Expert testifies about Sydney Loofe autopsy

An expert testifying at the trial of a man charged with killing and dismembering a 24-year-old Lincoln woman says the woman’s body was cut into 14 pieces.

Pathologist Dr. Michelle Elieff said Monday that her exam also showed bruising and other injuries that suggest Sydney Loofe struggled before her death.     

FBI Agent Mike Maseth also testified Monday that Aubrey Trail’s girlfriend, Bailey Boswell, told another person on Tinder that she would be busy for a couple days on the day Sydney Loofe was killed.     

This is the fourth week of Trail’s trial. He wasn’t in the courtroom Monday and hasn’t been since he slashed at his neck June 24. He and Boswell are charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of Loofe.

Her body parts were found in ditches along a state highway, weeks after her November 2017 disappearance.     

Boswell is awaiting trial.
