Police: Burned, Headless Body Of Sex Offender Found

NORTHVILLE TOWNSHIP -- Construction crews found a torched and headless body Thursday morning on Hidden Ridge Drive in Northville Township.
Police were able to identify the body as 26-year-old Daniel Gene-Vincent Sorensen by using a partial fingerprint technique, despite the severe burns on Sorensens hands. Police said the severely burned hands seemed to be an effort to hide his identity.
Police confirmed that Sorensen was a registered sex offender.
A neighbor called to report a fire on Wednesday night, sometime between 7:30 and 10:30 p.m., according to police.
Police said they believe the man was killed elsewhere and then dropped off in the newly developed subdivision.
A Northville Township Water and Sewage crew found the body while checking on a hydrant.
Police said there were no clothes on the torso.
Search and rescue dogs were called to the scene to search for the victims head.
Police said they do not have any suspects at this time.
I’ll be the first to say it: “Not gonna say it!”
And so it begins....
I’ll be the first to say it. Good riddance!
I may need a drink to prepare for the sickening posts calling this a good deed that are sure to follow.
Second headless body thread of the day..... FR record I’ll bet
Nice of someone to give the fiend a lift. Just sayin'...
So I guess it's not too much a stretch to suspect a former victim or father of a traumatized child. Then again, maybe it's an immediate "cold case"?
Beat me to it. I was gonna go find that other thread again.
Freddy Kruger got it this way.
Indeed. But that's not what was meant.
A sex offender is found dead, burned and decapitated in an area with a large Muslim concentration. The method suggests this is a warning for other sex offenders to stay clear of Detroit. But no one will dare suggest who did this.
Thank you so much for this posting. I’ve been in a bad mood all day over oil prices, my sinking portfolio, and being on the phone the damn telephone company. This is what I needed to lift my spirits. A little bright spot of hope and justice! Thanks!
Yeah. I was wondering if this was an update on .....http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/1922868/posts
Any idea what he did?
I don’t believe in murdering the person but helping them on their way could be an option .... in the end, nobody gets away with anything ..... there is a higher court .... with no appeals ...
Yeah, looks like it.
Anyone else watch Dexter on Showtime?
2nd? I missed one?..........
Let me be the first....self torture, beheading and then set himself on fire.....thats what I call suicide...
Sounds like he might have run into a bigger sex offender than he was.
I adore Dexter!
This could be an inland version of him I guess :)
Sounds like it might be viral. Do you think other sexual predators will catch it?
Are they bothering to look?...........
This is nowhere near Detroit.
“Police said they believe the man was killed elsewhere and then dropped off in the newly developed subdivision.
“Search and rescue dogs were called to the scene to search for the victims head.”
Somehow, I have a feeling they’re wasting time with the SAR dogs “at the scene”.
Misdemeanor murder. May God bless his soul.
You mean: “One down”?
A good start.
Where were you?
“Sorensen was convicted of fourth degree criminal sexual conduct involving a victim between 13-17, according to the registry.”
Not sure when the crime occurred. It’s possible he was 18 and the girl was 17 at the time, but it also could have been he was 25 and the victim was 13.
In a round about way it is kind of self inflicted. It would have been the certain culmination of events initiated by his molesting of my kids
My post #41 was met with much laughter and it is a true story!!
Yeah, but it's in that state up north. Go Bucks!
How about the relatives of the offended.
Probably the Muslim Mafia.
So where is it? I saw the ClickonDetroit as the source of the info...may have drawn a wrong conclusion.
I love a happy ending!
I'll email you a bottle if you insist on reading the thread.
No, it’s in Michigan but not even close to Detroit.

Thanks. I'm not sure exactly what he did, but the above doesn't look good.
I’m one of these idiots that think the punishment should match the crime. In today’s system some people get off too easily, some people are over-punished.
So what’s the problem here? Arson? Improper disposal of trash? Littering?
Another HildaBeast Doner bites the dust . . ..
Worst case of suicide I ever seen.
