A father from Spokane, Washington, was arrested late last week and charged with killing the man he claims sex-trafficked his teenage daughter.
John Eisenman, 60, has been charged with first-degree murder over the death of 19-year-old Andrew Sorensen, whose decomposing body was discovered Oct. 22, according to the Spokane Police Department.

Police stated Eisenman learned in October of last year that “his juvenile daughter was allegedly sold to a sex-trafficking organization in the Seattle area.” The law enforcement agency said the father “obtained information his daughter’s boyfriend (the deceased) may have been the one responsible for her sale.” He was “able to rescue” his daughter later that month.
One month later, in November, Eisenman allegedly abducted Sorensen.
“Eisenman waited for the victim and confronted the 19-year-old as he arrived [at a trailer park in Airway Heights],” police stated. “During that encounter, Eisenman abducted the victim, tying him up and placing him in the trunk of a vehicle. Eisenman subsequently assaulted the victim by hitting him in the head with a cinder block and then stabbed him repeatedly, causing his death.”
After allegedly killing the teenage man, Eisenman put the body in the trunk of a 1991 green Honda Accord and drove it to a remote area in North Spokane and abandoned it, according to KXLY-TV. The vehicle remained there for a year.
It wasn’t until sometime last month that an unidentified person drove the car to East Everett Avenue, where local residents soon began looking through the abandoned car. Eventually, they found the body and called the police.
Eisenman — who was arrested Friday and held on $1 million bond — appeared in court for the first time this week, though he didn’t say much and has yet to enter a plea. The police have noted the father “had no recent criminal history, nor any violent criminal history.”
