Suspect Charged In Double Homicide of Oluwatoyin Salau and Victoria Sims
The female victims’ bodies were found near the suspect’s Florida home.
Police are investigating the double slaying of two women whose bodies were recently found together in Florida.
The Tallahassee Police Department said in a statement Monday they have taken Aaron Lee Glee Jr., 49, into custody on suspicion of killing Oluwatoyin Salau, 19, and 75-year-old Victoria Sims.
Salau and Sims may have recently met at a Black Lives Matter protest and went missing less than a week apart, the Tallahassee Democrat reported.
On June 6, the day Salau disappeared, she had Tweeted someone “disguised as a man of God” had molested her that morning after offering her a ride to find somewhere to sleep.
According to Salau’s tweets, her belongings, including phone and shoes, were at a local church she had gone to for “spiritual guidance” and “refuge,” and she took up the man’s offer of a change of clothes and shower at his house.
Salau tweeted that after he attacked her and fell asleep, she escaped but “couldn’t locate his house” when she called police because she suffered from poor vision and had been unable to see.
However, Salau wrote, she knew the man lived in a gray duplex-type home and drove a white truck.
Police have not indicated whether Glee, the suspect in Salau’s murder, is the same man the teen was referring to in Tweets.
Sims, the elderly second victim, was last seen alive on June 11 near a shopping center located about a mile from Glee’s home.
The grandmother was a “lifelong advocate for older people” and volunteer with her local AARP Florida chapter, said the organization’s spokesperson, Dave Bruns.
Glee lived near where the two women’s bodies were found, WCTV reported.
He is currently being held at the Orange County Correctional Facility.
