A 19-year old American with Nigerian roots, Oluwatoyin ‘Toyin’ Salau, has been found dead after she went missing last week.

Toyin, just 19-years of age, was an ardent Black Lives Matter activist who had been vocal during the recent protests stemming from the murder of George Floyd by a white police officer.

She had revealed on social media that she had recently been sexually assaulted.

Not long after, she went missing and this morning, she became a trending topic on Twitter with many mourning her passing.

Her body had reportedly been found over the weekend in Tallahassee, the state capital of the U.S state of Florida.

Tallahassee police have revealed they are investigating a double homicide and have arrested one suspect.

Twitter has descended into mourning with news of her death – another black person brutally killed in the United States under mysterious circumstances.
