There weren’t two other girls there. $15,000 was not paid for a sexual fantasy,” said Trail, who was in charge of pointing out that Sydney’s murder was unplanned, but that he had frightened when she was “invited” to join their sexual circle and criminal activities.
Since they couldn’t expose themselves or leave loose ends, when the young woman resisted, Trail killed and dismembered her with a saw to “protect” her way of life.
Vampires, murders and crimes
As for their practices, three testified that they were lured into the cult of sex Trail and Boswell via Tinder between June 2017 and Sydney’s death in November. As hilarious as it is sinister, Trail said so he was a vampire who could fly and read minds. and they could get more “powers” by killing peopleeven more if they had been tortured first.
The women would have sex with Trail and Boswell in exchange for a monthly monetary fee, which included help in antique trade scams. They were to call him “Papa” and Boswell “the witch queen”.
