TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The bodies of two missing women – Oluwatoyin "Toyin" Salau, 19, and Victoria "Vicki" Sims, 75 – were found Saturday at the suspect's residence.
Salau, an activist who took part in recent protests, had been missing since June 6.
Sims, a retired state worker and community volunteer, had been missing since June 11.
On Monday, police identified Aaron Glee Jr., 49, as the suspect in the homicides. Glee had been arrested twice over the past few weeks on battery charges before police found the bodies.
This timeline traces moments in the case leading up to both individuals' deaths and the investigation that continues.
May 29: Glee arrested on battery charge
Glee was arrested May 29 on a charge of aggravated battery after an officer spotted him kicking a woman in the stomach, according to police reports.
The victim told police that the two had been drinking and that Glee propositioned her for sex.
“She told him no so Glee became angry, shoved (her) to the ground and began kicking her in the abdomen,” the police report says.
June 6: 'Toyin' tweets about sexual assault
In a series of tweets that were sent on the afternoon of June 6, Salau talked about a Black man who molested her that day. She said the man offered her a ride to a church where she'd been staying
Salau tweeted that she escaped from the man but was wearing his clothes because all of her belongings were at a church. She said she called police but couldn't locate the man's house again because of vision problems.
Salau's last tweet was a retweet of her own description of the suspect.
"Mid 40's lives in a gray painted duplex apartment style house drives a white clean Silverado Chevrolet truck"
On the same day, online Leon County Court records showed a misdemeanor battery charge was filed against Glee Jr.
June 8: Toyin sought emergency shelter
According to the Kearney Center, Salau arrived at the homeless shelter at 9:30 p.m. that night. The facility is closed because of coronavirus precautions but shelters people elsewhere. Salau was given a phone number for case managers who could help her seek emergency shelter.
Salau called an Uber soon after and left the area. The Kearney Center said it has no record of Salau reaching out to case managers. Others reached out to the shelter about Salau's whereabouts, but officials were not at liberty to give out information about her because of confidentiality laws.
June 9: Police post missing person report for Oluwatoyin Salau
Tallahassee police posted on their social media channel a missing persons flyer for Salau, saying she was last seen June 6, about a quarter of a mile away from where Salau tweeted that she was picked up for a ride by a man who sexually assaulted her.
Police spoke with the Kearney Center about Salau's visit to the shelter the following day.
June 13: Missing person report for Vicki Sims
Police posted a missing person flyer on their social media channels two days after they said Sims was last seen.
One of Sims' neighbors said she came by to check on her Saturday and found the front door to her apartment ajar.
Sims' home is about a mile from the area where Salau said she was sexually assaulted June 6.
