TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — New court documents reveal what led police to discover the bodies of 75-year-old Victoria Sims and 19-year-old Oluwatoyin Salau Saturday evening at a Tallahassee home.

The reoprt says investigators were initially called to Sims’ home after family reported her missing. Detectives found the door to her apartment ajar, her home ransacked and electronics and Sims’ car were missing.

According to the court documents, when asked about anyone with whom Sims may have had recent contact with, a family friend said Sims often gave rides to a man named Aaron who lives on Monday Road.

TPD received a warrant to track the location on Sims’ phone which led officers to the home of Aaron Glee, Jr. in the 2100 block of Monday Road, according to the court records.

Officials say they found Sims' car parked outside, stuck in mud with a white sheet covering the back of the vehicle, including the license plate, which was bent upwards, "as though attempting to conceal the vehicle's identity," according to court documents.

Court documents outline call records showing Sims had spoken to Glee on the phone for about two minutes on Friday, June 12 at 10:55 a.m. Every call after that went to Sims' voicemail.

Sims’ cell phone and Florida license were later found in a trash can outside the house.

Authorities forced entry into the home, fearing Sims was being held inside, according to the court documents.

Police say Sims' body was located in a bedroom. The body was covered with a white blanket and her wrists and ankles were bound behind her back, according to the court documents.

According to the report, the home smelled "strongly" of cigarette smoke, as if someone had been recently smoking.

A police dog was brought in to track the scent, which lead officers into the woods about 200 feet behind the home, where they discovered Salau’s body, covered in leaves.

While officers were on the scene Saturday, a cousin of Glee's told investigators Glee purchased a one-way bus ticket from Tallahassee to West Palm Beach where Glee has family.

Officials say Glee paid for the ticket in cash and did not have any baggage in his possession.

Authorities say officers detained Glee at a bus stop in Orlando after seeing what appeared to be a blood stain on his pants.

Glee is charged with premeditated murder and kidnapping.
