She went on a Tinder date. She ended up dismembered, police say

Sydney Loofe Prosecutors allege that Aubrey Trail told investigators he he strangled Sydney Loofe 24 with an extension cord

Six months after the body of a Nebraska woman was discovered, murder charges have been filed against two "persons of interest" in her death.

Trail has previous convictions for theft and writing worthless checks in Kansas. After learning about Loofe's last Tinder date, police executed a search warrant at the apartment, where they determined that somebody must have been washing the walls.

Sydney Loofe, 24, was reported missing the day after her date with Bailey Boswell, 24, in November previous year, and weeks later her remains were discovered in several bin bags.

The pair were charged with first degree murder and improper disposal of human skeletal remains.

In May, Boswell pleaded guilty in an unrelated gold coin scheme in Kansas.

Loofe's parents, George and Susie, have not spoken to the media about the 24-year-old cashier's death but posted on the Celebrating Sydney Loofe Facebook page that she was often "lonely" even though she had a lot of friends.

They've been held in the Saline County jail since then.

Loofe's mother reported her missing on November 16, and in December, her body was found stuffed into garbage bags that had been dumped in a field near Edgar, a city roughly 90 miles southwest of Lincoln.

"It wasn't supposed to go to the extreme it went, of course not", he told the World-Herald at the time. "It wasn't meant that she was to die". He told the Omaha World Herald Loofe had been a willing participant in a sex game that went wrong, and that she had something around her neck when she died. Authorities say dismembered remains were found in several garbage bags, east of Clay Center.

In court documents, investigators also said a security video from a Lincoln Home Depot show Trail and Boswell buying tools that were used to dismember Loofe, according to KETV.

The released court documents say Trail told an Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent that he strangled Loofe with an extension cord, KETV reported.

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.

"A life for a life - that's the rules in my world", Trail told the World-Herald in January.

'I should be put to death'.

Following her graduation, she moved to Lincoln where she took a job as a cashier for the home improvement store Menards.

Both Trail and Boswell were persons of interest early on in Loofe's disappearance and arrested on November 30, the Journal-Star reported.
