Aaron Glee confessed to the murder of Black Lives Matter activist Oluwatoyin “Toyin” Salau and Victoria Sims, a community volunteer, according to newly-released court records from the Leon County Clerk’s Office.
Records from the Leon County Sheriff’s office show that Glee has been charged with two counts of kidnapping, one count of second-degree murder, one count of premeditated murder, one count of felony battery and one count of sexual assault.
Salau, 19, had gone missing for days before she was found dead in the 2100 block a double homicide June 15, along with 75-year-old Victoria Sims, according to a press conference given by the Tallahassee Police Department.
Sims volunteered at Second Harvest and she was an AARP volunteer for more than a decade, local TV news station WCTV reported. A spokesperson for AARP described Sims, who had retired from the Florida Department of Elder Affairs, as a “lifelong advocate for older people.” Sims was also a member of the Tallahassee Heights United Methodist Church and the news station has said that she was survived by her two daughters, Brenda and June, and multiple grandchildren. A celebration of her life has been scheduled for 2 p.m. June 26 at Bradley’s Pond.
Salau, 19, was an avid supporter of Black Lives Matter and often spoke about racial issues and police brutatlity, according to an earlier report from WTXL-27. According to one Twitter user, and Salau’s own tweets, she had trouble seeing, especially without her glasses.
Glee had a long criminal history, often involving battery and domestic violence incidents, which Heavy reported earlier in this more in-depth article on his criminal history.
The court documents where his confession is written provide a disturbing picture of Salau’s last days as a victim of multiple sexual assaults and eventually, murder, WTXL-27 reported. The station said that court documents revealed, “When TPD officers interviewed him, Glee confessed to kidnapping and murdering Salau and Sims on different dates.”
Sims Had Given Glee Rides, Brought Him Meals, Police Say
According to information from a probable cause affidavit, police said, “Sims often prepared meals for ‘Aaron’ and delivered them to his residence. It was reported that ‘Aaron,’ who did not own his own vehicle, often obtained transportation from Sims.”
Officers made a gruesome discovery when they tracked Sims’ cell phone to an address associated with Glee along Monday Road:
Officers and investigators traveled to 2110 Monday Road in an attempt to locate Sims. Upon arrival, Sims’ Toyota was observed … mired in mud and was immobile. A sheet had been placed over the rear of the Toyota and the license plate was bent upwards, concealing the registration’s characters and numerals.
The body of a deceased female, later positively identified as Sims, was found inside of the northwest bedroom. Sims was positioned on the carpeted floor in a partially prone position. Her arms and feet had been bound behind her in a particular manner. It would be determined that Sims was the victim of murder.
Police also found Salaus’ body, which they said “was found to have been purposely covered with leaves and other vegetation. It would be determined that [redacted] was the victim of murder.” Two hours before police arrived at the location, Glee had purchased a bus ticket, but he was detained at the Greyhound bus terminal by Orlando police.
Salau Had Reported Being Sexually Assaulted Shortly Before Encountering Glee
Anyways I was molested in Tallahassee, Florida by a black man this morning at 5:30 on Richview and Park Ave. The man offered to give me a ride to find someplace to sleep and recollect my belongings from a church I refuged to a couple days back to escape unjust living conditions.

On Twitter, Salau had described being “molested … by a black man” at around 5:30 a.m. on June 6 and according to the probable cause affidavit, told police that the incident had occurred “shortly after she had emerged from the male subject’s shower.” The police determined that the incident was a battery, but were unable to locate the residence or man Salau said did it. Later on in the document, police noted that the battery suspect was not Sims and was not believed to have anything to do with her murder.
He came disguised as a man of God and ended up picking me up from nearby Saxon Street. I entered his truck only because I carry anything to defend myself not even a phone (which is currently at the church) and I have poor vision. I trusted the holy spirit to keep me safe. When we arrived at his house he offered me a shower and I thanked him and shower and he gave me a change of clothes. He exposed himself to me by peeing with the bathroom open obviously knowing I was out of it. I told him about a sexual assault situation that happened…
Going back to the situation that happened to me this morning, I did not fall asleep. He then asked me if I wanted a massage at this moment his roommate who was in the house was asleep. I was laying on my stomach trying to calm myself down from severe ptsd. He started touching me back and rubbing my body using my body until he climaxed and then went to sleep. Before I realized what happened to me I looked over and his clothes were completely off.
Once I saw he was asleep I escaped from the house and started walking from Richview Road to anywhere else. All of my belongings my phone my clothes shoes are all assumably at the church where I’ve been trying to track since I sought spiritual guidance/ refuge. I will not be silent. Literally wearing this man’s clothes right now DNA all over me because I couldn’t locate his house the moment I called the police because I couldn’t see.
Glee Quickly Confessed, Police Say
According to the affidavit from police, Glee quickly confessed once he was in police custody and did so multiple times after that. The first time he confessed was after he had complained about having trouble breathing and been taken to the hospital. Then, police said that he, “made voluntary admissions to the officers guarding him that he had murdered two women in Tallahassee.”
Police say he also confessed in a telephone call to his mother and both confessions were recorded by officer-worn body cameras.
Finally, Glee confessed in detail to two Tallahassee detectives who interviewed him in Orlando on June 14. During that instance, Glee waived his Fifth Amendment rights not to incriminate himself and “would admit in detail that on different dates, he had kidnapped and murdered both [redacted] and Sims.”
Glee’s Confession Contains Disturbing Details
In the police affidavit, Glee said that he met Salau on a bus stop bench and talked to her for an hour. During the conversation, she said that she was homeless and had recently been sexually assaulted, at which point, Glee offered to take her to his home and then called Sims for a ride. Those details were corroborated by video footage from a Tal-Tran.
Glee said that Sims left after dropping the two off and Salau took a shower. Then he said he attempted to sexually assault her:
Glee advised that soon after [redacted] emerged from the shower, he attempted to engage her in sexual activity. He stated that she physically resisted him and that she bit him upon his right forearm during the struggle. A significant bite injury was present on Glee’s forearm.
Glee said that he succeeded in forcing himself on her and agreed when detectives asked if he would characterize his actions as rape. Glee said that he bound Salau in the same way that Sims had been bound. As time went on, Glee told police that he knew he would go to prison for what he had done, which is what motivated him to kill her.
Glee said that he would release [redacted] at various times and allow her to eat, bathe, and move about the residence freely. He would also admit to sexually assaulting her numerous times during those three to five days. Glee stated that he was aware that he would be arrested and likely sentenced to prison if he allowed [redacted] to leave the residence. Glee indicated that he determined that his only course of action was to end her life.
Glee stated that he again bound [redacted] in the same manner with her hands and feet tied behind her. He then placed a separate binding around her neck and tied it to the bindings at her hand and feet. Glee then left her in the northwest bedroom of the residence. Glee indicated that he was aware that the pressure exerted by the binding around [redacted]’s neck would cause her to die of asphyxia. Glee explained how over the course of several hours he would re-enter the bedroom multiple times to see if [redacted] was stil alive. Ultimately, he entered into the room and determined that [redacted] was deceased. Glee stated that [redacted]’s body remained inside of the residence for as many as two days. He ultimately moved [redacted]’s body to the wooded area behind his residence and covered her with leaves.
Glee was denied bail, according to the Tallahassee Democrat and faces life in prison.
Glee said that he kept Salau for three-to-five days, for most of which, he described himself as being very drunk.
