A Spokane, Washington, father is accused of killing his daughter’s boyfriend, believing he sold her into sex trafficking in Seattle last year.

Police say they found a car abandoned in the 1800 block E. Everett Ave. on Oct. 22 and a “foul odor” was emanating from the vehicle. Officers opened the trunk and confirmed human remains were inside.

While investigating the case, detectives discovered that 60-year-old John Eisenman Sr. learned his juvenile daughter was allegedly sold to a sex-trafficking organization in the Seattle area in Oct. 2020 for $1,000. Eisenman said his daughter’s 19-year-old boyfriend may have been the one responsible for her sale.

Eisenman was able to rescue his daughter and get her back to the Spokane area shortly after she was taken, police said.

Police said prior to this incident, Eisenman had no recent criminal history or any violent criminal history. Online Spokane County detention services records show his bond is set at $1 million.
