A 19-year-old Wisconsin teenager is facing life in prison after admitting to killing an accused pedophile who had been accused of abusing and prostituting her to other men for sex. Chrystul Kizer admitted to killing 34-year-old Randall Volar after he raped her, claim her attorneys.
In 2018 in the city of Kenosha, Wisconsin, Kizer allegedly shot Volar twice in the head, set his home on fire and then stole his luxury vehicle, the authorities claimed. Kizer was 17 at the time of her arrest and confessed to the crime because “she was tired of him sexually assaulting her.” Because of the assault and other egregious behaviors, the teenager’s lawyers requested she be protected under sex trafficking victim laws.
However, prosecutors claim that Kizer pre-meditated the whole event and intend to present that evidence supporting that assertion at trial. They don’t believe that she was in danger at the time of the crime, nor was she engaged in prostituting during the time span either.
To make matters worse, they claim they have texts and communications between Kizer’s boyfriend and others that say she indeed plotted and planned the murder in advance. Even MORE incriminating potentially is that she researched hiding evidence and chatted with others about her potential plans, further complicating the case.
Adding insult to injury, Volar had been arrested and released previously, after being investigated for sex trafficking allegations – with Kizer being one of his victims, her attorneys told authorities. Kizer faces multiple charges, all felonies – including first-degree intentional homicide, possession of a firearm and arson. If convicted, she faces life in prison.
This case also brings to mind Cyntoia Brown’s – a woman who alleged she was a sex trafficking victim and killed a man who solicited her for sex. After serving a 15-year prison sentence, she was granted clemency by Tennessee Governor Bill Haslan.
A 2011 documentary, Me Facing Life: Cyntoia’s Story, brought light to her case and no doubt helped lead to her early release. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian-West even supported Cyntoia’s release. While the case of Kizer is still ongoing, one hopes that when the truth is determined that those who need to heal will be able to do so.
