The mother of a Florida man accused of strangling a teenage Black Lives Matter protester and killing an elderly woman said her son called her from jail and confessed to the slayings, according to a new report.
Aaron Glee Jr., 49, who was arrested Sunday in the deaths of 19-year-old activist Oluwatoyin Salau and Victoria Sims, 75, called his mother, Sandra Cutliff, later that night and confessed to the killings, the Daily Mail reported Tuesday.
Cutliff, 67, told the outlet that her son said he met Salau on a bus and invited her to his house so she could shower. He told her the teenager asked him for the drug ecstasy and when he refused she bit him and called him a “n—-r” — sending him into a rage.
“He told me that after she got out of the shower she wanted ‘molly,’” Cutliff said. “He told her he wasn’t going to buy it. He said she called him a f—ass n—-r and bit him. That’s what triggered him off.”
Cutliff said Sims, who knew Glee so well that he called the elderly woman his “white grandmother,” angered him when she visited and called him a “slob,” so he killed her.
Salau, whose body was found Saturday, recently spoke at a George Floyd rally in Tallahassee, where she met Simms, a well-known local campaigner for Democratic politics.
Sims was last seen June 11, and Salau on June 6.
Cutliff said she did not know why her son allegedly committed the two murders, but said he suffered from mental health problems — and had been in a psychotic downward spiral in recent weeks, the Mail said.
Glee had a lengthy rap sheet and was out on bail at the time of his arrest for allegedly viciously assaulting another woman days earlier. In that case, he was charged on June 9 and accused of kicking a woman in the stomach after she refused to have sex with him.
His criminal record dates to 1989, and includes robbery, car theft and credit card fraud convictions, the Mail reported.
Sylvia Hubbard, head of the Minority Alliance for Advocating Community Awareness and Action, who worked with Glee in the past, said his arrest had shaken the charity.
“It’s affecting all of us,” Hubbard told the outlet. “I was on my way to Aaron’s house on Thursday. I’m always fussing with him. Was I the next victim, would he have hurt me? When I talked to him on Thursday I didn’t realize that he was crashing.”
Cutliff did not return a phone call from The Post on Tuesday.
