A COUPLE, allegedly involved in a “witchcraft” cult, are facing the death penalty after being convicted of killing and dismembering a 24-year-old Nebraska women they lured using Tinder.
Bailey Boswell, 26, was found guilty of first degree murder on Wednesday in the death of 24-year-old Sydney Loofe, while her boyfriend, Aubrey Trail, 54, was found guilty in a July 2019 trial.
Both are facing the death penalty after being convicted of killing Loofe in November 2017, and allegedly chopping her remains up into 14 pieces.
Loofe reportedly went on a date with Boswell after the two met on Tinder. Boswell used the fake name, Audrey, when speaking to the victim.
According to reports, Loofe was excited after the two met. However, the victim was strangled to death the second time she met up with Boswell.
Trail, in his own trial, alleged that Loofe was choked to death accidentally during a sex game between the three of them.
Loofe’s remains were found in garbage bags scattered across rural roads in Nebraska.
Testimony at Boswell’s trial revealed that she and Trail had lured other women using dating apps before, and that the two claimed to be in charge of a witch coven, according to the Lincoln Journal Star.
A woman named Ashley Hills took the stand in the trial earlier this month and claimed that Trail said he was a vampire, and that Boswell was his witch queen.
The two reportedly spoke often at their home of killing and witchcraft, according to Hills. She said they told her she, too, could gain magical powers if she agreed to kill someone.
Hills also met Boswell on Tinder, though Boswell was using the fake name Jenna during that exchange. She said she initially agreed to meet Trail because Boswell said he was her “sugar daddy.”
She said she was initially interested in being a part of the “witch coven,” and that the pair told her, “to get your power, you would have to breathe in someone’s last breath.”
However, she eventually came to her senses and left the couple. She said she never met or heard of Loofe before she was killed.
