Aubrey Trail, a person of interest in the disappearance and death of Lincoln resident Sydney Loofe, is in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service, a spokesman said Thursday.
Carlos Najera, a spokesman for the Omaha office of the Marshals Service, said he could provide no further information.
Trail was listed Friday as an inmate at the Leavenworth Detention Center, a maximum-security facility in Leavenworth, Kansas. He was transferred there Wednesday.
Trail, 51, said last month from the Saline County Jail that he had given three statements to the FBI in connection with the Loofe case. He said “having information about a case doesn’t necessarily mean you’re guilty.”
Trail has served two prison terms in Nebraska for forgery and bad checks. He said last month that he expects to be charged in the next few weeks in connection with the death of Loofe, 24, a clerk at a Menards store in Lincoln.
Loofe’s body was found Dec. 4 along a country road in Clay County following an extensive search after she was reported missing in Lincoln on Nov. 16.
Trail said he also expects charges to be filed against his girlfriend, Bailey Boswell, 23, though he insisted that she was not involved in Loofe’s death.
Trail and Boswell, who were living in a basement apartment in Wilber, Nebraska, were named “persons of interest” by the FBI two weeks after Loofe disappeared. They were arrested on Nov. 30 near Branson, Missouri.
