Man Who Tried To Kill Himself In Court Has Been Given The Death Penalty

A man who tried to kill himself in court has been given the death penalty for murdering Sydney Loofe, a woman who he met through Tinder.

Four years after he committed the murder, Aubrey Trail, 54, has been sentenced to death.

Trail originally claimed Loofe died from erotic asphyxiation, but later admitted to murdering her, saying she 'freaked' out when he told her about his lifestyle of defrauding antique dealers and group sex.

He said in a statement to the court: "Almost everything I've said before was a lie unless it benefitted me.

"I lured her there to try and pull her into our group.

"But once I sat Sydney down and explained to her our criminal activities and group sex I knew I had made a big mistake."

He added: "The truth is I killed her because of her reaction to what I had told her.

"I had no doubt she'd tell people what I told her.

"She did nothing but reject my lifestyle and threaten to expose it and I killed her for it."

Judge Vicky Johnson said: "The state has proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the murder of Sydney Loofe demonstrates extreme depravity by the ordinary standards of morality and intelligence."

In 2019, Trail was appearing at Saline County Courthouse, where he is said to have stood up and shouted 'Baily is innocent and I curse you all,' before attempting to cut this own throat, SF Gate reported. He was handcuffed for the remainder of the trial.

She was then strangled to death and then her body was driven to the town of Edgar, some 90 miles from her hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska.

Her body was dumped, cut up and stuffed into bin bags.

Loofe had already met Boswell for a date the day before she died.

The last time anyone heard from the 24-year-old was on the night of a second date on 15 November 2017, when she posted a picture of herself on Snapchat writing: 'Ready for my date'.

She was reported missing the next day by her mother after she failed to show up for work at a hardware store in Lincoln.

Bailey Boswell has been sentenced to life in prison.
