A Black Lives Matter protester has been found dead in Florida along with a 75-year-old woman after tweeting that she had been sexually assaulted as police arrest a 49-year-old man.

Officers from the Tallahassee Police Department identified Oluwatoyin Salau, 19, late Monday morning as one of two women who were found dead in the 2100 block of Monday Road in Tallahassee on Saturday night.

Salau's body was discovered near 75-year-old Victoria Sims, police said. Both names were released with permission of their families in accordance with Marsy’s Law. Their deaths are being investigated as homicides.

Police identified the suspect in the case as 49-year-old Aaron Glee Jr. He has been taken into custody.

Court documents show that Glee was previously arrested on May 30. In that incident, he was accused of aggravated battery causing bodily harm.

He was released on a $2,500 bond on June 1. Glee reportedly told authorities that he often helps homeless people.

Police identified Sims as the second victim after issuing a missing person alert for her Saturday night. AARP Florida also announced her death on Facebook and Twitter on Sunday evening.

'AARP Florida deeply regrets the death of Vicki Sims, a long-time AARP volunteer. We understand that the Tallahassee Police Department is pursuing an investigation into her death,' the group wrote.

According to the organization, Sims is survived by two daughters, Brenda and June, and several grandchildren.

She was a member of the Tallahassee Heights United Methodist Church.

Sims retired several years ago from the Florida Department of Elder Affairs.

'Vicki worked tirelessly to improve the lives of others – as a dedicated advocate for older Americans; a committed volunteer for AARP, Second Harvest Food Bank of the Big Bend and other community causes; a devoted mother and grandmother; and a passionate, fully engaged citizen, helping our nation to achieve its highest ideals.

'Her life is an example of the great principle laid out by AARP's founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus -- "to serve, not to be served".'

Several people took to Twitter early Monday morning and started sharing the '#RIP Toyin' hashtag. The hashtag came after Tallahassee police reported finding two bodies on Monday Road around 9.15pm Saturday night.

'TPD investigators arrived in 2100 block of Monday Road in the course of a follow up investigation in a missing person case. During the course of the investigation, two deceased people were located in the area,' police said in a press release.

Police said Salau was last seen on June 6 in the area of Orange Avenue and Wahnish Way in Tallahassee.

On that same day, Salau shared a series of disturbing tweets about being molested by a black man who offered her a ride.

'Anyways I was molested in Tallahassee, Florida by a black man this morning at 5:30 on Richview and Park Ave. The man offered to give me a ride to find someplace to sleep and recollect my belongings from a church I refuged to a couple days back to escape unjust living conditions,' Salau tweeted.

She said the man, who she described to be in his mid-40s, 'came disguised as a man of God and ended up picking me up from nearby Saxon Street'.

Police have not said whether or not Glee is the same man Salau accused of molesting her on June 6 before she disappeared.

'I entered his truck only because I carry anything to defend myself not even a phone (which is currently at the church) and I have poor vision. I trusted the holy spirit to keep me safe,' she wrote.

'When we arrived at his house he offered me a shower and I thanked him and shower and he gave me a change of clothes. He exposed himself to me by peeing with the bathroom open obviously knowing I was out of it. I told him about a sexual assault situation that happened...'

Salau then tweeted about telling him about another man who 'tried to force me to give him oral sex and then continued to harass me thru text and knocking at my door for days'.

'Going back to the situation that happened to me this morning, I did not fall asleep. He then asked me if I wanted a massage at this moment his roommate who was in the house was asleep. I was laying on my stomach trying to calm myself down from severe ptsd. He started touching-

'My back and rubbing my body using my body until he climaxed and then went to sleep. Before I realized what happened to me I looked over and his clothes were completely off. Once I saw he was asleep I escaped from the house and started walking from Richview Road to anywhere else

'All of my belongings my phone my clothes shoes are all assumably at the church where I've been trying to track since I sought spiritual guidance/ refuge. I will not be silent.

'Literally wearing this man's clothes right now DNA all over me because I couldn't locate his house the moment I called the police because I couldn't see.'

Under her thread, several people asked Salau if she was safe and even offered help, but she never responded.

Double homicide suspect had criminal past

Updated: Tue 7:57 AM, Jun 16, 2020



TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Leon County court documents show 49-year-old Aaron Glee Jr., who Tallahassee Police have arrested in connection to the deaths of Oluwatoyin "Toyin" Salau and Victoria Sims, had a criminal past.

Documents show Glee has been charged with battery after allegedly getting into a fight over "racial differences," on May 28.

The next day, according to court documents, he was arrested on aggravated battery charges for a separate incident.

In one probable cause document, a May 29 incident is detailed off Blair Stone and Kay Avenue in Tallahassee; Glee was with a woman, who said she knew Glee through a mutual friend. The document says the woman allegedly rejected a sexual advance and was thrown to the ground and kicked.

Authorities say Glee told officers that he knew the woman because he "helps the homeless," and "has bought her food and drinks," in the past.

Police records say he bonded out June 1.

When WCTV checked state prison records, Glee collected at least nine convictions since 1992, all out of Palm Beach County; his last stint in prison ended in 2017, before he moved into Care Tallahassee, a Christian home for men.
