Wilber, Neb. — Investigators have testified that a man on trial for the murder and dismemberment of a Lincoln woman bought saws, a utility knife, bleach and trash bags before and just after the victim went missing.
The Omaha World-Herald reports investigators testified Friday that 52-year-old Aubrey Trail bought those items on Nov. 15 , the day before 24-year-old Sydney Loofe was reported missing by her mother. Loofe’s dismembered body was found weeks later in trash bags in a field about 90 miles 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.
While some of Loofe’s possessions were found along roadsides outside Lincoln, the saws and knife were never found.
Trail’s trial is expected to continue until July 8.
