Father believed a 19-year-old he allegedly murdered sold daughter to sex trafficker, police say

SPOKANE, Wash. (WFLA) – A father is accused of killing his daughter’s girlfriend because he thought he sold her to the sex trade in Seattle last year.

The case began in October 2020 when 60-year-old John Eisenman found out that his underage daughter’s girlfriend had allegedly sold her to a sex trafficking organization in Seattle.

Eisenman was able to rescue and return his daughter to Spokane the same month.

Police believe that in November 2020, Eisenman learned that his girlfriend, 19-year-old Aaron Sorensen, would be in Airway Heights.

After a confrontation, Eisenman allegedly abducted his girlfriend, tied him up and placed him in the trunk of a vehicle.

Police say Eisenman hit the victim in the head with a slag block and stabbed him repeatedly in the stomach, causing his death.

“After the killing, Eisenman drove the vehicle to a remote area of ‚Äč‚ÄčNorth Spokane County and left the car with the body still inside. The vehicle remained at this location until it was moved in October 2021 by a 3rd party and driven to Spokane. At present, it is believed not that the third party knew the body was in the trunk.The vehicle, with the body still in the trunk, was left at Everett [Ave.] Location. While parking on Everett, individuals rummaged through the car and took objects as they made the gruesome discovery, “Spokane police wrote in a Facebook post.

Eisenman, who has no criminal history or record of violence, has been arrested on a charge of first-degree murder.
