Victoria “Vicki” Sims, a 75-year-old retired state worker and grandmother, who was well-known for her work in local Democratic politics and for her volunteerism with AARP, was found dead in Tallahassee, Florida over the weekend.
AARP Tallahassee released the following statement:
Vicki had been missing since June 11.
Sadly, her body was discovered on Saturday, June 13 on Monday Road in Tallahassee along with another victim, Oluwatoyin Salau.
Oluwatoyin Salau, a 19-year-old Black Lives Matter protestor, was reported missing on June 6.
Oluwatoyin, affectionately known as Toyin, was affiliated with Movement 850, “student leaders and community residents working together to demand justice and policy change” for police reform in Tallahassee.
The afternoon Toyin went missing, she took to Twitter and revealed she had been molested that morning around Park Avenue and Richview Road.
Vicki and Oluwatoyin reportedly met at a recent Black Lives Matter protest.
Police have arrested a suspect in the double murder investigation.
Aaron Glee Jr.
According to court documents, the suspect in this case was previously arrested on May 30. He was accused of aggravated battery causing bodily harm and was released on a $2,500 bond on June 1.
Documents also say that Glee said he often helps homeless people. The probable cause affidavit from May 30 says a victim had offered Glee sexual favors in exchange for two bottles of liquor, but then she changed her mind.
That’s when Glee attacked the victim.
This story is developing.
My heart, thoughts, and prayers to all who knew and loved Vicki and Oluwatoyin.
