She said she had been “molested in Tallahassee, Florida” by a person “disguised as a man of God.” Toyin Salau said she had sought refuge at a church in the area as a way of escaping her “unjust living conditions.”


Tallahassee Police Department has now confirmed that Salau was one of two homicide victims whose bodies were discovered on Saturday, 13th of June. 49-year-old, Aaron Glee Jr. has been arrested in connection with both cases.

Many have reacted to this horrific incident. Toyin was very active in fighting and speaking for the Black Lives Matter Movement. She was last seen at the ground where she was protesting.

It’s not that all lives don’t matter, but right now our lives matter,” Salau was filmed telling the crowd at a recent protest, as seen in the video below. “Black lives matter. Black trans lives matter. Trans lives matter. Because, guess what? We’re all minorities. But right now, let’s focus on the person that got killed. Tony McDade was a black trans man. We are doing this for him. We are doing this for our brothers and our sisters who got shot. But we’re doing this for every black person because, at the end of the day, I can’t take my fucking skin color off. I can’t mask this shit, okay? Everywhere
