Detectives say a father killed his daughter’s 19-year-old boyfriend by stabbing him several times and then putting him in the trunk of his car after finding out that he had sold her to a se*x trafficking ring.
On January 10, John Eisenman, 60, was charged with first-degree mur*der. He is being held at the Spokane County Jail in Washington on a $1 million bond.
Last month, Andrew Sorensen’s rotting body was found in the trunk of a parked car on Spokane’s East Everett Avenue, police said Monday. Police think he was killed in November of last year.
Eisenman discovered in October of that year that his juvenile daughter had been se*x trafficked into Seattle by Sorensen for $1,000, according to a police press release.
He was able to rescue the girl from the city and bring her back to Spokane that month.
Then he found out that Sorensen would be at a house in Airway Heights, so he drove there and waited for the 19-year-old.
“During that encounter, Eisenman took the victim hostage, tied him up, and put him in the trunk of a car.” After that, Eisenman hit the victim in the head with a cinder block and then stabbed him many times, killing him, according to the police.
“Eisenman drove the car to a remote area in North Spokane County after the mu*rder, where he left it with the body still inside.”
Before last month, the car was left in the country. Someone then drove it to Spokane and left it on East Everett Avenue. The police say they don’t think that person knew there was a dead body in the back.
When people started to look through the car, they found the body.
She told her boyfriend and another friend that they saw the car and thought it had been there for a while.
she told KHQ-TV, “They were just looking around and for some reason they decided to look in the trunk. All I hear is, ‘There’s a body.'”
Police said Eisenman was arrested and turned himself in without any problems. Before he was arrested, he didn’t have a recent history of violent cri*me.
