The disappearance of Sydney Loofe

A new season of Late Edition: Crime Beat Chronicles is available and we are traveling to Wilber, Nebraska. In 2017, 24-year-old Sydney Loofe quit her job to go on a second date with someone she met on a dating app, and she never came home. The events that followed focused on Aubrey Trail and Bailey Boswell, who were ultimately convicted in the case, and were bizarre in the way they played out on social media and in the courtroom.

The first two episodes are available now and two more are on the way.
