Evelyn's tragic story

The producer's sister, Ellen Brown, admitted that she had not been able to contact her since last October, while describing her as a

"very accumulative person

It was


of this company who

found the mummified body

, explained Madeline O'Connell Hartling, who created a GoFundMe campaign in December to raise funds to find Sakash.

"This is just


," Brown told the New York Daily News about his sister's death.

"She had a full life. She had an extraordinary talent. She had a brilliant mind ... I don't want my sister to be remembered like that, as they found her."

"This is clearly the effect of a long time," he added. "Sometimes she kept people at bay. The headlines call her the 'Queens Hoard,' but she really wasn't like that."

In fact, her sister highlighted how


she was always with her family and friends.

"Every one of his friends would say he was the first person to step up if someone needed help," he recalled.

"I want all of that to be her final memory, and not that she was found in poor condition."

Talented, Evelyn Sakash won an Emmy and is described by her people as "very generous."
