John Eisenman, 60 years old, is accused of killing the boyfriend of his daughter whom he claims sold her into sex trafficking. He was arrested in October and charged with first-degree murder.
Andrew Sorensen was allegedly tracked to the Airway Heights neighborhood of Spokane, Washington in 2020 and confronted on the street. Court documents state that he then tied him up and put him in the trunk of his car.
Early Life and Education
As a student at LMU, Eisman originally majored in screenwriting; however, by the end of his sophomore year he discovered his true passion lies within classics and archaeology.
Professor John Zacharia was willing to assist Eisman in making the transition, and now he holds his capstone thesis in hand.
He also has many exciting projects underway, some of which may become animated. This is thanks to Professor Zacharia and the LAGFF, as well as an amazing team of fellow students who are helping him turn his passion into reality. It is likely that Eisman will be one of the first students to receive a financial award from the LAGFF.
John Eisaman has held various professional positions throughout his professional life. He began in surveying, then transitioned into serving as Director of Finance for KB Home in Denver.
