Oluwatoyin Salau is a 19-year-old Black Lives Matter Protester from Tallahasse, Floride who was missing. And last seen on June 6 near Wahnish Way and Orange Avenue, according to the Tallahassee Police Department.
On June 7, 2020, she revealed on Twitter that she was molested by a black man on Richview and Park Ave. She also said that the man came to her like God who offered a ride and help to find someplace to sleep.
He came disguised as a man of God and ended up picking me up from nearby Saxon Street. I entered his truck only because I carry anything to defend myself not even a phone (which is currently at the church) and I have poor vision. I trusted the holy spirit to keep me safe.

Black women are the canaries in the coal mine. Unprotected and neglected. Ouwatoyin “Toyin” Salau was only 19 years old and had so much light left to give to this ever darkening world. Rest in power Ouwatoyin. We will not let bastards win. #JusticeForOluwatoyinSalau pic.twitter.com/ealk7YakZf
