Tinder Killer Extorted Prison Nurse With Fake Murder-for-Hire Plot: Docs

Taney County Sheriff/Lancaster County Department of Corrections

A 55-year-old woman is accused of helping an inmate on Nebraska’s death row attempt to swindle a former prison nurse out of $25,000 in what investigators say was a fake murder-for-hire scheme.

The plot was allegedly concocted behind bars by Aubrey Trail, the man convicted of killing and dismembering Sydney Loofe after meeting her on a dating app in 2017. After another inmate tipped investigators off, a probe began in mid-March 2021—less than three months before Trail was sentenced to death for Loofe’s murder.

On Sunday, Samantha Al-Rekabi of Lincoln, Nebraska, was arrested. She has since been charged with felony theft by extortion in the case, according to court records.
