The State of Nebraska is seeking the death penalty in this case.

Aubrey Trail, Boswell's partner in this case, was found guilty in July 2019.


Prosecutors said Loofe's death was a planned abduction and killing. Aubrey Trail's attorney said Loofe's killing was an accident that occurred as she, Trail and Boswell played out a consensual sex fantasy.

Police found parts of Sydney Loofe's body in rural Clay County, Nebraska over two days in December 2017. Loofe's body had been dismembered and parts of her body were found in several garbage bags east of Clay Center in Clay County.

A cellphone Bailey Boswell used to access her Tinder account was used near where the body parts were found.

Store security video in Lincoln showed Aubrey Trail and Boswell buying tools and supplies used in the dismemberment on November 15.

An autopsy concluded Loofe died from strangulation. Trail admitted to strangling Loofe with an extension cord and Boswell helped clean up the crime scene.
