SALINE COUNTY – New court documents reveal Bailey Boswell and Aubrey Trail conspired to commit murder months before the killing of Sydney Loofe in November 2017.
The new records show that in July 2017, Trail and Boswell, who are both facing first-degree murder charges for the killing of Loofe, started to “promote or facilitate the commission of first-degree murder.”
The two are now being charged with criminal conspiracy to commit murder on top of first-degree murder and improper disposal of human skeletal remains.
The documents also state Boswell “solicited young females through social networking sites,” and the two eventually “selected a victim to murder.”
The two then purchased the tools used to kill Loofe, and disposed of her body sometime between Nov. 15 and December 4, 2017.
