A man from Washing State in US is in police custody for allegedly killing his daughter’s boyfriend for selling her to a sex trafficking ring.
60-year old John Eisenman was arrested for the first degree murder of the 19-year old whose body was discovered almost a year later after his murder.
Police in Spokane said that the deceased’s body was found in the trunk of a vehicle on October 22 and was identified to be the boyfriend to the suspect’s daughter even though his identity is yet to be revealed to the public.
According to the police, Eisenman learnt that his juvenile daughter had been sold in the sex trafficking organization in October 2020 in Seattle area. He also learnt that her 19-year old boyfriend was responsible for selling her.
The suspect managed to rescue his daughter and took her home in November 2020. Later that month, he learnt of the whereabouts of his daughter’s boyfriend and confronted him.
Eisenman is said to have abducted the 19-year old, tied him up and put him in the trunk of the vehicle. He then hit him with a cinder on his head and stabbed him repeatedly leading to his death.
The police further said that the suspect drove the vehicle with the body to a remote area in North Spokane County and abandoned it.
The vehicle remained in the position since last year before it was moved by a third party leading to the gruesome discovery.
Police said Eisenman was taken into custody without incident and was booked into Spokane County Jail for first-degree murder. Prior to this incident, Eisenman has no violent criminal history.
