Persons of interest in death of Sydney Loofe set for federal trial March 26

BY TORY DUNCAN & ASHLEY D. SWANSON

In December, when the body of 24-year-old Sydney Loofe was found, two suspects, Aubrey Trail, 51, and Bailey Boswell, 23, denied involvement with the disappearance of Loofe, according to a video the duo posted on social media.

The two were arrested in December, in connection with the transportation of stolen goods in Kansas. Trail and Boswell face multi-count indictments related to an alleged fraud scheme in which they are accused of bilking a Kansas couple out of $400,000. Although they were considered persons of interest, there was no arrest for the death of Loofe.
