Aubrey Trail wasn’t present for the second day in a row as testimony centered around the discovery of Sydney Loofe’s dismembered remains Wednesday.
Trail, 52, chose not to appear in court for the second time following his outburst and attempted suicide attempt on Monday.
Court proceedings continued without the defendant as FBI agent Eli McBride continued his testimony. McBride detailed crime scene photos which were taken in rural Clay County where Sydney’s remains were found. Dozens of photos were projected on a courtroom monitor; however, the most gruesome evidence photos were passed to the jury. One by one, they somberly glanced at the photos.
McBride testified that Sydney’s remains were scattered in bags along two gravel roads and found in 13 different pieces in early December 2017.
Evidence found in rural Clay County was linked Trail’s apartment and to Sydney, according to testimony. Investigators revealed that a “sauna suit” found along country roads fit the description of the sauna suit box uncovered in the basement apartment in Wilber where Trail and Bailey Boswell resided. Also found in the apartment were a hatchet and a book titled "The Human Body Atlas." A white Columbia coat Sydney was wearing in photos before her date with Boswell was found in a ditch near her remains.
