Police: Trail bought saws, bleach, trash bags before killing

July 1, 2019

WILBER, Neb. (AP) — Investigators say they had hard time believing the man on trial for the murder and dismemberment of a Lincoln woman.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that FBI investigators testified Monday about holes they found in 52-year-old Aubrey Trail’s statements about the death of 24-year-old Sydney Loofe.

FBI agent Mike Maseth said investigators never found evidence to support Trail’s statement that Loofe had agreed on video to participate in a sexual fantasy that he says led to her death.

Loofe’s dismembered body was found weeks after her November 2017 disappearance in trash bags in a field about 90 miles (145 kilometers) away from Lincoln.

Police say Loofe had gone on a Tinder date Nov. 14 with 25-year-old Bailey Boswell, who was Trail’s girlfriend. Both Trail and Boswell are charged with first-degree murder and face a possible death penalty.

Trail’s trial is expected to continue until July 8.
