TWO suspected killers allegedly bought tools to dismember a Tinder date before she was strangled with extension cable, prosecutors say.
Sydney Loofe, 24, posted an eerie “ready for my date” Snapchat selfie but failed to show up at work the next day before her body was discovered weeks later.

Prosecutors say Aubrey Trail, 51, and 23-year-old Bailey Boswell were caught on CCTV buying tools that police believe they later used to dismember the woman.
Investigators say the pair were filmed making the purchases at a Home Depot on November 15, while cashier Miss Loofe, of Nebraska, was at work.
Court documents claim Trail told investigators that he strangled Miss Loofe with an extension cord that night and Boswell, who lived with him, helped chop her up.
They then allegedly stuffed her body parts into trash bags and dumped them in a field 90 miles away before the remains were found in December.

Authorities say Loofe met Boswell on an online dating app in November and they went on their first date the night before she was killed.
Trail and Boswell appeared in Saline County Court on Tuesday to face charges of first-degree murder and the improper disposal of human skeletal remains.
Since the pair were arrested weeks after Miss Loofe’s disappearance, Trail has told several news outlets that her death was accidental.
During an interview with the Omaha World-Herald Trail in February, Trail said that Miss Loofe was a willing participant in a sexual fantasy with himself and two other women.

He claimed his girlfriend, Boswell, was high on drugs in another room when her date accidentally suffocated during the sex act, adding that there had been something around her neck.
Trail told the outlet: “It wasn’t supposed to go to the extreme it went, of course not. It wasn’t meant that she was to die.”
He added that he deserved to die for what he had done, but a month before the confession both Trail and Boswell posted a video online denying their involvement.
