Black Lives Matter activist Oluwatoyin Salau found dead

The Tallahassee Police Department has identified Oluwatoyin “Toyin” Salau as a murder victim after a week of searching for her as a missing person. 

Police also say the suspect in this case, 49-year-old Aaron Glee Jr., has been arrested. The other victim in the double murder was 75-year-old Victoria Sims, according to TPD.

Salau’s name was trending via social media for a week. Salau was a serious activist and had appeared on several videos of the protests here in the state’s capital. 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 Community Action Committee organized a search party for her on Wednesday, June 10.

On Sunday, it was reported that two bodies were found near Monday Road. 

It was widely speculated online that Salua was one of the victims. 

“Both names have been released with permission of their families in accordance with Marsy’s Law,” TPD said in its press release.
