An arrest has been made in the strangulation death of 75-year old Sadie Roberts-Joseph whose body was found in the trunk of her car parked about three miles from her home, Crimeonline.com reports.

Louisiana police arrested Ronn Jermaine Bell, who was a tenant on the victim's property, according to NPR.

Police say Bell owed Roberts-Joseph back-rent, and they determined that was the motive in her killing.

Sadie Roberts-Joseph was a well-respected civil rights activist and founder of the African American History Museum in Baton Rouge.

According to the East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner's Office, the cause and manner of her death is attributed to homicide by traumatic asphyxia.

Baton Rouge Police Chief Murphy Paul said there is "no information to lead us to believe this is a hate crime" or that "this incident was motivated by Ms. Sadie's activism or community efforts."

Mayor Sharon Weston described Roberts-Joseph as one of the city's "standout matriarchs," and vowed to "make her death a priority."

    I have never wanted to be a landlord. A family house I have to rent, but I am not looking forward to it.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    What a piece of shit! No good deed goes unpunished. I don’t understand how a pedophile convicted of raping an 8 YEAR OLD was living in one of her properties in the first place. Everyone doesn’t deserve a second chance some folks deserve the electric chair.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Bout to head to drop my little lady off at six flags ..... sending much love to Sadie's family .... she did not deserve this ...... that devil busy but fawk him I will have a wonderful day ......

  • Ghetto Real Name

    This pissed me off so bad these past few days. Starting when she was stuffed in the trunk of her car. How dare anyone treat an elder in this gross ass manner? RIP to this beautiful icon and may her murderer rot in prison or hell. Dont matter to ME one BIT. Ugh this bothered my soul so bad bc they found her as the storm was being covered last weekend. It was no reason for this.

  • Wreckognize Game

    There are some crazy criminals that live here in BR. There was one who broke into the governor’s mansion and went to sleep on the couch. They snatched him up and took him straight to the jail because he also had synthetic weed in his pocket.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Damn you be dropping her off? Im sending Dub14 next summer then so she can have some company lmao. We can drop both they asses off in the parking lot and drive off fast as we can sis and we can go and eat good all day lmaoo.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That's one reason it's good if you can hire a management company manage your rental properties. That way you can maintain your privacy and not have to deal with difficult or potentially violent tenants.
    R.I.P. to to this lady.

  • Wreckognize Game

    It’s so sad that he hurt this lady that was willing to give him a chance. Just looking at him says he might be trouble but she tried. RIP Ms. Sadie.??????

    I don’t understand how a pedophile convicted of raping an 8 YEAR OLD was living in one of her properties in the first place
    ^^^^^^^
    Bc the family of the victim agreed to a PLEA deal. Pist me off when I read THAT SHIT AS WELL.

    "Moore said a jury had been selected and seated to hear the trial on the aggravated rape charge, but “at that time it was thought to be best that this person plead guilty to sexual battery, which he did.” Moore said the family of the victim was involved in the plea agreement decision. Moore said Bell was sentenced to seven years in prison and served his entire sentence. The original charge would have resulted in a mandatory life sentence if he was found guilty."

  • Desi

    Bring out the firing squad!!!!

  • MsSapphire9800

    Those "eyes" say murderer...he killed an elderly woman who had contributed so much...just to live rent free forever. Why do people feel they can just live in people property without paying...and than get upset when the owner demand their rent. I just don't understand some people's logic.

  • https://plus.google.com/112554936495871947070 Don’t touch my laptop!

    That woman must of had a very kind heart to help someone out who looks like that. He looks fucking crazy, cause I would of been like " hell no" . That lady didn't deserve that. Doing all this Noble work in the community to be killed by a nigga. My grandma is her age and kind of looks like her and just the thought of someone doing that to her ugh.... hopefully they tear his ass up in jail.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Smdh. They probably didn’t want their child to have to testify and be broken into a million pieces by the defense attorney. I would think the sexual battery charge would have popped up on his background check. Those types of crimes don’t get sealed.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    I get it. I understand. I am the parent of 2 daughters. But it put him back on the streets in 7 years and now look.

  • xxxgracious

    RIP Mrs. Sadie!

  • CardiB’sAbs

    You’re absolutely right.

  • Chapter29Chick

    Thanx this peice of advice was helpful. My grandfather rents his property through HUD. He be having them crazy baby mama tenants who don’t clean the house and have abusive baby daddies who don’t cut the yard. But HUD regulates whenever he needs to relay a complaint or collect checks.

  • tintin

    Sorry my brothers or sisters but I own a income property and would never rent to black people. I have no time for these issues and it's sad that myself as a black person would not give to my own. I remember how my mama was so irresponsible back in the day, til we got evicted many times. Then on top of it, friends always moved in with us cause they got evicted and couldn't pay their rent. So my own family left a bad taste in my mouth.

    I have a Filipino family who has been my tenants for 3 years, Never had issues with rent and the house is spotless and they don't smoke. I hope they never leave. They are very responsible and clean.

    Definitely wouldn't rent to White or Indian, they too nasty or always clutter and have dirty baseboards.

  • Blak

    Of course a black man that she put her trust into did it

  • Chapter29Chick

    Wow, ninja was just crazy azz hell?????. This lady paid her dues 2 the community. New Orleans better make sure she is always remembered and a motivation to others to get involved in our communities to make a change. Unfortunately sometimes there is a price to pay for being good to our community.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'm getting ready to pick up a rental property shortly and my requirement will be 650+ credit score and their year job history, showing them employed at least 1 year at the same company. Not compromising on that. I'm not a fan of discriminating by race, but I think it makes sense to require at least some kind of job stability and decent credit.
    If they've had trouble paying their bills or keeping a job I'm not renting to them, period. I'm not listening to anybody's sob story, and I'm making zero exceptions.

  • iWasteTime

    I wish I could drop Jr off with her.
    He's dying to go and I hate the rides and Mister is bleh to it all ...lol
    I hope she has an amazing time!

  • Renee26

    He looks crazy...can't help everyone

    RIP Queen

  • Coy little wink

    You really have to vet prospective tenants properly. I own a house that is sitting empty right now as I'm not going to rent to family after a bad experience. My ex owned property I used to do his evictions. Why do people trash others property and try to live free. It's ridiculous...

  • Chapter29Chick

    Do they even conduct mental evals before releasing these looney tunes out of jail? Prolly not! Just making room for the next crazy person who needs a bed ?...

  • Renee26

    Yes, you're right, it is sad that you discriminate against your own versus letting background and credit checks shape your choice of who to approve.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    They’re supposed to. But they’re supposed to do a lot of things but don’t.

  • Angela Marsh

    i HAVE SAID THE same thing, ex: Nipsey Hussle. You try to stay in the community to make change, for people that don't want change. Go live in a better environment with like minded people, and pay a visit and help as you can but you CAN NOT STAY THERE, because you have done better and others have not, and they carry that ignorant mentality of you think you're better and etc.
    So they don't mind robbing, killing or etc. SMH.

  • Soda

    Your Pill-a-peen family probably will never leave. I was a neighbor to a family that moved in when their first kid was a newborn. He's now in high school and has a younger brother. Four people in a one bedroom apartment with no plans to move, even when a 2 bedroom house in back was available to them because they didn't want to pay more. They were all loud-talkers too.?

    Ya’ll gotta look up what a “patsy” is. I swear I don’t believe any of this shit. It’s always a black person taking the fall for some shit the government did.

  • KarmaBackAround

    And its sad cause its so many more out here like this person.. thats why our people cant get ahead because we hold each other back.. its other ways to find responsinle tenats then to say i dont rent to blacks ..

  • Yardgirl

    I have been hoping for a post on this since it happened. RIP sweet lady

  • Renee26

    Chile I swear! I got a squatter right now. Didn't even get to enjoy my empty nest good before a mf try and finesse their way in.
    My niece asked to work from my crib while she's waiting on a place (relocated). I said yes to WORKING there not moving in. This helfa bought a ton of groceries the other day... We bout to have a nice talk.

  • PetiteButterScotch

    The gov killed her and they’re using a black man to take the fall and ppl are just eating this shit tf up

  • Gloria

    So you discriminate against your own people. Whew Chile. Why don’t you just do background checks and set up a minimum monthly income with proof shown before you even approve the tenants?

    You do realize that there are MORE poor white people than black people, right?

  • TriniHarlem

    Because of mindset like yours I ONLY rent to our own. Proper management and preparation puts you in a power position. I digress because I don't have the time today.

  • tintin

    I've seen people do all the background checks for job and credit. I've even been to the tenant board and seen the most ridiculous cases. Best believe people with good credit , job and even money can be slack tenants too. Honestly you just have to hope and pray for no issues.

  • Marlika

    Who kills their landlord because they can’t pay the rent?? Nigga go back to sleeping on big mamas ? couch, floor or basement?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Look at that picture closely.
    Does that fool look as if he could piece together a logical thought?

  • tintin

    and you're free to to do that. Kudos to you.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    I’m considering the same in 2020. But I get cold feet everytime I go over my cousins’ and nem house and see how damn filthy it is! Their landlord is across the country and they have fawked this house up!

  • https://plus.google.com/112554936495871947070 Don’t touch my laptop!

    Its really not that hard to believe a black guy killed her. Google the gun memorial and you'll see countless black woman killed by our men. Tragic but its a reality.

  • tintin

    this right here is my biggest fear.FILTH

  • Chapter29Chick

    Yeah the problems in our community r so difficult to solve because it’s crumbled and still crumbling. Better to live elsewhere. When I moved to an opulent area in FL my family told me I was doing too much. I was like No I have 2 babies who need to sleep in peace at night without gunshots or burgalars. When I had my first baby at 25 my husband and I lived in a hood apartment where a man got shot and killed right on the other side of the wall where my babies crib was. They found 16 bullet casings all on the ground by his porch sliding doors. He was allegedly a drug dealer. Our car was on the news because we were parked near the caution tape. Also there were random gunshots almost every night. Duval county is no joke! I stay on alert especially when visiting family and friends.

  • Renee26

    They could've convicted without putting the child on the stand or even in the courtroom. That testimony could've been recorded.

    The state loves to push plea agreements

  • tintin

    Unfortunately as I said I"ve seen what my mother has done, and I have a few friends that have been through some stuff. I've also personally seen people I know damage homes, not pay rent etc. Unfortunately that is why I do this. But it happens across all races. I've unfortunately seen many experiences with my own.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    This is illegal. Like hell. Please do erase this perhaps. Or not. *shrug* But if Fred Trump was sued for it and it was highly recomm. by the DOJ to familarize himself with the Fair Housing Act of 1968, it can happen to anyone.

  • Alextra Ballard

    He was also a registered sex offender...welp,he doesn’t ever have tew worry about paying rent again where he’s going. He has a permanent home. Ms.Sadie Joseph may yew r.i.p....may her family find peace in these difficult times.

  • Ghetto Real Name
  • CardiB’sAbs

    Not just filth. Holes in the wall, cabinets tore off the wall, bathroom looks like Iraq... But it’s a bunch of them living there. I feel like I wouldn’t want to rent to folks with kids. My target renter would be a law student, medical student, or person pursuing their phd.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    You have to cross examine the testimony

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    No problem. A few buddies of mine own rental properties and they've been helping me get started. I've gotten really smart advice from them, so I'm always happy to pass on whatever I've learned.

  • Renee26

    They probably had evidence and medical records too. IJS if it was bad enough that he could've faced LIFE there was a way to convict him without putting the child on the stand.

    I'm grown and didn't have to take the stand for my attacker to be convicted.

  • Junkanoo

    Life has no rhyme or reason it seems this women was a beacon of light and lived her life with purpose to have it snuffed out by this loser over back rent. He couldn't even man up and deal with the consequences of not being able to afford rent and took it out on this sweet soul.

  • Renee26

    Ok... My black ass has never missed rent, even when I was between jobs. I have great credit and my documents speak for themselves. The yt man approves me everytime.. Shrug

    Honey there are crazy folks anywhere. Go ahead & move to what you believe are the 'good' neighborhoods & instead of being strangled, let one of your neighbors chop you up or rape & kidnap your children. There are crazy people everywhere. If something is meant to happen to you, it will happen no matter if you live in Beverly Hills. You have to be selective no matter what you do in life & judge folks based on their recent past

  • CardiB’sAbs

    We can’t make that assumption. It’s different for every case and the laws vary in each state.

  • Wreckognize Game

    This sweet lady probably took him in because Big Mama couldn’t trust that fool.?

  • garrisonville

    who gives af. you really made this about you. FOH

  • KarmaBackAround

    Okayyy! See some black folk who own property choose to treat blacks unfairly because they see other nationalities do it to us. To be honest tho, i dont even like to rent from black owners cause of this same type of unprofessionalism.. i dont want some scorned ass land lady who mamie ran a crack house n let other toxic folk live with her so u take it out on all black people..good people.

  • Wreckognize Game

    If you do become a landlord please do a background check if it!’s legal to do in your state. I remember a coworker that bought another house for her new marriage and wanted to rent her 1st marital home. She was new to being a landlord and let a chick move in with a deposit with a promise to pay rent the following week. That lady didn’t open the door when she went over there and ducked her for almost 2 months. She went to take legal action so the chick moved after tearing down the light fixtures and ceiling fans and shitted on the floor in every room.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Oh background checks are a must! I don’t understand why that wouldn’t be the first step.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Discrim. Laws there too. Along the same line as ours.

  • Dowoop

    That may have been what he was trying to accomplish.

  • currvalicious

    This is awful. Assuming a background check wasn't done on this cave demon. If so, maybe this wouldn't have happened.

  • Wreckognize Game

    She didn’t get any info or direction from anyone so she went in very green. After she started the legal stuff she found out the lady had been evicted before and bad checks. I felt so bad for her.

  • currvalicious

    Or rent for that matter.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Smdh

  • currvalicious

    Also blackgirltragic.....it's insanity, we're committing genocide within our own race.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Why would the Gov kill her? What is her story? I read she started an African American museum, but I don't know anything else.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    If you want to make that claim, fine. But do you have any evidence/ links you can provide us to back that up?
    People come up with conspiracy theories all the time on the internet. So if you have something solid, beyond just speculation, feel free to show it to us.

    Damn Shame!!!

    That part! I just commented above.. to many activists are turning up dead recently! coincidence . I think not

  • CookieMobster

    Nah let her leave it. She said she said what she said and she's sticking to it. That's exactly what she said.

  • Brooklyn23

    Well now him no have to worry about rent. He will be living rent free. But he couldn't commit some other crime like check fraud or some shit where he could spared her ,her life.

  • Angela Marsh

    I can tell you why we do it, because a lot of us come from that ignorance, we are raised around it, so we identify with it, and we become desensitized. We feel guilty when we become educated and disconnected from where we come from, a huge reality check comes on, and you can no longer operate on that level, and those that you leave behind will try to manipulate you into guilt, so you stay connected to avoid the criticism of leaving others behind, but the reality is that, everyone has the same choices as you do. There is no reason for then nonsense,, there are far too many resources to be enlightened and make a better future. PEOPLE DO WHAT THEY WANT TO DO, AND WHAT THEY DON'T WANT TO DO, THEY SIMPLY DON'T. No excuses....

  • PetiteButterScotch

    Yeah its not hard to believe living in a generation where black men step on or over us everyday and have no concern for our safety. But looking at his picture, he looks like somebody they found on the street with no family or background and they can do whatever they want and paint whatever narrative and people will believe it as long as a news reporter is reading a script off a teleprompter. It’s scary. They can do and paint whatever picture they want in a news studio. No different from a film production.

  • Brooklyn23

    Like WTF is peoples thought process???

    Well.... Do people exist like that anymore? Nope just a bunch of inhumane monsters. No empathy,no conscience, no resistance to evil. 1st time world was destroyed the handful of animals and people were brought on a boat while the flood came. I ain't the greatest but I am great so... I wanna be put on a 1st class plane with my fam when it gets destroyed again

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Hey IDC if you rent to XYZ if you dont want. I dont think its okay but its up to you. However, its for sure extra illegal and maybe you shouldnt say it out loud. If you post it here most likely saying it out loud to others where you are. Trying to help YOU out. My home church tried this crap and tried to mandate that the extra room they rent in exchange for handyman services, the person must attend Sunday services. If they are suing churches over renting practices please dont think YOU are above it. Good luck, good day, and goodbye.

  • Ghetto Real Name

    Stand in your your mama truth.

She stole my clothes and purse and who knows whatever else. I had a brand new pant suit hanging up that i had never even worn. I think she was on the stroll too...neva again.

  • Nophace

    This sh!t is disgusting!!! Just another reason why I'll continue to say that when it comes to some of our ppl, Black Lives only matter when it's convenient, I.e. a black person being killed by a cop or a white person. I guarantee you that once we actually prove that BL actually matter to us as a whole, then others will have no choice but to follow suit!
    Rest In Peace Queen Sadie

  • Brooklyn23

    Background check? Darlin there's a lot of criminals that lurk and don't have a record because they haven't been caught yet. Example he may not have had a background record at the time even if she decided to do that. But he does now

  • T Willis

    BLM is about law enforcement not valuing our lives in comparison to other races. All lives should matter to police officers, not just yts. And crime happens amongst all races, our crimes are just singled out the most.

  • T Willis

    I understand where you’re coming from, but sometimes when the racial climate is this intense, and one of elder black activists is murdered in the south, that’s just one too many coincidences that fall in line with other hate crime patterns. And this happened in Louisiana? My gut tells me there just may be foul play. We need the Chicago PD to investigate lol they seem like they can draw the most unlikely conclusions ?????

  • Renee26

    Chile I cannot

  • tintin

    i hear ya. Thx.

  • T Willis

    We definitely hold each other back, but, the other poster isn’t wrong lol. Black folks have zero respect for other blacks. They are constantly looking for ways to get around legalities and payments - especially when they know that the other person is black. I, too, know a lot of black ppl like the ones she described. A lot! True, the woman shouldn’t be discriminating against anyone (especially your own ppl), but sometimes extra measures need taken because black folks will take advantage of you and will lie/have YOU arrested for trying to help their asses lol. I totally understand where she’s coming from and why... it’s not ok, and it’s definitely not legal lol, but as Chris Rock says... I understand lol

  • https://plus.google.com/112554936495871947070 Don’t touch my laptop!

    For AA's being singled out and treated the worse, why is our community constantly destroying ourselves? We know we got it bad and yet we continue to throw dirt on ourselves along with every other race. Why would anyone want to respect the AA community?
    And no it ain't everyone in the black community fucking things up, but it's a large number.

  • T Willis

    Wow!!!

  • Marlika

    Big Mama said “ We ain’ts gonna have no evil in dis here house!”?

    He looks like he ate paste in grade school.?

  • DroneRivers

    Black Lives already always matter to us. The reason we don't have to go chanting it up and down the streets when a Black person commits the crime is because their ass gets locked up for it promptly. Crazy-eyed dude up top is the perfect example. BLM is about the white perpetrators who kill us with impunity and get off.
    But the fact is crime is almost always intra-racial. White people kill each other just about as much as Black people kill each other and Asian people kill each other and so on.
    I guarantee you lowering Black crime rates isn't going to get us the respect we deserve from others and should already be getting simply because we're human beings.

  • T Willis

    Those are a lot of loaded questions lol. The short answer is: racism. We were placed in underfunded ghettos, inflicted by institutional racism, redlining, the over policing of our communities, mass incarceration, the removal of social programs etc.....and I mean, that’s not even the full extent of the problem lol. It’s not just blacks killing each other for the sake of killing each other, there are so many other contributing factors for why our ppl are in the most f*cked up condition in comparison to other races... it was created by design, but made to look as though we are nothing more than illiterate, ignorant, savages who kill each other just cause... it’s propaganda, don’t feed into it

    I TOLD YALL IT WAS A BLACK CRACK HEAD!! But nawl y’all wanted to say TRUMP SENT THE CIA ????

    Typical. Live your life fighting for the rights of black people and die by the hand of a black man. I bet my sister that it was a black man that killed her and I was right. Free babysitting for a week ?????

    had to block that fool

    I said the same thing when I first saw this story. She devoted her life to standing up for black rights and history and that t would be a black person to harm her and now I see I was right and it's very sad.

    She was a good person.
    This infuriates me

    I don't believe in background checks or credit checks for tenants. I believe in intuition. These crazy people in the news like this killer always look nuts. Look at this man, clearly he's an undesirable.

    I'm sorry, black people need to trust their intuition and be discerning and unafraid to discriminate when necessary. No way ever I would have rented to the psycho in the photo up top.

  • Chulita

    Free rent in jail.

  • Yup, I said it

    Hire a property management company to do it. You will pay a small fee but it will be worth it. Some of these renters are professional squatters.

  • Yup, I said it

    People like this will tear your house up when you kick them out. Hateful people will flush wet concrete down the toilets, strip the house of copper wiring, sue the landlord for injuries. Its not worth the headache.

    A shame! This poor woman didn’t deserve this, over what, nothing!

    The lack of value we have for human life is astounding!

    Not just this loser, but all those who prey on others, rogue cops, racists (the security guard trying to take down the black deputy sheriff, for an example)!

    All the men killing their spouses and kids, all the real true crime stories, the babies in Flint Michigan, teachers beating down special needs kids!

    All the media that feeds insecurities and deprivation, false gods/things we worship!

  • EMILY POST

    So like if it was a hate crime would it have been worse? This bottom loser murdered somebody because he couldn’t pay his rent...
    Mental illness and Loser males... they said he was previously jailed for raping an 8. If they would of hung this scum then set him on fire ? for attacking a child this woman would have been alive.

    When I was younger and more idealist, I used to argue with my parents for having your same policy about renting. But with age and maturity, I've come to understand that being a landlord is having to be a realist. But society does put hardships on black people that make for instability but I know it's no excuse to fall behind in mortgage to keep it real. Difficult situation.

    Draw and quarter this MF

  • the guest

    Over back rent. Unbelievable. What was his logic? That if she was dead he wouldn’t have to pay? What an evil idiot that he prefers to murder a good soul and life in prison over a homeless shelter.
