Lincoln police sent out alerts about Boswell and Trail, who they believe traveled the Central Plains and Southeast defrauding people with counterfeit coins.
They face up to 10 years behind bars and a $250,000 fine if they’re convicted of interstate transport of stolen goods. But both Trail and his attorney recently said they expect prosecutors to file more serious charges—relating to Loofe’s death—in the coming weeks.
Last month, Trail told Channel 8 in Lincoln that he expects to be charged in Loofe’s case soon. “There have been rumors from the courthouse that this will probably be a death penalty case.”Trail also spoke to the Journal Star, saying that he and Boswell, originally from Iowa, are “obviously suspects” but wouldn’t answer potentially incriminating questions.
They compared Trail’s mugshot to a grainy photo and police sketch of a man suspected of killing two teenage girls in Delphi, Indiana: Abigail Williams, 13, and Liberty German, 14.
But Huston Pullen, a spokesman with the FBI’s Omaha office, said the persons of interest are not currently suspected in other slayings.
The alleged swindlers “came into a local coin dealer multiple times and pocketed several coins worth thousands of dollars while they distracted an employee,” the post said.
