    Aaron Glee Jr. Named as Suspect in Tallahassee Murders of BLM Protester, AARP Volunte

    Aaron Glee Jr., a Florida man with a long criminal history for domestic and other cases, is accused of murdering a Black Lives Matter protester and an AARP volunteer from Tallahassee whose bodies were found together.

    The victims were identified as Oluwatoyin Salau and Victoria “Vicki” Sims by police. Both women were highly regarded in activist circles. Tallahassee.com reported: “The 19-year-old and 75-year-old met after recent protests over justice for black lives.” Salau, known as “Toyin,” spoke at BLM protests. Sims was also active in Democratic politics. upload_2020-6-16_13-20-40.jpeg
    “Toyin was very passionate,” her friend Danaya Hemphill said, according to CBS News. “She was very vocal she was very loving, very spiritual, very caring. Toyin she was like a light in a dark room. That was Toyin.”

    Salau and Sims were found dead in a double homicide Saturday night, June 13, the Tallahassee Police Department said Monday in a press release. According to Tallahassee Police, Salau and Sims were found dead in the 2100 block of Monday Road.

    The suspect, 49-year-old Aaron Glee Jr., has been taken into custody, police said in the press release. Authorities have not released any other information about the double homicide investigation.

    1. Glee, Who Is From West Palm Beach, Has Two Recent Battery Cases Involving Another Man & Woman & a String of Other Past Criminal Cases, Court Records Show



    Orange County, Florida, jail records show Glee is being held on a warrant out of Leon County, where Tallahassee is located, charging him with felony murder and kidnapping. He is from West Palm Beach, according to the jail records. He was arrested by the Orlando Police Department on June 14.

    According to the police press release:

    At approximately 9:15 p.m. Saturday night, June 13th, 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. As the investigation continued, investigators developed a suspect. The suspect is now in custody and no more information is available at this time.

    Leon County court records show that Glee also had a closed 2019 case for marijuana possession and two recent cases — a battery case from June 9, 2020, and a case of aggravated battery causing bodily harm or disability from May 30 that is listed as open.

    Who is Oluwatoyin Salau?
    [​IMG]

    Oluwatoyin Salau was a 19-year-old activist who was found dead Saturday night.

    She was affiliated with Movement 850, which describes itself as "student leaders and community residents working together to demand justice and policy change" for police reform in Tallahassee. She spoke at recent protests and spent her final days carrying signs that pleaded for justice in the wake of Black lives lost.
    “Those lives may be lost, but we cannot be scared," Salau said last month, during a protest in front of the Tallahassee Police Department. "You are angry and it’s OK to be angry.”

    In a series of tweets that were sent on the afternoon of June 6, Salau talked about a man who molested her earlier that day. She said the man offered her a ride back to a church where she been staying.

    There is so much more ridiculousness to Oluwatoyin Salau's story. Do NOT contribute the GoFundMe that her raping :moon: brother and her family that put her out instead of him put up.

    @Crackers Phinn Wait,nso you are saying that the man who killed her is not the one she tweeted about, but her own brother?!!!! And her family knew?!!!!

    That makes sense in a way because I was wondering why she only tweeted about the rape and didn't report it to police. Are police looking into it?

    This poor girl! incomprehensible.

    After her friends found out that the brother had set up a gofundme so they tweeted that the reason Oluwatoyin Salau was homeless in the first place was because her brother was molesting her and when confronted their mother chose to put her out instead of him. That's how she ended up seeking shelter and ran into the man who ended up raping and killing her.

    ^^That is a terrible story.

    I wonder what made her go out and protest anyway. I have been treated really well by all of the black men in my life, and I still won't go stomp around in the street for them.

    While I'm not surprised that her family put HER out instead of her trifling brother, I am so disappointed and tired. After reading the lyrics to J.Cole's new song calling out a Black woman and hearing about Toyin, I want to say so much about Black men, but I'll just stop here. I hope Toyin is at peace. I wonder how her mother feels.

    Rant: We are not safe at home, protesting in the streets, at work, etc. I'm glad tomorrow is Friday, because I need a mental health day this weekend.

    She was still a baby. So this man killed a child and an elderly woman? He needs to be set on fire.
    And this madness about her mother putting her out of the house is sickening.

    “All my life I had to fight. I had to fight my daddy. I had to fight my brothers. I had to fight my cousins and my uncles. A girl child ain't safe in a family of men...”

    This has been echoing in my head since I read about this girls story.


    This death hit home for me. It really upset me. It’s been on my mind for days. She favours a friend of mine so much, who died under suspicious circumstances years ago. Her spirit is also like my friend. Warrior princesses. May they both RIP.

    When my friend was 17 she was couch surfing. I asked her what was going on and she told me her moms bf was moving back in with her mom after being away for several years. She told me the moms bf used to rape her. I told her to tell her mother. I was so naive. Her mother kicked her out. She admitted that she believed her daughter (she probably knew) but told her she had to go. I never envisioned a mother would discard their own girl child like a dirty rag, for a dirty rag. I don’t understand how some mothers can do this. It’s so disgusting. They do not deserve their daughters and their daughters deserved SO MUCH better.


    It’s crazy that the brother has no shame, but so typical...

    The more I learn about Oluwatoyin Salau, the sadder I get. I knew people were saying not to donate to the gofundme her family set up but I didn't know why. Now I learn her brother molested her, and her mother abandoned her and left her unprotected. :cry: This is devastatingly horrible.

    Pretty sure the BLM protests aren't just "for them" but all black people, including black women, black boys and black girls, who may have been victims or police violence. Not sure why some people think it's only about black men when a black woman was just shot and killed in her home three months ago. Breonna Taylor. Sandra Bland. Rekia Boyd. Atatiana Jefferson. There are others too. Say their names.

    Sadly this is all too common as we're seeing with Toyin's story. Women will shame the daughter and put her out. It's disgusting.

    Too many mothers will bring strange men into their homes who will rape their children (daughters and sons) and blame the children for them getting raped. In Toyin's case, ignorant, selfish mothers will ignore when one of their children is raping the others. This happens more than many of you'd want to know. This needs to be the next thing we address. This mess needs to end.

    Theoretically true........ but the focus tends to be on black men. It’s because black women are the vocal ones of social media and have been pushing for more black women coverage that the larger media are picking up these stories.

    Also...... there is the tension of the truth. Majority of the violence BW/BG face is from BM/BB and within their BC’s.

    Maybe but can black women really complain about lack of coverage when there are black women who do the same thing -- only focus on black male victims? Ever since Sandra died 5 years ago, there's been more of an effort to highlight the black women who are victims of police brutality and racial crimes.

    Breonna's name has been in a lot of national news stories about police misconduct. ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and CNN have all aired multiple stories where her name is included. USA Today, NYT and other too. Breonna, Ahmaud and George's names have been linked together as examples of black lives recently taken by racial violence. She hasn't been mentioned as much as George and Ahmaud, probably because the other two had videos that showed their deaths and maybe because she's a woman. But her name has been out there. Beyonce's even calling for criminal charges to be brought against the officers involved in her killing.

    There are black women out there with signs of black women victims and shouting their names. We have to make sure that we're remembering these women too.
    I don't disagree with this as most crimes that happen in the US are intraracial, IIRC. I definitely think the violence that black women and black girls suffer at the hands of black males needs to be addressed. Maybe black women should start holding the "good" black men in our lives accountable for calling it out and not tolerating it?

    There is definitely a shift happening with BW (30 and under) especially. Internet/Social media is the main catalyst.

    There is definitely more calling out of BM. Lots of interesting underlying stuff going on macro and micro levels.

    I hate posting things without proof of what I'm saying but there's a lot of cussing in the friends claims and I stay getting warnings round here.
