Police: Burned, Headless Body Of Sex Offender Found

POSTED: 12:08 pm EST November 8, 2007
UPDATED: 3:52 pm EST November 8, 2007

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 Sorensen’s 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 victim’s head.

Police said they do not have any suspects at this time.

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"?

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!

Somehow, I have a feeling they’re wasting time with the SAR dogs “at the scene”.

“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.

Michigan penal code

Thanks. I'm not sure exactly what he did, but the above doesn't look good.

I was wondering what "fourth degree" means here so I looked it up.

THE MICHIGAN PENAL CODE (EXCERPT)
Act 328 of 1931
750.520e Criminal sexual conduct in the fourth degree; misdemeanor.
Sec. 520e.
(1) A person is guilty of criminal sexual conduct in the fourth degree if he or she engages in sexual contact with another person and if any of the following circumstances exist:
(a) That other person is at least 13 years of age but less than 16 years of age, and the actor is 5 or more years older than that other person.
(b) Force or coercion is used to accomplish the sexual contact. Force or coercion includes, but is not limited to, any of the following circumstances:
(i) When the actor overcomes the victim through the actual application of physical force or physical violence.
(ii) When the actor coerces the victim to submit by threatening to use force or violence on the victim, and the victim believes that the actor has the present ability to execute that threat.
(iii) When the actor coerces the victim to submit by threatening to retaliate in the future against the victim, or any other person, and the victim believes that the actor has the ability to execute that threat. As used in this subparagraph, “to retaliate” includes threats of physical punishment, kidnapping, or extortion.
(iv) When the actor engages in the medical treatment or examination of the victim in a manner or for purposes which are medically recognized as unethical or unacceptable.
(v) When the actor achieves the sexual contact through concealment or by the element of surprise.
(c) The actor knows or has reason to know that the victim is mentally incapable, mentally incapacitated, or physically helpless.
(d) That other person is related to the actor by blood or affinity to the third degree and the sexual contact occurs under circumstances not otherwise prohibited by this chapter. It is an affirmative defense to a prosecution under this subdivision that the other person was in a position of authority over the defendant and used this authority to coerce the defendant to violate this subdivision. The defendant has the burden of proving this defense by a preponderance of the evidence. This subdivision does not apply if both persons are lawfully married to each other at the time of the alleged violation.
(e) The actor is a mental health professional and the sexual contact occurs during or within 2 years after the period in which the victim is his or her client or patient and not his or her spouse. The consent of the victim is not a defense to a prosecution under this subdivision. A prosecution under this subsection shall not be used as evidence that the victim is mentally incompetent.
(f) That other person is at least 16 years of age but less than 18 years of age and a student at a public or nonpublic school, and the actor is a teacher, substitute teacher, or administrator of that public or nonpublic school. This subdivision does not apply if the other person is emancipated or if both persons are lawfully married to each other at the time of the alleged violation.
(2) Criminal sexual conduct in the fourth degree is a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for not more than 2 years or a fine of not more than $500.00, or both.
