The same day that 19-year-old activist Oluwatoyin "Toyin" Salau posted about her rapist on Twitter and chronicled the incident in detail, she went missing. Today her body was found and her murder is getting little to no coverage by the media.

Just hours before her disappearance, Toyin tweeted "Silence is the best weapon for some but not for me I will not be silenced." She also posted about how she had been molested by a man on Richview and Park Ave., who came to her as a "man of God." He offered to drive her to a nearby church she had been staying at for the past few days so she could go and collect her belongings. She had even given out the details of his appearance: "Mid 40's lives in a gray painted duplex apartment-style house drives a white clean Silverado Chevrolet truck." A short while later, she was dead. 

There is reason to believe that Toyin's rapist was involved in her murder and disappearance. We demand the Florida Sheriff’s Department Tallahassee Station and the City of Tallahassee conduct a full, thorough investigation into Toyin's death, as well as identify the man who sexually assaulted her. Black women are frequent victims of rape and murder, and we are obligated to stand up and protect them.

Toyin was a model, a passionate activist, a black woman, a TEENAGER who was far too young to die. She spent her last days fighting for black lives. Now we need to fight for hers.
