Nebraska authorities: Couple charged with brutal murder, dismemberment of Tinder date

Nebraska authorities charged a couple Monday with dismembering and killing a 24-year-old woman they met through Tinder.

Aubrey Trail, 51, and 23-year-old Bailey Boswell were charged in Sydney Loofe’s murder, according to KMTV. The two appeared in Saline County court on Tuesday, where Trail said he intended on representing himself and Boswell requested a lawyer.

Police said that Loofe matched with Boswell on Tinder, a dating app, and the two went out in November 2017 and had planned to go on a second date the next day, ABC Action News reported.

Loofe’s mother reported her missing on November 16th, and in December, her remains were discovered in garbage bags that had been left in a field near Edgar, a city approximately 90 miles southwest of Lincoln.

Prosecutors also indicated that Trail told authorities he strangled Loofe with an extension cord. Detectives think that Boswell, who resided with Trail, helped him dismember Loofe and get rid of her body.

Boswell and Trail were quickly deemed suspects in the case and were in arrested in Missouri on unrelated charges.

They’ve remained in custody at the Saline County jail since their arrest.

Trail has told the media that Loofe’s death was accidental but didn’t provide any further details. Investigators said Trail and Boswell were caught on video at a Home Depot purchasing tools used to dismember Loofe, hours before she was killed and while she was still at work.

Police haven’t revealed a motive for the slaying.

The Nebraska Attorney General’s office, which is prosecuting the case, said it is thinking about seeking the death penalty.
