Three women testified Tuesday that Aubrey Trail and Bailey Boswell recruited them into a cult.
All of the women testified that they first met Boswell through the Tinder dating app — just as Sydney Loofe had — before being introduced to their "sugar daddy" Trail. They were promised financial help by following a set of rules.
Some of Trail's rules, included that the women walk around naked in his Wilber apartment, check in every three hours with a call or text, ask permission to do anything, and they were not allowed to be with another man. Breaking these rules would result in whippings by Boswell, choking with a belt or performing sexual acts.
The women — whose names were ordered not to be published by the trial judge on Tuesday — said they were slowly introduced into the witchcraft and torture talks. All of them said they were told that they needed to take someone's soul to gain more powers.
These were key witnesses for the prosecution, who are arguing that Trail and Boswell intentionally lured and murdered Sydney, while the defense claims her death was accidental.
