem Bey was Bailey's source for the unpublished series.
