Crowd goes nuts for food at Edgar fundraiser

A line of people reaching throughout the Edgar Legion and outside to the sidewalk wait for their meal during the Fish and Nut Fry Fundraiser for Eric Musgrave, Saturday, Feb. 3. Musgrave was diagnosed with Metastatic Melanoma in May 2017, and although all of the lymphnodes on his neck have been removed, he still has to travel to Omaha every three weeks for an experimental drug, and has scans done every two months. The funds raised during the benefit will go toward bills, fuel, and meals.

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.

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON
