Father Killed His Daughter's Boyfriend

Detectives have disclosed that a father killed his daughter’s 19-year-old lover by repeatedly stabbing him and then stuffing him inside a car trunk after discovering he’d sold her into a sex trafficking network.

John Eisenman, 60, was charged with first-degree murder and is being held at the Spokane County Jail in Washington on a $1 million bond.

According to authorities, Andrew Sorensen’s decomposing body was discovered in the trunk of an abandoned automobile on East Everett Avenue in Spokane last month. Detectives suspect he was murdered last November.

According to a police news release, Eisenman found in October of that year that Sorensen had sex trafficked his adolescent daughter into Seattle for $1,000. That month, he was able to rescue the girl from the city and bring her back to Spokane.

He then discovered that Sorensen would be at a location in Airway Heights, so he drove there and waited for the 19-year-old.

‘During that interaction, Eisenman abducted the victim, tied him up and placing him in a vehicle’s trunk. ‘Eisman then beat the victim with a cinder block in the head and then stabbed him repeatedly, killing him,’ police said.

Eisenman took the vehicle to an isolated spot in North Spokane County after the homicide and abandoned it with the victim still inside.’

The car was abandoned in the countryside until last month, when it was driven to Spokane and abandoned on East Everett Avenue. Officials say that person had no idea there was a body in the rear.

The body was found when people began searching through the vehicle.

Amber Hellmann said her boyfriend and another friend said they noticed the car had been there for a while.

‘They were just looking around and for some reason, they decided to look in the trunk and all I hear is, ‘there’s a body,” she told KHQ-TV.

Police said Eisenman was arrested and surrendered to officers without incident. Prior to his detention, he had no recent violent criminal history.
