WILBER, Neb. (KMTV) — Aubrey Trail and Bailey Boswell allegedly just feet from Sydney Loofe's home...and while she was working. Prosecutors believe it paints a clearer picture that they intended to murder the 24-year-old.
Prosecutors follow Boswell and Trail's movements leading up to the disappearance through surveillance and phone records:
- November 14, 2017 - They check into a Lincoln hotel and Boswell goes on a date with Loofe...they allegedly drive around and smoke marijuana.
- The next morning Boswell and Trail purchase hacksaws, drop cloths and snap-blade utility knives.
- Investigator Robert Hurley testifies phone data puts them a block away from Loofe's apartment minutes after she leaves for work...and Boswell's phone is tracked following Loofe's route to work.
- Trail is seen feet away from Loofe while she was working at Menards in Lincoln the afternoon she went missing...Trail appears to look back over his shoulder at Loofe.
- Hurley says, "He came walking from the front doors and then he began to make a slight right."
- Boswell and Trail are also seen purchasing food grinders, a weed cutter and a folding saw from Aardvark Antique Mall in Lincoln where they rented space.
- The general manager says she's never used Clorox wipes or hacksaws on antiques.
- She says she saw Trail and Boswell that day and say they didn't sell re-purposed antiques.
- When asked about using tools on antiques such as saws or tin snips on antiques, Aardvark Antique mall General Manager Laurie Orman says, "You wouldn't want to use them. I mean a repurposer might do that...if they were cutting things up but if you want to keep the value...you don't want to do that."
- Prosecutors say they also bought trash bags and more cleaning supplies from Dollar General hours before Sydney Loofe was killed on the 15th and it was no accident.
