Man Accused Of Murdering Two Women, Including BLM Activist, 'Would Have Killed Again,' Experts Say
Aaron Glee Jr., who is accused of killing Victoria Sims and Black Lives Matter activist Oluwatoyin Salau, exhibited signs consistent with serial killers, according to expert observers.
A Florida man accused of murdering two women, including a Black Lives Matter activist, may have killed again had he not been caught, according to experts.
Aaron Glee Jr., 49, is accused of killing Oluwatoyin Salau, 19, and Victoria Sims, 75, who were both found dead in his Tallahassee home in June after GPS data from Sims’ phone led investigators to the area. Both women had been reported missing; Salau was last seen on June 6 and Sims on June 11, days before their bodies were found on June 13.
Sims was found slain in a bedroom with her wrists and ankles bound behind her back, according to a probable cause affidavit obtained by Tallahassee Democrat in June. Salua’s body was found covered in leaves in a wooded area outside the home. Glee allegedly admitted to killing both and to keeping Salau captive and sexually assaulting her for three to five days.
It wouldn't be the first time Glee has been accused of violence against women, the Tallahassee Democrat reports. His criminal history dates back to 1989, and it is ridden with domestic violence claims. He allegedly swung at a woman in 2012 and then threw a brick through an ex-girlfriend's window the following year. Were his decades of criminal activity an escalation into murder? Two experts theorize that may have been on his way to becoming a serial killer.
"Glee would have killed again if given the chance and most likely intended to acquire additional victims," Enzo Yaksic, founder of the Atypical Homicide Research Group, told the Tallahassee Democrat.
Yaksic pointed to the binding of Sims, and Glee's criminal history, as a classic indication of serial killing tendencies.
"That his assaults occurred over three decades and his victims were usually female shows that Glee’s hatred toward women, a hallmark of serial homicide, manifested gradually until it culminated in the deaths of Salau and Sims — two women who refused to comply with his demands," he said.
Jeffrey Rinek, a retired FBI agent and criminal profiler, pointed to Glee’s alleged choice to kill both women around the same time. He noted that there was no cooling off period and told the Tallahassee Democrat that this could indicate an intention to keep on killing.
"I think he's a serial killer," Rinek said.
Glee faces charges of first-degree murder and second-degree murder, according to online jail records. He did not speak during his first appearance in June.
