Nebraska couple charged with brutally murdering, dismembering Tinder date

Nebraska couple charged with brutally murdering, dismembering Tinder date

Loofe, of Lincoln, Neb., vanished after the date on November 15 past year, after telling a co-worker how excited she was about going on the date. "Let's get justice for Sydney Loofe", he said at one point.

Bailey Boswell, left, and Aubrey Trail, right, were charged Monday in the murder of 24-year-old Sydney Loofe.

Trail is representing himself. The Nebraska Commission on Public Advocacy, which is representing Boswell, declined to comment Tuesday.

"It wasn't supposed to go to the extreme it went, of course not", Trail told the newspaper, adding that something was around Loofe's neck when she died.

In newly unsealed documents, prosecutors allege that Trail and Boswell were captured by surveillance footage at a Home Depot on November 15, buying the tools that they would use to cut up Loofe's body. Loofe met her date, a woman named Bailey Boswell, on Tinder - a popular dating app - and soon Boswell would be picking up Loofe at home, according to a criminal complaint.

The 24-year-old's dismembered body was found stuffed in a number of garbage bags in December, three weeks after her disappearance.

Trial told an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent he strangled Loofe with an extension cord after she went on a date with his roommate.

Police said an "analysis of digital evidence" led them to her corpse, according to the New York Post.

They have been held in the Saline County jail since then, though the charges in Loofe's death weren't announced until Monday.

Authorities say that the pair killed Loofe, 24, on November 15 or 16.

Prosecutors in the case include Saline County Attorney Tad Eickmann and special appointed prosecutors from the Nebraska Attorney General's Office, Michael Guinan and Corey O'Brien. They said they had met Loofe and driven around doing drugs, but nothing more.

But in a post on a "Celebrating Sydney Loofe" Facebook page established by the parents, they had written that they suspected she was a victim of human trafficking. "She took to Tinder to look for that person and unfortunately, found someone that had nothing but evil plans for her". Authorities believe Boswell helped Trail dispose of the body.

Trail told the outlet that Loofe was accidentally suffocated during the sex act.

'It happened in Saline County. "It wasn't meant that she was to die", he told police.

Trail, in a phone call to The World-Herald, has said he believes in the death penalty and feels he deserves it.

'A life for a life - that's the rules in my world. "I should be put to death".

Authorities identified the pair as persons of interest in her disappearance and the two reportedly responded in Facebook videos denying their involvement.

Sydney Loofe's body was found dumped and in pieces in a field near the town of Edgar, Nebraska.

Loofe graduated from Neligh-Oakdale High School in 2011, where her father works as the principal. She came from a devoted Lutheran family, and was involving in sports, band, one-act plays and Future Business Leaders of America in high school.
