NELIGH, NE —The alleged con artist suspected of murdering Sydney Loofe, the young Nebraska woman who went missing after a Tinder date, has claimed that he accidentally killed her during consensual group sex.
Aubrey Trail claims that he and Loofe were playing out a sexual fantasy scene with at least two other women in the room. He said that while Loofe, 24, was on a date with his girlfriend, he accidentally suffocated her — and deserves to die for it. “It was suffocation. It happened in Saline County. A life for a life — that’s the rules in my world. I should be put to death,” he told Omaha World-News.
Trail has also stated that he’s offered to talk to the FBI about another similar death that occurred two years ago. He says he has threatened the FBI that he would keep talking to the media and supplying “gruesome” details about crimes if he’s not given what he wants. What he wants remains unclear, however.
In a bizarre interview, Trail told 1011NOW that he turned his home into a business where customers could play out “fantasies.” Trail claims that they’d pay between “five hundred and ten thousand dollars cash.”
“Our lives were full of lots of ladies,” Trail said. “Some traveled with us, worked for me, and there was lots of parties, travel, and sex.”
“Everyone received an allowance weekly,” Trail continued. “If someone wanted to make thousands of dollars, they could agree to let someone play out their fantasies with them. Fantasies paid from $500 to $10,000 cash.”
The last time anyone heard from Sydney Loofe was on November 15, when she posted a picture of herself online with the message: “Ready for my date.” Her body was found in December near Edgar.Her date, Bailey Boswell, and Trail have been persons of interest in the case.
Investigators said that Loofe spent the evening with Boswell after meeting her on the dating app, and that it was the pair’s second date. But Trail told the Omaha World-News that his girlfriend had no part in the murder.
He said that Loofe, a clerk from Lincoln, was a willing participant in a sexual fantasy with himself and at least two other women in a room. But that Boswell, whom he lived with, was outside of the room and passed out from drug use when Loofe died.
After Loofe vanished, federal agents detained Boswell and Trail on charges of transporting stolen goods across state lines.
According to the federal indictment, Trail used a fake identity to offer gold coins to two victims, and that he and Boswell drafted false documents and websites make the scam appear legitimate. Prosecutors allege that the victims lost $400,000 as a result of the scam.
They have pleaded not guilty to the charges, and a trial has been set for March.
Trail is behind bars at the Leavenworth Detention Center in Kansas.
In a bizarre video posted on Facebook prior to their arrests, Boswell and Trail said claims they were not cooperating with the police investigation were false.
Boswell said she and Loofe had back-to-back dates the nights of November 14 and 15. She said she picked Loofe up at her home on both nights and they drove around smoking weed.
Bowell said that when the date was over, she offered to take Loofe home, but Loofe asked to be dropped off at a friend’s house, instead.
Despite Trail’s confession, no one has been charged in connection with Sydney Loofe’s death. Saline County Attorney Tad Eickman said that local and federal prosecutors are still awaiting forensic tests on evidence gathered at several locations.
