A father has been charged with murder for allegedly killing his father daughter‘s boyfriend, whom he blamed for selling the underage girl into the sex trade.
Authorities say that after safely returning his daughter to the city of Spokane, he discovered the location of 19-year-old Andrew Sorensen, who he believed was responsible.
He then drove to a residence in Airway Heights in Spokane County and reportedly waited for the boyfriend to arrive.
“During that encounter, Eisenman abducted the victim, tied him up and placed him in the trunk of a vehicle,” the Spokane Police Department said in a statement.
Eisenman then attacked the victim by hitting him on the head with a cinder block and then stabbed him repeatedly, causing him to die.
“After the murder, Eisenman drove the vehicle to a remote area in North Spokane County and left the car with the body still inside.”
The car remained there until last month when someone drove it to Spokane and left it in town and the body was discovered as people searched the abandoned vehicle.
Amber Hellmann told KHQ-TV that her boyfriend and a friend were working outside and noticed that the car had been sitting in the same spot for a long time.
“They were just looking around and for some reason they decided to look in the trunk and all I hear is ‘there is a body,'” she told the TV station.
Police say they do not believe the person who moved the car knew there was a body in it, and believe the victim was murdered in November 2020.
Mr. Eisenman, who has no criminal record of violence or criminal history, was charged with first degree murder and is being held on $1 million bail.
