Suspected killer of Oluwatoyin Salau charged with murder and kidnapping

Barely 24 hours after the 49-year-old man identified as Aaron Glee Jr was arrested in connection to the killing of the Black Lives Matter activist, Oluwatoyin “Toyin” Salau, the suspect has been charged to court by the police.

Aaron Glee Jr was charged with murder and kidnapping by the Tallahassee Police Department a day after the department announced that Oluwatoyin “Toyin” Salau, 19 and Victoria Sims, 75 were found dead.

According to the police, information led police to Glee’s home in southeast Tallahassee on Saturday during an investigation of their sudden disappearance and both women were found dead.

According to the department, the 49-year-old Glee had fled to Orlando on a bus before the police arrived at his home.

Court records show that the suspect was arrested early Sunday by the Orlando Police Department.

Based on evidence recovered at the scene and other information gathered by Tallahassee police in Orlando, Glee was charged with murder and kidnapping, police said.

The authorities also revealed that he was recently arrested twice in recent weeks in unrelated battery cases.

Court records show Glee was arrested in Leon County for aggravated battery on May 30 and was released on June 1 on a $2,500 bond. He was also accused of battery in connection with a May 28 incident and charges were filed on June 9.

Recall that the deceased, Toyin went missing after she tweeted about being sexually assaulted by a blackman who offered her ride when she was stranded after the Black Lives Matter protest.

The Nigerian race activist took part in a Black Lives Matter demonstration in the Tallahassee area on June 6. She was last seen in a CCTV footage on June 10 at about 7:03 pm at Monroe Street, Tallahassee, Florida.

Police said Salau had contacted the Tallahassee Police Department to report a “possible sexual battery” that occurred on June 5 but the authorities added that at this time there is no indication it is related to her death.

“The information and description Salau provided to police and posted on social media prior to her disappearance does not match the person ultimately found to be responsible for her murder,” police said in a news release on Tuesday.
