American serial killer Aaron Glee has been charged in Florida with the murders of 19-year old Nigerian protester Oluwatoyin Salau and 75-year old American woman Vicki Sims.

The Tallahassee police in Florida was trying to find Victoria Sims, a retired state worker who had gone missing a few days earlier, when they traced her cellphone to Glee’s residence on June 13.

“A search of the property and nearby woods turned up the bodies of Sims, 75, and Oluwatoyin Salau, 19, a local student and Black Lives Matter protester who’d been missing about a week,” reported USA Today.

The report said, “Glee, 49, managed to slip out of town before officers arrived, fleeing on a Greyhound bus with blood stains still on his pants. Police caught up with him at a bus station in Orlando, arresting him on murder, kidnapping and sexual assault charges.”

Before she was murdered, Oluwatoyin Salau who went missing on June 6, was last seen demanding justice for George Floyd, the unarmed black man who died on May 25 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Family members told the Tallahassee Democrat, part of the USA TODAY Network, that she was found dead on Saturday June 13.

“Salau was one of two homicide victims discovered Saturday night in southeast Tallahassee, a couple miles from where she was last seen at a library,” reported USA Today.

“There is no justice that can be served that will replace my sister’s life,” her brother, Oluwaseyi Salau was quoted as saying.

The report quoted her friend Danaya Hemphill as saying that the last time she saw her was the day before she went missing. They were at a Friday afternoon protest.

“We were all together one minute and the next minute our friend was gone,” Hemphill said.

“I had a feeling that we were not going to find Toyin alive,” said Hemphill, 22. 

USA Today said “at each demonstration, Salau had been reciting the names of Black people killed, such as Tony McDade of Tallahassee and George Floyd of Minneapolis.”

“I don’t want their names gone in vain,” Salau said during one protest in front of the Tallahassee Police Department last month.
