Sydney Loofe murder: Nebraska couple, Aubrey Trail and Bailey Boswell charged with Lincoln Tinder death in sex game gone wrong.
Charged with first degree premeditated murder charges were Aubrey Trail, 51 and Bailey Boswell, 23, following a Tuesday morning court appearance in Saline County. The couple reported Omaha World-Herald were also charged with improper disposal of human skeletal remains.
The pair’s indictment follows the couple initially denying any involvement in her disappearance before changing their story upon Loofe’s body being found at a later date saying her death was the result of an accidental group sex act gone wrong.
During February media interviews, Trail insisted Loofe was a willing participant in a sexual fantasy with himself and two other women. Trail said his girlfriend, Boswell, was high on drugs and in another room when Loofe died.
During Tuesday’s court appearance, unsealed court documents showed Trail admitting strangled Loofe to death with an extension cord and that a woman helped to both clean up the crime scene and dispose of Loofe’s body.
Trail said Loofe died of an ‘accidental suffocation’ at his hands.
Told Trail in February, ‘A life for a life — that’s the rules in my world,’ adding, ‘I should be put to death.’
Loofe, who is from Lincoln, went missing after going on a Nov. 15 date with Boswell, whom she met through the dating app Tinder, according to cops.
Authorities identified the pair as persons of interest with both Trail and Boswell posting Facebook videos denying any involvement as speculation mounted following news of the 24 year old woman’s abrupt disappearance.

Notice of possible foul play came after federal agents tracked the couple at a hotel on Nov. 30 near Branson, Missouri, and brought them back to Nebraska on fraud indictments in a separate case.

Trail and Boswell were both ordered held without bail at Saline County jail.
The couple’s murder charges follow, George and Susie Loofer, Sydney’s parents previously posting on a Facebook page, Celebrating Sydney Loofe, ‘She was looking for that one special person with whom she could spend time. She took to Tinder to look for that person and unfortunately, found someone that had nothing but evil plans for her’.
