Update: Sex Trafficking Claims Made By Father Who Killed Daughter’s Boyfriend Not Corroborated By Police

The Washington dad who killed his daughter’s boyfriend for allegedly selling her into sex trafficking may have been lying about that sex trafficking:

More than a week after a Spokane father was arrested on suspicion of killing his teen daughter’s boyfriend, who he said sex trafficked her, little is known about the veracity of his claims. John B. Eisenman, 60, remains in the Spokane County Jail on a $1 million bond.

Eisenman told police last week that he killed his daughter’s boyfriend, Andrew Sorensen, 20, for allegedly sex trafficking her. Sorensen’s family called Eisenman’s claims “hurtful” and urged the public to “withhold judgment” until the case has been adjudicated.

Eisenman was arrested on Oct. 29. He confessed to police he killed Sorensen after rescuing his young daughter from forced prostitution in Seattle, that he says Sorensen sold her into. Sorensen was never arrested or named a suspect in any sex trafficking investigations by the Spokane Police Department, according to a public records request.

A spokesperson for the department, Cpl. Nick Briggs, said all the allegations of sex trafficking are coming from Eisenman.

“We can’t corroborate the veracity of any of those statements,” Briggs said. Briggs urged the public to wait for the facts of the case to come out before jumping to conclusions.

Sorensen’s family declined multiple times to speak with The Spokesman-Review but, in a statement to KHQ, refuted the allegations that he had been involved in sex trafficking.

“Claims by his confessed killer have been very hurtful and only added to our family’s grief,” the statement reads.

The family said Sorensen was adopted out of foster care and had several disabilities, including cerebral palsy, autism and developmental delays.
