The founder of an African-American history museum in Louisiana was found dead in the trunk of a car on Friday night. 
 
According to Baton Rouge Police Department, the body of Sadie Roberts-Joseph, 75, was found in the trunk of a car parked in the 2300 block of North 20th St, just three miles from where she lived at roughly 3:45 p.m. on Friday, July 12. 
 
The Authorities didn't reveal how she was discovered, and the cause of the 75-year-old’s death is still unknown. 
 
The East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner’s Office reportedly will conduct an autopsy to determine the exact cause of Roberts-Joseph’s death.
 
In a Facebook post, police mourned the loss of Roberts-Joseph who they called a “treasure to our community.”
Ms. Sadie was a tireless advocate of peace in the community. We had opportunities to work with her on so many levels … Ms. Sadie is a treasure to our community, she will be missed by BRPD and her loss will be felt in the community she served.”

Roberts-Joseph was a renowned advocate in the Baton Rouge area. She founded the Odell S. Williams Now and Then African American Museum in 2001, where she had been hosting the city's Juneteenth celebration for years. She also founded Community Against Drugs and Violence, a non-profit organization focused in creating a safer environment for children in North Baton Rouge.
