Pair charged with murder of missing Tinder date

Share

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. Investigators said Trail and Boswell were captured on video at a Home Depot in Lincoln on November 15 buying tools used to dismember Loofe, hours before her death and while she was still at work. She had been reported missing after she failed to show up to her job at a Menards store in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Police got their first lead on November 16, when a landlord at an apartment complex reported a strong odor of bleach emanating from the basement.

Trial told an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent he strangled Loofe with an extension cord after she went on a date with his roommate. The two later posted a video to Facebook claiming their innocence, with Trail claiming that he had called police several times but had been ignored by them.

The 24-year-old's dismembered body was found stuffed in a number of garbage bags in December, three weeks after her disappearance. Those charges were filed in court late Monday.

Court documents reveal Trail told Federal Bureau of Investigation agents he had strangled the girl with an extension cord.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Loofe's body was discovered in rural Clay County in early December.

During a February interview with the Omaha World-Herald Trail said that Loofe was a willing participant in a sexual fantasy with himself and two other women.

Loofe had told her co-worker Terra Gehring how excited she was - but the next morning, Loofe didn't show up at work.

'It wasn't supposed to go to the extreme it went, of course not.

'It wasn't meant that she was to die'. The charges alleging unlawful abandoning of human remains carry a possible sentence of up to two years in prison, and nine to twelve months post-release supervision.

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

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. That happened hours before Loofe was seen leaving her job at Menards on November 15.

Judge Bauer set the next hearings for both Trail and Boswell for June 19, when both will tell the court whether they want a preliminary hearing on the felony charges. The pair lived together in Wilber, Neb. He said he believes he should receive the death penalty, the paper reports.
