Four days after beloved activist and African American Museum founder Sadie Roberts-Joseph
New York Times reports:
Baton Rouge detectives arrested Ron Jermaine Bell in the killing of Sadie Roberts-Joseph, 75, whose body was found stuffed in the trunk of her car on Friday afternoon, Police Chief Murphy Paul told a news conference.
Bell was one of Roberts-Joseph’s tenants and was behind on about $1,200 in rent, Paul said. The suspect was already in jail in East Baton Rouge Parish for failing to register as a sex offender when police linked him to the murder, said Sheriff Sid J. Gautreaux, III, at the same news conference.
Police have ruled out the possibility of Ms. Sadie’s murder being a hate crime.

I truly hope they have the right guy in custody and their not pinning this on the most likely suspect.
