Spokane, WA – A father has been arrested for killing a man whom had allegedly sex trafficked his 19-year-old daughter.
The series of events that lead to the death of 19-year-old Andrew Sorenson began in October of 2020, the Spokane Police Department said in a press release posted its official Facebook page on Nov. 1.
That was when 60-year-old John Eisenman said he found out that his then-juvenile daughter had been sold into a Seattle area sex-trafficking ring by her boyfriend.
The father told police he believed Sorenson had sold his daughter for $1,000, KREM reported.
Eisenman was told that his daughter’s boyfriend at the time, Sorenson, was responsible for the sale, according to the Spokane police.
Police said that Eisenman located his daughter and rescued her in October of 2020, and brought her back to Spokane.
A month later, in November of 2020, he found out that Sorenson was going to be in Airway Heights and plotted to confront him, according to the press release.
Police said the father waited for Sorenson and confronted him when he arrived.
According to Spokane police, Eisenman abducted Sorenson at that time.
He tied the 19 year old up and put him in the truck of his fiance’s vehicle, bashed him in the head with a cinder block, and then stabbed him to death, the press release said.
Then Eisenman drove the car to a remote part of North Spokane County and abandoned it with Sorenson’s body still in the trunk, according to police.
The car stayed there until it was moved by a third party in October of this year.
Police said that person didn’t know the body was in the trunk when they drove the car to Spokane and parked it on Everett.
It wasn’t until three car burglars broke into the vehicle to pilfer it on Oct. 22 that they discovered Sorenson’s dead body, according to the police department’s press release.
Eisenman was arrested without incident and charged with first-degree murder.
Police said he had been booked into the Spokane County Jail and was being held on a $1 million bond, NBC News reported.
Eisenman has no prior violent criminal record, WFLA reported.
