Father killed daughter’s boyfriend for selling her into sex-trafficking ring

A father from Washington state is facing first-degree murder charges for killing his daughter’s boyfriend, who allegedly sex trafficked her.

Police in Spokane said officers found a dead body in the trunk of a vehicle on Oct. 22. The body was identified as a 19-year-old male, but his name has not been released.

Following the discovery, 60-year-old John Eisenman was arrested for first-degree murder.

Police said in October 2020, Eisenman learned his juvenile daughter was allegedly sold to a sex-trafficking ring in the Seattle area. Eisenman learned his daughter’s boyfriend may have been the one responsible for her sale. Eisenman was able to rescue his daughter and bring her home in November 2020.

Police said later in November, Eisenman learned the whereabouts of his daughter’s boyfriend and confronted him. During the confrontation, police said Eisenman abducted the boyfriend, tied him up, and put him in the trunk of the vehicle. Eisenman then hit the boyfriend in the head with a cinder block and then stabbed him repeatedly, killing him, police said.

After the homicide, Eisenman drove the vehicle to a remote area in North Spokane County and abandoned the car with the body inside. The vehicle remained there for almost a year until it was moved in October 2021 by a third party and the gruesome discovery was made.

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.
