*The man arrested in connection with the death of Black Lives Matter activist Oluwatoyin Salau has confessed to sexually assaulting her multiple times before killing her. 

The body of Salau, 19, was found over a week after she vanished on June 6 in Tallahassee, Florida. 

She went missing hours after writing on Twitter that she had been sexually assaulted by an older man. Police confirmed she was found dead off Monday Road in southeast Tallahassee. Her cause of death has not been revealed, PEOPLE reports. 

Along with her body, investigators also recovered the body of Victoria Sims, 75, who had been reported missing earlier in the day.

The suspect, Aaron Glee Jr., 49, claims he held Salau captive for several days, and raped her “numerous times” before killing her, PEOPLE reports. 

Here’s more from the outlet:

In newly released court documents, authorities in Florida allege Aaron Glee, Jr., confessed several times to kidnapping and murdering Black Lives Matter activist Oluwatoyin Salau and longtime volunteer Victoria Sims — two women who’d recently befriended each other during demonstrations over police brutality and systemic racism.

Police say Glee claimed to have first met Salau on June 6, hours after she said she was sexually assaulted by a different man. The two met at a bus stop in Tallahassee, and he claims she confided in him about the sexual assault, which she described in a series of Twitter posts.

The report goes on to note that Salau allegedly told Glee she had no place to stay, so he offered to take her back to his home so she could shower and sleep.

According to police, Glee knew Sims from volunteer work, and he called her to pick them up and drive them to his place, where she dropped them off.

It was then that Glee tried to have sex with Salau, but she refused. 

“He stated that she physically resisted him, and that she bit him upon his right forearm during the struggle,” the report says.

Glee allegedly overpowered her, tied her up and raped her for several days. 

Because of his criminal history, Glee allegedly decided to kill Salau rather than let her go free and report him to police. 

According to the report, he bound her with rope to obstruct her breathing, and left her in a bedroom to die slowly. 

“Glee explained how over the course of several hours he would re-enter the bedroom multiple times to see if [Salau] was still alive,” the report says. “Ultimately, he entered into the bedroom and determined [she] was deceased.”

After Salau died, Glee reportedly kidnapped and killed Sims. 

Police allege he “had made voluntary admissions to officers guarding him that he had murdered two women in Tallahassee,” reads the reports. “He would also place a telephone call to his mother and make these same admissions.”

Glee remains in custody without bond.
