19-Year-Old Facing Life In Prison For Killing Pedophile Human Trafficker Who Raped Her

A 19-year-old girl who was abused by a pedophile since she was as young as 16, is now being charged with his murder, and currently facing life in prison. Chrystul Kizer met a 33-year-old man named Randy Volar when she was just 16-years-old. At the time, Kizer was a troubled teen from a poor background who was selling her body on backpage.com.

After a few encounters together, Volar began requesting her services on a fairly regular basis and became a steady client. Meanwhile, during his encounters with her, he was running a hidden camera and collecting the footage. There were reportedly dozens of other children that he was doing this with as well, some as young as 12, although it is likely that he met these other children under different circumstances since there aren't many 12-year-olds on escorting websites like backpage.com.

The police caught up with Volar in early 2018 on charges of child enticement, using a computer to facilitate a child sex crime, and second-degree sexual assault of a child. Police uncovered mountains of evidence from Volar's home, including a large cache of videos that showed him abusing multiple different children on camera. Kizer was reportedly among the victims that were shown in the footage that was recovered from Volar's home. However, Volar only spent a single night in prison, and was quickly released without bail.

As time went on, Kizer's relationship with Volar became more intense, and he became more controlling and aggressive with her. Eventually, Volar began trafficking young Kizer and taking the money that she made with her other clients to prevent her from gaining any type of independence from him. Kizer then began to distance herself from Volar, but according to her, that is when he became even more aggressive, and even threatened to kill her if she left him. Around the same time, she became involved with a man named Delane Nelson, who reportedly gave her a handgun to defend herself, just in case if Volar followed through on his threats.

Not long after, Kizer ended up back at Volar's house, and while it is not entirely clear why she went there on her own free will, she says that Volar drugged her while she was at his house. While she was under the influence of whatever drug he had put in her drink, he tried to rape her, and during some point in the struggle, Kizer fired the gun, shooting Volar twice in the head. She then set his body on fire and fled the scene in his BMW, but she says that she doesn't remember any of it.

She was later picked up by police in nearby Milwaukee, and eventually confessed to the killing after an intense interrogation. District Attorney Michael Graveley, who allowed Volar to walk free for his crimes against children, has been very aggressive in pursuing the case against Kizer, calling for a charge of first-degree murder which could carry a sentence of life in prison. Furthermore, the judge in the case has ruled that the defense team will not be allowed to use Volar's crimes against children, or his abuse of Kizer as a justification for the killing.

Mark Horowitz is a graduate of Brandeis University with a degree in political science. Horowitz could have had a job at one of the top media organizations in the United States, but when working as an intern, he found that the journalists in the newsroom were confined by the anxieties and sensibilities of their bosses. Horowitz loved journalism, but wanted more freedom to pursue more complex topics than you would find on the evening news. Around the same time, he began to notice that there was a growing number of independent journalists developing followings online by sharing their in-depth analysis of advanced or off-beat topics. It wasn't long before Horowitz quit his internship with a large New York network to begin publishing his own material online.
