TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- The Tallahassee Police Department has identified Oluwatoyin "Toyin" Salau as a murder victim after a week of searching for her as a missing person.
The Tampa Bay Times reports the bodies of Oluwatoyin Salau, 19, and one of her new acquaintances, Victoria Sims, 75, were found Saturday night on a property about 10 minutes east of Florida's Capitol, Tallahassee police said Monday. The 19-year-old and 75-year-old reportedly met after recent protests over justice for Black lives, the Tallahassee Democrat reports. On Sunday, it was reported that two bodies were found near Monday Road.
Tallahassee Police said the suspect in this case, 49-year-old Aaron Glee Jr., has been arrested. According to arrest records in Orange County, Florida, Glee was arrested in Orlando on June 14 on an out-of-county warrant from Leon County on charges of homicide-felony murder.
Salau was a vocal activist and had appeared on several videos of protests in Tallahassee. She was last seen on June 6 in the area of Orange Avenue and Wahnish Way in Tallahassee. Before she disappeared, Salau had sent tweets about being attacked.
The Tallahassee Democrat reports that Glee was arrested May 29 on a charge of aggravated battery after an officer stopped at a traffic light saw him kicking a woman in the stomach, according to police reports. The victim in that case was neither Sims nor Salau.
