Oluwatoyin "Toyin" Salau

A social media firestorm started after news circulated that a 19-year-old woman named Oluwatoyin “Toyin” Salau was found dead on Monday morning.

The Florida teenager had been very vocal about the recent events leading up to the Black Lives Matter protests over racism and police brutality across the country. The news comes after a recent online petition was created demanding justice for the slain activist.

According to the Tallahassee Democrat, Salau was one of two victims discovered over the weekend off the road in southeast Tallahassee, a couple of miles from where she was last seen at a library. Victoria “Vicki” Sims, 75, who also had been reported missing, is the second victim was also well-known for her volunteerism and work in local Democratic politics.

Salau went missing three days prior until she was found dead Saturday night. “There is no justice that can be served that will replace my sister’s life,” her brother, Oluwaseyi Salau said to the Tallahassee Democrat. Her last series of tweets from her Twitter page detailed her recent account of an unknown man molesting her along with his description. This was the last anyone had heard from her before she was found dead.

Police identified the suspect of the double homicide as Aaron Glee Jr, 49, who had been arrested twice recently for violent offenses. According to WCTV, documents also say that Glee said he often helps homeless people. The probable cause affidavit says a victim had offered Glee sexual favors in exchange for two bottles of liquor but she changed her mind.

Investigators have not released a motive or any other details about what led to the double homicide.
