Roberta Edwards (55) was an American missionary who dedicated her life to serve the children of God in the impoverished nation of Haiti. She was the director of SonLight Children's Home in the capital city, where this kind hearted missionary used to provide care for 20 orphaned children and feed around 160 children at least twice a day, five days in a week and educational supports to them under the programs of Estes Church of Christ in Henderson, Tennessee since 2002. On October 10th, 2015, Roberta was killed by two gunmen near her foster care home while she was returning from a gas station with three of her young charges. The gunmen emerged after her car was intentionally blocked on a rutted, dirt road. She was shot multiple times and the killers snatched a 4-year-old boy Jonathan "JoJo" Paul, out of the three traveling with her, and sped off in a vehicle with tinted windows. The motives behind the murder and kidnap are still unknown.
